Free to Season Pass owners, or $14.99 on its own, the Jack the Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will launch on December 15 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Playing as Evie Frye as she returns to London after being absent for 20 years, Jack the Ripper sees her investigating a series of crimes that draw her into the dark underworld of Victorian London’s Whitechapel district.

Lead Mission Designer Benjamin Dumaz revealed that they’ve been working on Jack the Ripper for over a year and it will introduce a new gameplay system. “With the fear system, you will scare away your opponents or use friendly fire at your advantage,” he says.

  • The Last Maharaja mission pack – Join Duleep Singh in 10 new missions as he fights to reclaim his heritage and take his rightful place as the Maharaja.
