A trailer has been released at the end of the new installation of the SuperMassive Games The Dark Pictures anthology, The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes. The new trailer revealed not only the next game in the series but also a previously unreleased aspect of the game series' format, announcing the next game as a season one finale for the series.
The new trailer, also released on TheHunters Twitter account, teases the new premise for the season finale. The trailer shows a series of grotesque images and hints at the possibility of a less supernatural focus for the new game, instead focusing on body horror more akin to the SAW series. The series has previously seen monsters and ghosts as the primary antagonists, so this trailer definitely points to a shift in the eight-part game series. This shift in tone is certainly in line with the fact that The Devil in Me, the next installation in the series, will serve as the season finale.
The series, which will be made up of eight games, has already released the first three seasons, and The Devil in Me is upcoming. It is not known how many seasons will be included in the series and the impact of this split on the final four games in this series is unclear.
