We’re delighted that the sport will launch on Xbox One and will probably be Optimized for Xbox Collection X|S; that is our first alternative to provide you a little bit extra element in regards to the upcoming sport.
For these of you who don’t know, The Darkish Photos Anthology is a collection of intense, standalone, branching cinematic horror video games. Every sport is playable in single-player or in two multiplayer modes: two-player on-line Shared Story and as much as 5-player sofa coop Film Evening.

It was particularly thrilling to listen to from the Xbox group and we had an important response to Man of Medan changing into accessible with Xbox Sport Move earlier this yr!
Every sport in The Darkish Photos Anthology is a standalone story, and all of the video games are very completely different. We’ve gone from a ghost ship misplaced within the South Pacific to an deserted city in New England and now to the Zagros Mountains.
Our sport is ready in Iraq, 2003. Because the battle attracts to an in depth, an elite army unit accompanied by CIA area officer Rachel King is ordered to research a suspected underground chemical weapons facility in shadow of the Zagros Mountains.

Every sport in The Darkish Photos Anthology has some foundation in a real-world reality, fiction, or legend and Home of Ashes is definitely no completely different. So, let me let you know extra about that historical temple that our heroes have all simply fallen into!
The temple lies on the coronary heart of an space as soon as known as Mesopotamia, an historic land that features what’s now modern-day Iraq. This space was the cradle of civilisation, with written information relationship again virtually six thousand years. The temple on the coronary heart of our sport was constructed by a real-world historic determine, the self-proclaimed god king of the Akkadian empire, Naram-Sin, who reigned round 2250 BC.
Naram-Sin is claimed to have upset the gods and introduced a curse down on his individuals by ransacking a temple belonging to Enlil, the god of earth, wind, and storms. The gods introduced battle, famine, and plague on his kingdom. In our story, Naram-Sin builds this big temple as a peace providing to the gods to carry the curse, however his pleas fall on deaf ears. Akkad falls, and Naram-Sin’s temple is buried below the desert sands… solely to be re-discovered millennia later!
The temple harks again to a distant and violent previous, and as a participant you could navigate by means of a labyrinth of historical tunnels and huge opulent halls. As you seek for a way of escape, you quickly turn out to be very conscious that you simply’re not the one one down there. Lurking within the shadows is one thing very actual and really, very harmful.
