Unknown 9 is a new "narrative action adventure game" from Reflector Entertainment that will be making its way to next-gen consoles.

In Unknown 9: Awakening, a young woman named Haroona was raised on the streets of India. That's a tough enough life as it is, but Haroona has an even greater problem: she's plagued by visions of her own death, some of which we saw in the reveal trailer.

Check out the Unknown 9: Awakening Official Teaser Trailer to see the first bits of this mysterious new story in motion!

At the opening of the trailer, Haroona hides something behind a brick in a wall. She is nearly assaulted by some children but manages to get out of the way in time, thanks largely to a mysterious power where she sees ghostly images of her attackers assaulting her.

These ghostly images represent The Fold, a strange hidden dimension that she accidentally discovers. While her early days in this third-person adventure are a struggle, a press release states that she'll soon meet a mentor who will teach her to use her abilities, suggesting that the game will let you play as both a child and an adult at some point.

Haroona then snaps out of this strange vision, turning on her attackers and confronting them. The scene then appears to flash forward, showing an adult woman's hands removing the same brick and retrieving the object she stashed there. The teaser trailer concludes with a splash screen showing a group of characters we did not yet see in the trailer.
