Jack The Ripper DLC

The Jack the Ripper trailer provides insight into how Ubisoft imagines the future of storytelling through the unique immersion VR provides.

Adrian Lacey, Director of IP Development at Ubisoft Montpelier;

“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, 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.”
