Assassin's Creed Syndicate Jack the Ripper DLC releases next week

And you play as...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Jack the Ripper DLC will launch on 15th December for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Ubisoft has just announced.

A new trailer, below, also reveals who you'll be playing as in this new Syndicate add-on: Evie Frye, who returns to London some 20 years after the events of the main game.

The trailer also suggests that the Ripper may well be someone Evie - and perhaps players, too - already knows. So who is it? A couple of possibilities spring to mind...

The DLC is the largest part of Syndicate's season pass, although you will also be able to purchase the add-on separately. It appears similar in scope to last year's Dead Kings add-on for Unity, which provided an enjoyable extra few hours in the game's world.

"Syndicate moves Assassin's Creed forward with a solid new adventure, a beautiful London playground and a renewed sense of fun," Eurogamer's lovely Tom Phillips wrote in our Assassin's Creed Syndicate review.

Take a look at the expansion below:
