Who is the real enemy in The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes?

In the shadow of the Zagros mountains a US 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 and must navigate a way to escape – unaware that something ancient and evil has awakened in the shadows and is hungry for blood.

In this terrifying underworld, ask yourself who your real enemy is. The monsters hiding in the shadows or the other people trapped with you? Will you set aside your rivalries to face a common enemy? Tough decisions will have to be made… and the consequences could be deadly.

Eagle-eyed fans may notice a hidden message in the trailer leading to a special website filled with the lore and secrets behind House of Ashes!

House of Ashes will release on 22 October 2021 on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC and is available for pre-order now.

The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of stand-alone, branching cinematic horror games, designed to present a new terrifying experience on a regular basis. Each game is unconnected and will feature a brand-new story, setting and new cast of characters. Experience moments of tension and terror alone in single player mode, with your friends through 2 player online shared story or with up to 5 players in the couch-friendly movie night mode.
