The next game in The Dark Pictures Anthology has been revealed, previous titles have explored ghost ships and spooky woods, this time we’re heading in to the desert and dark caves. The game is titled House of Ashes and the teaser begins with soldiers shooting something off screen before moving on to a a woman, who looks rather like Ashley Tisdale, being spooked in a cave.
The video has been captured from the end of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope, and is also teased as a premonition in the game, and a third tease can be spotted when you first meet The Curator. In that scene he takes a book from a shelf, and it it seems to be a series of four books. The first has a ship, representing Man of Medan, on the spine and the second book, the one selected by the Curator has the stick figure from Little Hope. The third book seems to have a crescent of some sort on it, perhaps a moon, or something more stylised.
YouTube comments seem to think that the game is going to involve Pazuzu and the demons of the underworld in the Arabian Desert in Iraq. No formats have been revealed but we would expect PlayStation, Xbox, and PC as usual.
Little Hope is out today and scored an impressive 9/10 in our review.
“If there was ever a time to sit down with some friends and play a scary game, it’s Halloween 2020,” said our reviewer. “Little Hope fits the bill perfectly The annoyances found in Man of Medan have been almost completely removed leaving a spooky tale with jump scares to giggle about, heart racing action, and tonnes of atmosphere. For £25 Little Hope is an absolute steal and highly recommended.”
You should listen to that chap, talks some sense he does.
