Jason at MakingStarWars.net has released some details on The Last Jedi that are very interesting, but also quite spoiler, so read on with caution...
Jason is describes walkers being used in The Last Jedi that look like armoured gorillas. He says that are much larger than the AT-AT, with heavily armoured front legs, which give the walker its gorilla like profile.
Sounds like the First Order have been learning form the failures of the Empire. These walkers, called First Order Heavy Assault Walkers, won't be taken down by some flimsy little towing cables.
You can read Jason's piece over at MakingStarWars.net, and see a couple of sketches revealing the look of the new walkers.
I have to say, these details are great, but I'm more excited by the reveal that there will be a ground assault in The Last Jedi. We have spent so much time looking at who the Last Jedi is, what will Rey be doing on Ahch-to and what we might learn about Snoke, that I hadn't stopped to consider the traditional Star Wars set pieces. I wonder what planet will see this huge ground battle? What is the target? Hopefully not a hidden resistance base, we've seen that in a chapter two already.
