My admiration for how Ubisoft continues to support Assassin’s Creed Origins, even for players who haven’t invested in the game’s paid expansions, is pretty well documented at this point. But here’s another example as to why I think EA and Activision could take some lessons from their French counterpart.
Sure, all told, the achievements might only add 30 points to your gamerscore, but it still gives players a reason to experience what honestly sounds like one of the most interesting modes Assassin’s Creed has ever introduced to the series.
Here are the achievements (with title, description, and gamerscore):
- First Visit: Complete one tour – 10G
- Archeologist: Complete all tours in the Daily Life category – 10G
- Polymorph: Complete tours with at least five different characters – 10G
Discovery Tour is a free add-on for all players who already own Origins, regardless of whether or not you own the expansion pass. However, PC players who don’t own Origins will be able to purchase a standalone version of Discovery Tour for $19.99.
Following Discovery Tour, Assassin’s Creed Origins players will basically pull a complete 180 with its next (and final) major expansion. Whereas Discovery Tour is all about injecting some historical accuracy back into the series, The Curse of the Pharaohs will pit Bayek against Egypt’s mythological beasts and the mummies of dead pharaohs as he investigates the source of a curse that has brought these creatures into his reality. That launches on March 6th.
Origins‘ first major expansion, The Hidden Ones, released a couple of weeks ago and sees Bayek and the Brotherhood teaming up with Aya to drive occupying Romans out of the Sinai Peninsula.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
