Ubisoft announce new historical discovery mode coming to Assassin’s Creed Origins
Explore Ancient Egypt
Ubisoft has today announced that a new game mode will be coming to Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The new mode called Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt will allow players to explore the diverse landscapes of Ancient Egypt and learn about its rich history from audio guided tours.
In the mode, players will be able to roam the entire interactive 3D recreation of ancient Egypt, free from 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 project, Jean Guesdon, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Origins had this to say:
“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.”
The mode will be free to download for all Assassin’s Creed Origins owners with availability scheduled for early 2018.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is due to be released on October 27, 2017.
