To quote from [Register or Login to view links] 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."
