Are you ready to dive into the depths of terror? Supermassive Games, renowned for their spine-chilling horror titles, is back with another masterpiece: House of Ashes. This game plunges players into a nightmarish journey, where ancient monsters rise from the ashes of 2,000 years ago.
A Terrifying Adventure
Meet Rachel King, a fearless US Army naval officer whose trip to Iraq takes an unexpected turn. It all begins when military radar detects an underground anomaly believed to be a chemical weapons factory. Rachel’s team embarks on a mission to investigate, only to stumble into an Iraqi army ambush. As the dust settles, they find themselves trapped in the ruins of the Akkadian Empire, an ancient civilization dating back 2,200 years to the reign of King Naram-Sin. Unbeknownst to them, they have awakened a creature of unimaginable horror.
A Haunting Legend
House of Ashes draws inspiration from true stories, adding a chilling layer of authenticity to the terrifying ordeal. Naram-Sin, the grandson of the Akkad dynasty’s founder, Sargon, takes center stage in a legendary tale of curses and empire collapse. Legend has it that Naram-Sin’s sack of the temple enraged the god Enlil. In his divine fury, Enlil unleashed plagues, famines, and death upon Mesopotamia. To protect the rest of civilization, the eight gods issued a curse that brought about the destruction of Akkad.
Unleash Your Survival Instincts
In House of Ashes, you’ll take control of various characters, including Rachel King, her not-so-friendly husband Eric King, two American soldiers – Nick and Jason, and Salim Othman. This diverse ensemble adds depth to the gameplay, as you navigate the treacherous ancient ruins and battle unspeakable horrors. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable descent into darkness.
Don’t miss out on this bone-chilling experience! House of Ashes is set to release in late 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Are you brave enough to face the horrors that await?
