House of Ashes – The Dark Pictures and My Friend Peppa Pig are among this week’s new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
The third instalment of Supermassive’s horror anthology series The Dark Pictures comes to Xbox consoles this week. House of Ashes – which stars Ashley Tisdale – is set in ruins of a Sumerian temple.
Other new Xbox releases include the delayed deployment of XBLA remaster Toy Soldiers HD and the mystery visual novel Reminiscence in the Night.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
