‘The Dark Pictures Anthology: House Of Ashes’’ gets first official trailer

The game was previously teased at the end of 'Little Hope'

The trailer for the latest instalment in The Dark Pictures Anthology, House Of Ashes, has been released during Summer Game Fest.

House Of Ashes marks the third instalment in a proposed collection of eight games belonging to The Dark Pictures Anthology.

It will feature a group of five soldiers trapped in an underground Sumerian tomb during the Iraq War, and their attempts to escape the supernatural forces within.

Sent down into the ‘House of Ashes’ in search of chemical weapons, the group are expected to either work together or save themselves, attempting to understand the ancient powers that are picking them off “one by one”.

Players can switch between all five characters in House Of Ashes, much like in previous games Man Of Medan and Little Hope. There will also, alongside this solo mode, be local and online co-op modes.

House Of Ashes was teased at the end of Little Hope, but this is the first time a full trailer has been revealed to the public. The previous teaser showed actress Ashley Tisdale in a starring role.

The trailer, shown at Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live event, announced the release date would be October 21.
