Revealed on the Summer Game Fest livestream, a new trailer showcases protagonist Haroona, portrayed by renowned British actress Anya Chalotra, and her globe-trotting journey.

In the new trailer, players learn that Haroona has always relied on her beloved mentor Reika’s teaching to help her master abilities related to the Fold, a mysterious dimension that overlaps our own. Since Haroona was a child, Reika trained her on the intricacies of this other dimension, tutored her on the mysterious and unknown elements of the world, and often recounted tales of enigmatic immortal figures said to preside over all of humanity’s knowledge — the Unknown 9.

All her training came to an abrupt end the moment Vincent Lichter decided to take Reika’s life. As the leader of the Ascendants, Vincent believes the Unknown 9 have kept humanity from realizing its true potential for far too long. A former pupil of Reika’s, Vincent committed himself to freeing the world of their influence, ensuring humankind takes control of its own destiny, regardless of the consequences. His betrayal took too much from Haroona, so she must stop him. Can Haroona prevent humanity’s best-kept secrets from falling into the wrong hands?
