Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. unveiled an early peek at Unknown 9: Awakening gameplay today. Actress Anya Chalotra stars as Haroona, the protagonist, a world-traveling adventurer with enigmatic abilities, in this third-person narrative-driven action-adventure game developed by Reflector Entertainment.

Unknown 9: Awakening chronicles the adventures of Quaestor Haroona, who has the power to enter the Fold, a parallel reality that eludes human understanding. Players will take on the role of Haroona, a Quaestor endowed from birth with the power to explore the Fold, a strange dimension that exists within and outside of our own. Along the way to uncovering the secrets of the Fold, she will become adept at using her unique link to the entity to bring its energies into our reality. However, people take note of such influence. The Ascendants, a breakaway group from the shadowy Leap Year Society that plans to utilize the Fold to change human history, immediately set their sights on Haroona.

To put the wrongs of Haroona's past to rest, players will embark on an epic adventure. While searching for deeply hidden knowledge, she will become adept at using her unique link to the Fold to bring its energies into our world, yet no one will ignore her. A sect called the LYS has a breakaway group called the Ascendants, and they have Haroona in their sights. The Ascendants seek to change human history by manipulating the Fold. As the story progresses, they'll have to decide how to approach battles: sneak up on foes from behind or take control of them by stepping into their shoes. They'll also have to dodge bullets, use shields, unleash energy blasts, and tailor their playstyle to their liking.

The team behind Unknown 9: Awakening has finally revealed some gameplay footage. The creative director of Reflector Entertainment, Christophe Rossignol, expressed his excitement at the team's recent efforts to develop a new component of this vast narrative universe. The game will have a rich and vivid universe, and players will have a thrilling adventure through it. Anya Chalotra, who plays the game's strong protagonist, Haroona, is also involved with the development. British actress Anya Chalotra first came to fame playing Yennefer of Vengerberg in the iconic Netflix series The Witcher. The actress was a natural fit for the protagonist role in Unknown 9: Awakening because of her talent for giving life to complex female characters.

Unknown 9: Awakening will be released on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this summer. The game is the gateway to the vast narrative universe of the Unknown 9 intellectual property, encompassing a web of interwoven stories presented through comic books, podcasts, novels, and more. Indulging in these stories will allow players to prolong their time in Unknown 9: Awakening. Anyone with the right eye may find their fair share of hidden content, callbacks, crossovers, etc.
