Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will receive DLC focused on possibly the most notorious British serial killer of all time – Jack The Ripper.
Announcing the content at Sony’s TGS media briefing yesterday, Ubisoft said that the Jack The Ripper content will be set 20 years after the events of Syndicate‘s story.
The add-on campaign takes place 20 years after the events of Syndicate’s story, and is set “during the Autumn of Terror in Whitechapel, 1888, a killer’s abominable acts of murder and mutilation terrorise London, creating widespread panic and worldwide media attention,” according to Ubisoft. “Players will join forces with Inspector Frederick Abberline of Scotland Yard, to hunt down Jack The Ripper in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the infamous serial killer.”
Players will be able to download the DLC standalone or as part of a season pass. For those who choose to purchase the season pass, they will also receive:
- The Last Maharaja mission pack, which includes 10 new missions set within London where you play as Duleep Singh on a quest to reclaim his birthright as the Maharaja.
- A Long Night mission, in which you help protagonist Jacob Frye “track down an endangered fellow gang member and bring him back to the hideout.”
- Streets of London gameplay pack, which includes an extra hour of missions, new gear, new weapons, and an XP boost.
No release date has been set for the DLC, however Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One on October 23rd, with the PC port set to be released on November 19th. You can check out the new trailer for the Jack the Ripper DLC below.
