Great news for fans of horror games as Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games have announced that The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes, the third chapter in The Dark Pictures Anthology will be released in 2021.

The official synopsis according to the publisher is as follows: 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.

“We are thrilled to reveal this third game within The Dark Pictures Anthology. Like the previous stories, Man Of Medan and Little HopeHouse of Ashes will bring a brand-new story and cast of characters to players, with its own unique twists and turns, and a new threat for the characters to face. We can’t wait to share more details about the story!” said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games.
