Next month, we will once again return to Supermassive Games’ experimental Dark Pictures Anthology with House of Ashes. The game, like its two predecessors, will find a group of people in a strange situation against some type of seemingly supernatural force. This time it will be a group of soldiers in Iraq, who find themselves hunted by a creature in underground caves. Now we get an extended look at the game, along with some commentary from the game’s Director.
Publisher Bandai Namco released the video, which you can see in full below, of over 20 minutes of gameplay footage. It’s accompanied by commentary from Director Will Doyle. In it we see some of the things that has defined the series, specifically the ability to make choices and the impact it has on certain characters, with some story beats. Doyle also shows us some collectibles and explains what collecting them will grant you, eventually giving you a broader context for what is happening.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes is set to release on October 22nd for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. You can read more about the game’s size and preload information, specifically for the PS5 version, through here.
