Ahead of gameplay reveal next week.
We’re 2 video games into designer Supermassive’s Dark Pictures Anthology scary series, with a third – entitled House of Ashes – on the not-too-distant horizon. Supermassive states it’ll be revealing more on this most current instalment next week, but first, there’s a brand-new teaser trailer.House of Ashes,
as befits the Dark Pictures anthology format, offers up a new standalone story with its own particular take on fear. Gone is the nautical scary of the series’ very first getaway, Man of Medan, and the time-hopping witch-y fear of last year’s Little Hope, changed by something intending to be a little grittier based upon what’s been revealed so far.Set in Iraq, 2003, House of Ashes focuses on a military system which comes under fire from Iraqi forces in the region of the Zagros mountains.
“The resulting firefight”, explains publisher Bandai Namco, “triggers an earth trembling where both sides fall under the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. With all interaction severed, our lead characters are trapped in a scary underworld they need to browse to escape, uninformed that something evil and ancient has awakened in the shadows and has found a brand-new victim to hunt.”
Supermassive’s latest teaser, above, is more of a state of mind piece than anything, so if you’re searching for something a bit more revealing, you can cast your eyes back to the House of Ashes post-credits teaser discovered in last year’s Little Hope. An appropriate gameplay reveal is set for next Thursday, 27th May, at 5pm BST/9am PDT, which need to offer our best appearance yet.There’s no
release date for House of Ashes at present however it’s coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC later on “this year”.
