Narrative Action-adventure ‘Unknown 9: Awakening’ Revealed, Launching Summer 2024

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has revealed the first look at gameplay for Unknown 9: Awakening, a narrative action-adventure game scheduled to release in Summer 2024 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam.

Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg in Netflix’s The Witcher) joins the cast as Haroona, the audacious main protagonist of the game.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Unknown 9: Awakening is a third-person, narrative-driven, action-adventure game that follows the story of Haroona — a Quaestor born with the ability to venture into the Fold: a mysterious dimension that overlaps our own. On her quest for powerful hidden knowledge, she will learn to master her unique connection to the Fold, which allows her to channel its powers into our world. This does not go unnoticed, as Haroona quickly becomes the target of the Ascendants, a splinter faction of a secret organisation known as the Leap Year Society, looking to use the Fold to alter the course of human history. 

Players will take on the role of Haroona, who embarks on a globetrotting journey to right the wrongs of her past. As this quest unfolds, players will choose to stay hidden in the shadows or fight by stepping into their enemies to control them, dodge bullets, shield attacks, hurl energy, and devise creative combat combinations to customise their playstyle. 

Unknown 9: Awakening will serve as the entry point in the IP’s expansive narrative universe, which will include interconnected adventures across comic books, novels, and more.
