Earlier today, during the Summer Game Fest event, BANDAI NAMCO announced The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes. Not only was an announcement trailer shown off, but a release date was announced as well. BANDAI NAMCO says the game will launch in the Americas later this year, on October 22nd 2021. It will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam. You can check out the trailer over on Youtube since it’s age restricted. And down below is more info from BANDAI NAMCO about the game, in addition to details on what they’re including in a special edition they’re calling the Pazuzu Edition.
The place… Iraq. The time… 2003. In the shadow of the Zagros mountains a military unit comes under fire from Iraqi forces. The resulting firefight causes an earth tremor where both sides fall into the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. With all communication with the outside world 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 new prey to hunt. Horrific discoveries and impossible decisions now face the survivors as they strive to escape the terrifying threat they’ve awakened. Will they each prioritize their own survival, or put aside their fears and personal rivalries to fight together as one against these underworld monsters?
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will also have an exclusive Pazuzu Edition, which includes the House of Ashes game, the Pazuzu Edition box, an exclusive underworld creature figurine (9x9x10cm), a metal pin, exclusive art print, stickers, and access to the pre-order bonus, known as The Curator’s Cut. Day-1 access to The Curator’s Cut opens up previously unavailable scenes with different playable characters and outcomes.
