New Assassins Creed Syndicate Trailer is VR Based

There’s a new trailer available for the Assassins Creed Syndicate Jack the Ripper DLC, where Evie Frye of the main game is tasked with putting an end to the serial killer that plagued London streets in the late 1880’s. In the new trailer, players are free to look around and spin the camera in any view they want, offering a full 360 degree experience unseen in modern video game trailers. Ubisoft suggests using a 3D device to view the trailer, such as the Gear VR or the Oculus Rift, and while there certainly is something to be gained from watching it that way, it’s also just as fine to watch it without.

The 360 degree camera in videos is supported by default by YouTube, and has been a creative new way for content creators to publish new and immersive ways to promote their products or projects. This coincides with the recently announced Eagle’s Flight game by Ubisoft, which is also heavily VR inspired. Check out the new trailer below. To take advantage of the 360 degree camera, just click anywhere in the video during play, and move the mouse. The Assassin’s Creed DLC will be available December 15.
