Finally, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’s Victorian London setting is being used as nature intended: to do a story about Jack the Ripper.
The Ripper story is a piece of downloadable content that’s set 20 years after the events of the main game, and features an older Evie Frye, one of Syndicate’s two protagonists. From the trailer, it sounds like the Ripper is a person from Evie’s past. He may also be an Assassin. He may also be proto-Jason Voorhees. It’s tough to really say.
The Ripper DLC will run players $15. Hopefully at the end you get to tear that dumb bag off Jack’s head. Who will be revealed? My money’s on Super Old Charles Dickens. It’s a twist because he supposedly died 18 years earlier. Dun dun duuuun.
