There's so much mystery surrounding Jack the Ripper, imagaine what could be done with him in an Assassins Creed game.

Think of how he was slaughtering prostitutes. Perhaps they had information that he wanted to keep from the assassins. And it doesn't just have to be prostitutes obviously. Perhaps he was more descrete with other killings. It's your job to hunt him down.

What do you think of Jack the Ripper in an AC game?

I'm disturbed enough to admit it'd be interesting if you were old Springheel Jack, and these were actually Templar's that you were taking out. Like low level leutenents or something

I'm sure Jack the Ripper and Spring Heeled Jack are different, but if you weren't saying there the same then sorry :P just ignore me xD

That idea came to mind as well and though I think it's a good one Ubisoft probably wouldn't allow it as that may be a bit too contraversial.

With that said I've heard Visceral games is planning on making a game where you do play as the Ripper himself.

To be honest, I quite like the idea of Jack the Ripper being the protagonist in the next game. Obviously, the prostitute murders would have to be mixed up a bit to make them justified or whatever. But the idea that his actions gain him a reputation that sticks with him, despite doing what he does for the good of the people is a nice change of pace.

EDIT: Didn't even register that someone had already suggested this. But I agree with Marius_DarkWolf's ideas aswell.

I don't mind victorian england, but we've already had a "Jack the Ripper" forerunner in AC:2 (madman killing prostitutes).

What if they made Jack the Ripper a renegade Templar or and Assassin gone mad or something?

That's a good thought. Alot of the fictional story's of Jack the Ripper often suggest a similair idea. That he was in some kind of elitist cult and had lost his mind.
