The first DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is on the way with Jack the Ripper and to properly prepare you for the mind of the serial killer, Ubisoft Montpellier has unveiled a new virtual reality trailer. You can view it through Samsung Gear VR or try out YouTube’s 360 video player.
Adrian Lacey, Director of IP Development at Ubisoft Montpelier, stated that, “Nicolas [Bouchet] and I started working on this as a test to see how we could adapt a trailer to offer a true VR experience. Originally, we hadn’t planned on releasing it, but the results were so good we had to share it. The Jack the Ripper VR trailer is just a small taste of what virtual reality can bring, both in terms of storytelling and how it can help players go deeper into our worlds.”
Releasing on December 22nd, the Jack the Ripper DLC takes place 20 years after the events of Syndicate and sees Evie Frye sans Jacob being tasked with hunting down the killer. However, not everything is as it seems. What are your thoughts on the DLC? Let us know in the comments.
