Here is a brief overview of the House of Ashes story, according to Bandai Namco:
“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.”
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes will release in 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. Head over to the Bandai Namco website for more information.
