The third game (of the whopping eight planned) in the Dark Pictures Anthology got a new trailer at the Summer Game Fest today. House of Ashes takes a squad soldiers from the Iraq War and traps them deep underground in a Sumerian tomb. Then things get worse.

Players can swap between the perspective of five different characters as they battle supernatural forces and attempt to escape. You'll be able to play House of Ashes solo, in co-op mode, or even with up to five players.

The new trailer also includes a release date of October 21.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
