Assassin's Creed


 

If you’re looking forward to Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ version of ancient Egypt but want to explore it without all that pesky gameplay slowing you down, then Ubisoft is answering your prayers.

Discovery Tour will be arriving to Origins in early 2018 in the form of a free update, and it will remove all combat and story while still letting players roam freely around the game’s massive map. This mode will essentially render the map into a gigantic virtual museum, as “guided tours” will teach you the history of ancient Egypt. These tours were created with help from actual historians and sources like London’s National Museum of Antiquities.

Some of the topics you can look forward to learning more about are the Great Pyramids, Cleopatra, and the mummification process. Hey, just because you won’t be slaying foes with swords doesn’t mean Discovery Tour won’t entirely shy away from evisceration.

Assassin’s Creed has always toed the line between historical accuracy and revisionist sci-fi, so it’s nice to see the team at Ubisoft highlighting the facts about the time period on which its basing its upcoming entry. Origins is basing its story around the time that Cleopatra tries to regain the throne from her brother, events which ended the reign of the Ptolemaic dynasty and, in effect, turned Egypt into a Roman province. So, it was a pretty tumultuous time in Egyptian history and should serve to create some juicy political drama as the game’s background.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is launching for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 27th.
