The AT-TE walker will be available for the Galactic Republic exclusively on Geonosis. The AT-TE will be the largest vehicle in the game, and will not be on rails, meaning that it can be freely and fully controlled by the player. Unlike most other vehicles in Galactic Assault, the AT-TE walker cannot be purchased for Battle Points and spawned into from the spawn screen; instead, it is manually entered in-game on the battlefront. AT-TE walkers are dropped on the map in the second phase on the Geonosis Galactic Assault Map.
Not counting certain "living vehicles" such as the Tauntaun on Hoth:Outpost Delta, the AT-TE walker is the first vehicle in the game to not be spawned into from the spawn screen, but instead manually entered into on the map.
A key difference between the AT-TEs and the Tauntauns, however, is that AT-TEs are dynamically dropped in-game throughout a match.
