GamesBeat Empire Strikes Back’s Hoth battle recreated in Minecraft October 1, 2012 7:10 PM Mike Minotti This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff. Minecraft fans never stop impressing me. I mean, who else would recreate The Empire Strikes Back's iconic Hoth battle entirely inside their favorite game? It's funny, I remember a time when gaming had done this scene to death, but it's been long enough now that I'm sort of jonesing for a good Hoth level.
