Red Dead Redemption 2 Jack The Ripper 'DLC trailer' pits Arthur against the serial killer

Red Dead Redemption 2 Jack The Ripper 'DLC trailer' pits Arthur against the serial killer

All killer no filler

Batman versus Superman. Mario versus Sonic. Mick Lynch versus the rail companies. Some fights you wait your whole life to see.

I can say with my hand on my heart that Arthur Morgan versus Jack The Ripper was not one of those fights, but now I've had a taste of it I can't go back.

Take a look at the best Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below!

Despite now being almost five years old now (with no plans for a new-gen update apparently), Red Dead Redemption 2 has aged beautifully. On top of that, the game has had plenty of unofficial support that adds new content and complete graphical overhauls, extending the replayability of a game Rockstar seems to want us to forget.

While Rockstar has no plans to give players any kind of single-player DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2, one fan has come up with an amazing concept: what if Jack the Ripper came to Saint Denis?

I didn't realise, but the timings do actually match up rather well. The monstrous serial killer was active in London around 1888, and Red Dead Redemption 2 takes place a decade later, in 1899. It's perfectly possible the Ripper could have fled London to inflict horror in America. Before coming face-to-face with a certain cowboy, that is. Hell, that's basically the plot of Gotham By Gaslight, if you swap out cowboys for Batman.

Creator Red Dead Dreams explained the trailer was by making use of the Assassin's Creed Syndicate Ripper DLC as its starting point.

"Each and every piece of footage is taken in Red Dead Redemption 2 In Saint Denis City with the help of a cinematic camera mod," they wrote.

"Rockstar games needs to hire you so you can create gaming masterpieces like these! That's how amazing this trailer is," one fan enthusiastically responded. Come on then Rockstar, make it happen!
