Assassin's Creed: Syndicate: Jack the Ripper story trailer revealed
A new trailer detailing the events of the Jack the Ripper DLC in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate was uploaded to YouTube today. Available to Season Pass holders on December 15th, the DLC contains a large story section during which Evie Frye must stop the notorious Whitechapel murderer.
The trailer hints at quite a bit of action, direct face-offs with the killer and crooked accomplices. It seems that Jack has an ulterior motive to his killings, as the trailer has him state, "I will gut every last one of them if that's the quickest way to you." Evie Frye also comments, "Jack lures me through the looking glass."
The Ripper's moves seem familiar as he leaps and dives through the trailer. We've seen countless assassins move the same way throughout the Assassin's Creed series. Coincidence? We think not.
Another tidbit of information flying by in the trailer, possibly of the utmost importance, is a single line of Jack's: "Welcome to the reunion, Miss Frye." This suggests that the Ripper and Evie have met before. Perhaps this scene is towards the end of the story once players have faced off with the killer before, but it could be a hint at who the killer is.
The last clue gleaned from the trailer is the timeline. Evie Frye is told, "You need to deliver the Ripper's head on a spike soon." The beginning of the story has five women dead to the Ripper before Evie is involved, and another is killed in the trailer, suggesting that people's lives may be in danger the longer it takes to catch the murderer.
The Jack the Ripper DLC will be available December 15th to Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Season Pass holders. As of now, there's no telling if the expansion will be available for purchase separately.
