It was already a pretty fair assumption to make, but Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games have now confirmed that The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will indeed be launching on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 at some point next year. This follows a teaser trailer revealed after the credits of last month's pretty good Little Hope.
We've also got some initial story details by way of a press release. "Iraq, 2003. As the conflict draws to a close, CIA field operative Rachel King joins an elite military unit on a raid of a suspected underground chemical weapons facility in the shadow of the Zagros Mountains. Arriving at the coordinates, the unit is ambushed by a local patrol led by Sergeant Salim Othman. During the battle, an earthquake opens sinkholes in the ground, pitching both sides into the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. In the darkness beneath the Arabian Desert, something evil is awakened. Savage and unstoppable, a nest of ancient and unearthly creatures has a new prey to hunt."
The announcement trailer also confirms that Ashley Tisdale of High School Musical fame will be a part of the cast. Did you enjoy Little Hope and are looking forward to the third instalment in The Dark Pictures Anthology? Get spooky in the comments below.
