Assassin’s Creed Origins is out next month and today Ubisoft have revealed a new mode which will be coming as a free update early next year.

The new mode is titled Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt and will let players ree roam the entire interactive 3D recreation of Ancient Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins, free of combat, storyline or time constraints. From Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Great Sand Sea, the Giza plateau to the Faiyum Oasis, players can immerse themselves like never before in the rich history of Ancient Egypt.

Discovery Tour will offer dozens of guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists, each with a focus on a different aspect of Ptolemaic Egypt, such as the Great Pyramids, mummification or the life of Cleopatra. Speaking about the new mode, Jean Guesdon, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Origins stated:

From the beginning the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always explored pivotal moments in history, from the Third Crusade to the Italian Renaissance, and this year Ancient Egypt. It’s a dream come true for us to offer Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, an educational mode built specifically for people to learn more about the incredible history of Ancient Egypt through the interactive experience made possible via a video game.
