Today, UK-based developer Supermassive Games pulled back the curtain on its upcoming cinematic anthology horror title, House of Ashes, with a dev diary spotlighting one of the game’s major stars, Ashley Tisdale. Go ahead and check out the new interview footage down below:
As you can see, the High School Musical actress relays her positive experience on-set filming the motion-capture sessions and admits that – while she’s a fan of the genre – this will be her first role in a piece of horror media. Specifically, the character Tisdale plays is a, “CIA operative […] on a mission to find chemical weapons. So, she’s pretty badass.”
Of course, House of Ashes will be the third title in the Until Dawn developer’s Dark Pictures Anthology series, following 2019’s Man of Medan and 2020’s Little Hope, and is scheduled to be releasing on Oct. 22, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
