The Discovery Tour, which will launch this month as a free DLC for Assassin’s Creed Origins players will transform ancient Egypt into an interactive museum.
It will launch on February 27th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. As mentioned, it’ll be free for all those who own AC Origins whilst you can purchase it standalone for £15.99 via the Uplay and Steam platform. It gives you complete freedom to explore, without gameplay restraints.
You’ll be able to see Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Sand Sea, the Giza plateau to the Faiyum Oasis. You can explore as you will or follow the 75 themed tours devised by Ubisoft’s creative teams in collaboration with History experts and Egyptologists. Jean Guesdon, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Origins and the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt stated:
With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, we give everyone interested in Ancient Egypt the chance to enjoy its beauty and the realisation that video games can be a source of inspiring knowledge
Maxime Durand, in-house Historian at Ubisoft Montreal also added:
We’ve been in touch with teachers from the very first instalment of Assassin’s Creed games. Many of them already used the games during their History classes but soon came to realise that what they needed was an easily accessible educative tool based in our historical reconstructions. With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, you can visualise and understand thousands of things from Egyptian history in their actual context. As both a game and a learning tool, it is quite a unique asset for teachers to integrate as part of their history classes.
