Bandai Namco's next chapter of the Anthology is heading to Iraq
You'll feel the dust on your face and the heat, well everywhere, as you head to Iraq for The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes. Set in 2003, this chapter of Supermassive Games' anthology will focus on CIA field operative Rachel King who joins an elite military unit on a raid of a suspected underground chemical weapons facility, in the shadow of the Zagros Mountains.
As expected in this collection of story-rich adventure horror games, Rachel and the unit is ambushed by a local 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.
It is here in the darkness beneath the Arabian Desert, that you'll discover that something evil has awakened. Savage and unstoppable, a nest of ancient and unearthly creatures has a new prey to hunt!
“We are thrilled to reveal this third game within The Dark Pictures Anthology," said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games. "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!"
You, and you friends if you opt for co-op/Movie Night gameplay, will make horrific discoveries with impossible decisions facing each of 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 - that's for you to decide!
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will launch in 2021 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam PC.
