Much like how The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope was teased at the end of last year's Man of Medan, the newest entry (out today on PlayStation 4) has revealed the third instalment in the Supermassive Games franchise. It is called The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, and you can get your very first look at it in the trailer above. While no platforms are attached, given its launch in 2021, we have to assume there will be a PlayStation 5 version alongside PS4.
The setting at least reminds us a little bit of this month's Amnesia: Rebirth, as an army platoon is sent to some sort of desert where they'll encounter a swarm of monsters. We're yet to play Little Hope, with review code only coming through yesterday. We'll be sure to bring you a full review of that one early next week.
Are you buying Little Hope? And what do you make of House of Ashes? Let us know in the comments below.
I like supermassive. They'd have been a fantastic partner for a launch exclusive horror game. Oh well.
Something to look forward to, i love these games! One odd thing about Little Hope that i've started playing, the Curator says that he doesn't recognise me, i must be new but I have save data from Medan? I would have thought it would have noticed that
Man of Medan was no where near as good as Until Dawn, I hope they can up the quality rather than trying to push a new one out every year.
Glad to see they're making more of these kinds of games. I very much enjoyed Until Dawn, and I'm eager to try out Little Hope this weekend.
Disappointed in Man of Medan and what I've heard of Little Hope so far.
I feel like Supermassive need a big shake up and rethink of their direction from here. Until Dawn was great (and in development a long time) but since then it feels like they've rushed out way too many mediocre projects.
Man of Medan was terrible. From narrative issues like plot holes, logical incongruities, and a predictable twist to technical issues like glitchy faces and environments, I just could not like this game. Even playing with my fiancee couldn't lessen the sheer irritation of trudging through this horrible mess of an interactive drama.
Not looking forward to this or Little Hope as I'll probably have to play them with my fiancee... Ugh... At least I can irritate her by saying nothing and intentionally getting the characters killed. That's actually kinda fun.
This one looks fun! I’m still working on Man of Medan and plan on getting Little Hope sometime soon after I finish.
Well now I know what to expect from the third game since they literally pull the exact same twist like the last game in little hope
I only took the plunge on Man of Medan only after it hit a 50% off sale after the so-so reviews/glitches, but haven't played it yet.
Its a shame between Supermassive signing with Stadia & Quantic Dream going multiformat,that there really isn't a similar 2nd party dev for Sony to team up with on a Until Dawn type sequel, &/or if we'll see the sort of narrative adventures like Heavy Rain,Detroit etc.,from Quantic Dream either.
But yep,without the Sony polish these games seem a bit guilty of Telltale cookie-cutter design style.
I completed Men of Medan last night. It was ok, the story was good but I felt the characters and settings felt disjointed. There will be times when something happens, a face or person appears which scares the character yet they don't mention it at all, it felt like a lot of the horror and jump scares were for the player only and weren't tied to the characters etc.
I love the idea of smaller horror games, Until Dawn was amazing, a bit long but good, these smaller stories feel better as with most horror once you become familiar with the monster it stops becoming scary. I will buy Little Hope and I'm hoping the developers have ironed some of the issues out.
@Icey664 ok not a competition
@roe nice joke sweetie
@Taylorzombie Actually yes it basically is... wouldn't you want sequels to be as good if not better? I like the franchise and I want to see it be as good as it can be.
The way you answer to other comments here makes you just sound like a fanboy to be honest.
@Icey664 makes you sound like you always complaining
@Taylorzombie You know who wasn't complaining? Your mom when I banged her last night.
@Icey664 aww babe and did you bang my father too?
