Preview: House of Ashes

House of Ashes is Supermassive Games’ newest title in the Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of interactive horror movies. Where previous titles featured ghost ships and haunted towns, House of Ashes heads in a more visceral and action-packed direction, with the player taking control of a special forces team at the tail end of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
