Secret message in the trailer
Last week we had our first look at the game, which will be released next year for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X, with a teaser. A secret message also surfaced in the video, likely announcing a scavenger hunt. Slow down the video below to a speed of 0,25 with the YouTube player, then the teaser will stop in 1:16 minutes at the right time.
Next to the text "Are you looking for answers in the unknown? You are more than you think” is an Internet address that leads you to a first puzzle. We don't yet know what will happen after that. Unknown 9 tells the story of a young Indian woman named Haroona who struggles to survive on the streets of Kolkata. However, thanks to a power that is still mysterious to them, the protagonist is able to disappear into another dimension - known as The Fold.
