The first trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons has arrived online and fans have already spotted a connection to the animated Rebels series.
After EA finally announced their mystery Star Wars game was titled Squadrons, fans have been eagerly awaiting the first trailer’s arrival. The cinematic footage shows off intense dogfights between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire towards the end of the war. While it doesn’t reveal any gameplay, the trailer briefly reveals players will jump into the cockpit for a riveting single-player campaign, before joining up with a squad in a 5-v-5 multiplayer. Watch the Star Wars: Squadrons trailer below.
But with any game set in a galaxy far, far away there’s always bound to be Easter eggs to the wider universe of stories and characters. It seems Star Wars: Squadrons is no different, since Hera from the Star Wars Rebels animated series can be spotted wearing her iconic goggles in the cinematic trailer. After her ship from Rebels, The Ghost, was spotted during the finale of The Rise of Skywalker, fans have wondered when we’ll see Hera, Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger again. Take a look at Hera in the new game below.
