The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes is the third of eight chapters in Supermassive’s horror series and was first teased back in October 2020. The first two games – Man of Medan and Little Hope – launched in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Bandai Namco provided a summary of the new game’s narrative, which seems to include High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale in a starring role:

In The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, the year is 2003, and in the shadow of the Zagros mountains in Iraq, a military unit comes under fire from Iraqi forces. The resulting firefight causes a heavy tremor, opening up a rift in the earth that swallows both sides, causing soldiers to fall into the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. With all communication severed, our protagonists are trapped in a terrifying underworld they must navigate to escape, unaware that something ancient and evil has awakened in the shadows and has found a new prey to hunt.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will launch on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S later this year.
