Just in time for Halloween, the next chapter in The Dark Pictures Anthology, House of Ashes, will (make you) jump on PlayStation 5 and PS4 from 22nd October. As with past instalments, there’ll be a two-player online mode and couch-friendly local multiplayer option, in addition to the standard single player experience.
“In the shadow of the Zagros mountains a military unit comes under fire from Iraqi forces,” the press release teases. “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.”
A Pazuzu Collector’s Edition will be available at launch, featuring a figurine, stickers, pin, and art print. A triple-pack is also in the works, bundling all three games from the series so far. And finally, if you pre-order you’ll get early access to the Curator’s Cut, “opening up previously unavailable scenes with different playable characters and outcomes”.
