As far as the story, which we see a bit of in the trailer, this game follows Yuri Lowel. Young Yuri is a swordsman who falls in with the wrong crowd at one point in his life. Yuri just got out of prison after a botched heist landed him being framed with stealing a powerful artifact, now he has to rebuild his life.
Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:

Players control a single party member in real-time combat while other party members are controlled by a customized set of A.I. commands. Players can swap between any of the four characters at any time during battles and can perform physical attacks, Magic Artes or even powerful Mystic Artes.
