Augusta.  She is accompanied by Amleth Glencaire, a high ranking military official, which players control in game.  With the assistance of Suleyman Kahlenberg whose specialty is in politics, Basil Sabanci renown in economics, Fleet Eriksen a columnist, and Violette Szand an attractive spy, whom are all referred to as the Five Grave Sinners (see photo below).  Together, they must face the ultimate villain, Brynhildr, a valkyria (god-like deity) on the opposing side of Rus.

Two sides at war, which one will you choose?

The trailer illustrates Princess Ophelia dressed in an elaborate white outfit and rose hairband, addressing to the masses waiting outside of the palace walls.   Amleth plots the unit’s next move against Rus as the trailer progresses, leaving fans wondering what the fateful outcome would be.  The trailer most definitely highlights some key events from the game.
