Ubisoft has just released the Jack the Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, and are promoting the new content with this very cool Jack the Ripper interactive trailer which allows viewers to adjust the camera 360° in order to view events from any perspective.
The trailer actually started life as a VR experiment.
“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,” said Adrian Lacey, director of IP development at Ubisoft Montpelier.
“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.”
The Jack the Ripper DLC is available from today, December 15, on PS4 and Xbox One. It will be released on December 22 for the PC. Set around 20 years after the main game, the DLC follows Eve Frye as she hunts down the notorious killer. The DLC will cost $14.99 or is free to those who purchased the $29.99 season pass.
