To mark the release of the Jack The Ripper content for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Ubisoft have today released a new VR project.
Jack The Ripper has arrived in Syndicate from today and you can pick up the DLC right now from the Xbox One Games Store for £11.99.
The trailer below works best in its full VR form via the Samsung Gear VR platform, but thankfully Youtube and Facebook are able to provide a similar experience. Grab your mobile and fire up the apps in order to appreciate the video below. Featuring the infamous namesake of the DLC, the trailer takes you through the gritty streets of Victorian London and plunges viewers into Jack’s grisly world.
It provides great insight into how Ubisoft imagines the future of storytelling through the unique immersion VR provides.
“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,” says 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.”
