Another Halloween season is upon us, which means many things. The air is getting chillier, the leaves are turning colors, and Spirit Halloween stores are taking over. It also means that it’s time for another chapter in The Dark Pictures Anthology. Supermassive Games’ horror anthology has brought fresh terrors to gamers over the last two years. After previously taking us on a doomed trip out to sea and to a haunted town, we are now headed deep underground for House of Ashes.
The year is 2003 and the Iraq War is coming to a close. Despite President Bush declaring Mission Accomplished, there is still much work to be done. Specifically, the chemical weapons the government claims Saddam Hussein is hoarding need to be tracked down. Thanks to the use of an advanced satellite program known as Caelus, though, the facility holding these weapons appears to be located. A Special Forces team, led by Colonel Eric King, is sent to secure the location. Since this is a story from The Dark Pictures Anthology, though, you know that what they will uncover will be more horrifying than any man-made weapon.
