Jack the Ripper and some shenanigans slink into Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

, | News

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will have DLC featuring Jack the Ripper because of course it will. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’s game proper is set in 1868, a full two decades before investigator Johnny Depp matched wits against Ian Holm’s Ripper, so how will the player as assassin Jacob Frye take on the turn-of-the-century killer? With the magic of DLC! Just like David Warner’s Ripper and Malcom McDowell’s H.G. Wells traveled through time, so can the player in a virtual London. The Jack the Ripper campaign will be one of seven planned DLC offerings (assuming everything goes well with the game’s technical launch) included in the Season Pass. Despite Jack’s appearance, the real killer is the Season Pass bonus.

Season Pass holders get an exclusive, permanent XP boost.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will launch on October 23rd on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the PC will get it on November 19th.
