The third entry in the continuing Dark Pictures Anthology is House of Ashes, and a fascinating chunk of gameplay has been revealed to whet our appetites – and give us the odd fright.

This entry in the series is set in Iraq, 2003. “In the shadow of the Zagros mountains a military unit comes under fire from Iraqi forces. The resulting firefight causes an earth tremor where both sides 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 game is slated to be available later this year, on PS5, Xbox and PS4. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
