EA Files Trademarks for The Ripper, First Details Available
According to the an article on the LATimes, Electronic Arts has filed two trademark registrations for an upcoming video game dubbed The Ripper.
The title is likely to be a Visceral Games' Project, and will be based on the 19th century British serial killer Jack the Ripper.
To quote from Destructoid on some of the game's preliminary details:
"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 experience in The Ripper. He's a supernatural slayer protecting people from demons, vampires and other evil monsters. And seeing as how this is Visceral Studios, 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."
