How To Unbar The Best Ending?
As I told you before, the game is not a cakewalk and will need blood and sweat to reach the best ending. Once you enter the game, you are covered from all sides. Now be ready to become the prey.
The game will start in the Mesopotamian (Akkadian temple), where all the characters will be found trapped in between annihilated dead bodies. The plot twist is, the dead people will turn into zombies and are reanimated to attack you from all sides, and once you fall in their trap, you are dead.
The game is based on a 2003 Iraq war, where all the characters are trapped and have to tackle all the horrors to come in their way and reach the end. The end is completely based on your decisions and reaction time. Whether you make it to the end with all characters or no character, it’s all up to you. Here’s a tip for you, if you want to reach the best ending of House of Ashes, don’t let your guard down because you’re next!
The Main Challenge
You’re only challenge is to stay alive throughout the game. The only you need to complete is to save your fellow comrades and especially the main five.
In this game, you will find five characters who are
CIA officer Rachel King
Her husband, US Air Force lieutenant colonel Eric King
US Marine Corps first lieutenant Jason Kolchak
US Marine Corps sergeant Nick Kay
Iraqi Army lieutenant Salim Othman
These are the most important characters of the game. You will never get the desired ending without these. Your main goal should be maintaining a close relation and understanding in these five characters. Perfect timing, a sense of decision, and teamwork are all you need.
House Of Ashes Ending Explained
Primarily, focus on your Quick-Time-Events (QTEs) and complete them on time in order to get everyone alive at the end. The three main battles during the story which need the most attention are The Assault, Semper Fi, and Daylight. Because at these, the actual battles take place, and the QTE is marked.
The best way to get a score on your side is deliberately failing a QTE and saving one’s life instead of shooting. Try to seek out between the comrades. For instance, Jason and Salim can end all the problematic rivalry between them and clear up their relationship. Try to make a better relationship between Rachel and Clarice. Rachel can be nice to Clarice and tell her that she is not looking good and later agree when Clarice asks to come or not. In the dilemma when Jason had the choice to either kill or let the farmer with the hammer go, allow the farmer to live.
Make sure to take advantage of the air support. It is near death choice whether you choose air as a safety net or not. Before the eclipse is over, air support is seen to fire at the creatures to let the characters survive. Therefore make Eric go with the air support.
How Do I Save Everyone In The Game?
Take advantage of other characters too. Take Merwin with you and take care of him after he falls. Quite the QTE as Jason gives the morphine to Merwin. Otherwise, he will choke to death. Yes! You have to save Merwin as he is going to fix the radio.
It is a dilemma whether to save Rachel or cut the rope when Eric is struggling to hold onto her. Think the smarter way and cut the rope. Eric will survive, and Rachel will survive the fall. Eric and Nick should help Joey. Keep in mind to go the dark path to discover Joey’s medical kit. Rachel can stay behind and shoot with Jason when escaping the temple.
Eric is going to survive as Clarice will be left behind. Salim will help Rachel survive even from the monster even when one was attacking him.
What’s most important now is Each character will be left with their own QTE at the end, and everyone will tackle with their own. Make sure you don’t die at this moment after coming so close!
