The new game appears to feature some form of military personnel and looks to take players underground to the titular House of Ashes.
This tease was given in the same way that Little Hope was at the end of the first game in The Dark Pictures Anthology series – Man of Medan. These games are meant to be standalone experiences, rather than sequels, and developer Supermassive Games has said that it plans to release eight games under this banner.
In our review of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope, we said “tells a mostly one-note story with underdeveloped characters, and even a fun co-op mode can’t inject enough life to fix that. There weren’t enough meaningful consequences to the choices I made to inspire further digging into its box of tricks, which made additional playthroughs tough going, and the more generous amount of time you have to react to quick-time events deprived me of any gory deaths. A gorgeous setting and some genuinely frantic monster sequences save it from being a complete disaster, but this still feels like a step backward from the heights of interactive horror stories.”
