In House of Ashes, we follow the complex story of Rachel King, a CIA officer played by High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale, as she takes on a mission in Iraq to later face the supernatural in the ancient kingdom of Akkad. The horrific game digs into the psychological effects people experience under the strain of war as it puts its characters through life or death situations.
The player's decisions throughout the game affect the branching narrative of House of Ashes and leads to several different endings, giving it a heightened sense of replayability.
According to Game Director Will Doyle at Supermassive Games, he and his team aimed to give players an authentic war story. They spoke with people from an Arabic point of view and script doctors to make sure the military perspective is on point.
The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on this coming October 22 (Friday).
