Supermassive Games is getting ready to unveil the next game in the Dark Pictures Anthology, House of Ashes. A new teaser trailer gives us a hint of the story, showing soldiers being stalked by some kind of mysterious creature. We also get to see what appears to be the monster’s point of view, which has a cool visual effect that feels very inhuman.

The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of horror games, each of which are self-contained and only last a few hours. The first game, Man of Medan, took place on the abandoned Ourang Medan ghost ship. The second game, Little Hope, is a Salem witch trial story set in small town America.

House of Ashes looks to be inspired by Sumerian myth, and takes place in modern-day Iraq. Ashley Tisdale from High School Musical plays a major role in the game. We’ll see more about House of Ashes in an upcoming gameplay teaser on May 27.
