It seems that our editor David can’t get a break from the scary thrills of The Dark Pictures Anthology, as Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games has just announced that The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will be available next year on current and next gen consoles. The third installment of the narrative horror series will take place in 2003 with a new cast of characters who will live or die by your hand.
Iraq, 2003. As the conflict draws to a close, CIA field operative Rachel King joins an elite military unit on a raid of a suspected underground chemical weapons facility in the shadow of the Zagros Mountains. Arriving at the designated coordinates, the unit is ambushed by a local enemy patrol led by Sergeant Salim Othman. During the battle, an earthquake opens sinkholes in the ground, pitching both sides into the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. In the darkness beneath the Arabian Desert, something evil is awakened. Savage and unstoppable, a nest of ancient and unearthly creatures has a new prey to hunt.
Horrific discoveries and impossible decisions face the survivors as they strive to navigate the underworld and escape the terrifying threat. Will they each prioritize their own survival, or put aside their fears and their personal rivalries to fight together as one?
“We are thrilled to reveal this third game within The Dark Pictures Anthology. Like the previous stories, House of Ashes will bring a brand-new story and cast of characters to players, with its own unique twists and turns, and a new threat for the characters to face. We can’t wait to share more details about the story!” said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will launch in 2021 on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PCs via STEAM®.
