EA developer Visceral Studios is working on a game based upon Jack the Ripper, the famous serial killer of the 19th century. Apparently gamers will be playing as Jack.
Except he's not some prostitute killer but a supernatural slayer, working to rid Londoners of evil beasties like vampires and demons say sources. He'll also have over-the-top weaponry.
No such game has been officially announced by EA yet but Destructoid sources claim we'll be playing a very different Jack The Ripper. Developer Visceral brought us Dead Space and are currently working on Dante's Inferno. Our 'hero' Jack will also be able to slow time down.
If true, is EA about to cross a major line? Providing an 'alternate' history for Jack The Ripper where he's actually a saviour of mankind is... bold, to say the least. Maybe it's a PR stunt?
