Bandai namco has celebrated its event of the E3 2021, and has opened fire with House of Ashes, the third game in the series The Dark Pictures, about which a few days ago we told you quite a few things after a session in which we were able to see the game in advance.
Today, Bandai Namco has given a in-depth look at the lore that inspired them to create House of Ashes. The study will propose a current setting, in which a group of soldiers has a clash with an Iraqi force, and after a collapse, they end up in a dark catacomb related to the Sumerian empire.
The study has dived into the history of the place to build a survival plot around a strange curse of the Akkad Empire, dating back to 2200 years before Christ, whose monarch doomed its population. And to her, or rather what we have awakened, we will have to face, as always, making decisions, and seeing who survives or dies after making them …
The House of Ashes improvements over previous The Dark Pictures installments they will be very obvious (lighting, more realistic facial animations …) or details that will not be so much, but that will be there, as there will be 60 unique deaths, with their own animations depending on your decisions. They have also confirmed that they have new tricks to scare the player …
The technical aspect will be the only one that has improved. The game too will offer numerous accessibility options and different levels of difficulty, so you can tailor the experience to your skill or skill.
The idea is that you can mold your game to how you want to play it. If you want to read more about the game, you can read everything we have published about House of Ashes, but remember that it will arrive on October 22 at PS5, PS4, Xbox and PC and it will also with the Pazuzu special edition, whose contents we show you below these lines (although the most impressive is the figure of the creature from the catacombs).
Remember that you can follow everything that is happening at the Los Angeles fair in our E3 2021 special, as well as summaries of all the great events so far, from the Summer Games Festival, Ubisoft Forward, Xbox + Bethesda, Devolver Digital , Square Enix Presents, Capcom E3 Showcase and Nintendo Direct.
