A submarine glides majestically through the towering formations of impressive seascapes. It passes rock pillars several hundred metres high. Algae meadows and inhabited areas are left behind, and the debris of long-deserted bases gives an inkling of the transitory nature of human life underwater.
Suddenly the view changes, and we see the new cockpit and the story interface. We see stunningly rendered bases and rooms: dark, atmospheric, massive, of oppressive beauty. We are shown snatches of conversations with some of the characters– and then dive into battle!

This is the first appearance of loops and rolls as tactical manoeuvres of the player-controlled submarine. There are numerous and varied explosions and breath-taking lighting effects. The environment is reflected in the metal of weapon elements: the attentive observer can make out many small tell-tale signs of the upgraded krass engine(TM).

The trailer gives an extensive first glimpse of what is in store for all Aquarians and Aquarians-to-be from November.
