Rumor: First details on Visceral Games' The Ripper

As you heard this morning, EA’s Visceral Games is working on a game based on the famous 19th century serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Our sources dropped hints about the title to us back in May, and now is a good as time as any to tell you what we've heard about The Ripper.

When you think of Jack the Ripper, you think of a psychopathic serial killer, right? Well, what if everything we knew about Jack was wrong? What if Jack the Ripper was actually a good person, killing to save other people’s lives?

That’s the Jack our sources tell us you're going to meet in The Ripper. He’s a supernatural slayer protecting people from demons, vampires and other evil monsters. And seeing as how this is Visceral Games, don’t expect your typical, "played-out" demons. Instead, imagine a cross between the monsters from Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno. Jack will have an assortment of over-the-top weapons to take on these demons, and we're told gameplay involves a special ability that lets him slow down time, too.

That’s all we know for now, and until EA and Visceral decide to officially unveil the title, it may be a while before we get the official word. It's likely they're trying to space out their promotion, as the team just released Dead Space: Extraction and still have Dante's Inferno on the way. They still haven’t even confirmed Dead Space 2, even though we all know it’s happening.

What do you all think of this potential re-imagining of Jack the Ripper?
