Ubisoft made an appearance at Sony’s Tokyo Press Conference today to reveal details about the upcoming Jack the Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, along with further information on what players can expect if they choose to buy the full season pass.

The Jack the Ripper add-on is set 20 years after the main game, in 1888, and follows the events of the Autumn of Terror in Whitechapel, during which Jack the Ripper earned a name as one of history’s most infamous serial killers. Players help Inspector Frederick Abberline of Scotland Yard as he tackles the case.

In addition to the new Jack the Ripper missions, players who purchase the season pass will get The Last Maharaja mission pack, a set of ten new missions focused on helping Duleep Singh to reclaim his title of Maharaja, a mission called A Long Night, focused on Jacob helping out a fellow gang member, and the Streets of London gameplay pack, which promises an hour of additional missions and a wealth of new gear and outfits. The season pass also includes two separate equipment packs called the Steampunk and Victorian Legends pack, both of which include new gear and weapons. Finally, season pass holders are set to receive an XP boost unavailable to other players.

Destiny: The Taken King’s Latest Trailer Casts You In Leading Role

You’ve seen a good live action trailer for Destiny: The Taken King. You’ve also probably seen a great one. There have been live streams galore. Now, with the expansion hitting tomorrow, it’s your time to shine.

Bungie and Activision have launched a new piece of the Destiny website called, “The Legend of You.” Enter your PSN ID or Gamertag, pick your character that has reached level 20, and off you go with a trailer designed just for you and your accomplishments.

Don’t fret, Xbox gamers. Just click the box that says PSN in the first step to change it over. It takes a little while for the site to cull your data (longer than the stated 60 seconds as people seem to be flooding it), but the end result features personalized stats that vary based on your play habits.  You can see mine below (though I'm sure yours is far more impressive).

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Gameplay Shows Off Brutal Warhammer 40,000 In Space

about X hours ago from

When we think of Warhammer 40,000, the image often conjured is one of a heavily armored space marine hack through Orks with a chainsword and blasting Eldar with a bolter. While those imposing ground forces fight over the uncountable planets in the Imperium of Man, war is also waged in the depths of space.

Battlfleet Gothic: Armada is a real-time strategy, but it isn’t the click-fest that you’ll get from Starcraft or its ilk. Instead, Tindalos is creating a game that’s cerebral in a different way. 

Each of your ships, which you’ll be able to customize as you progress, has its own abilities and crew. As the they take location-based damage, you’ll lose the facilities with which to execute those skills.

Rock Band 4 Career Is A Choose Your Own Adventure With Fart Jokes

about X hours ago from

Harmonix has detailed how Rock Band 4’s campaign will be structured to give bands choice over who they become in-game. You’ll have the option to make boatloads of cash, stay true your garage band roots, or do some very odd things in the name of your art.

The choices you’ll make start off fairly routine, but open up as you and your band gain more notoriety. You’ll also be able to vote on songs to play during your sets and decide whether or not you want to give the crowd some say (including the option to perform an encore).

Despite all the choices, Harmonix says it has worked hard to make sure there are no “wrong” ones. You might end up with a manager that has a flatulence problem, but the game won’t penalize you for his beef and bean burrito problem. Your choices will shape your band's identity, but there's no way to lose and the game won't make you feel bad for your picks, even if you sell out.
