Explore ancient Egypt and Greece.
Ubisoft is continuing its Play Your Part: Play At Home promotion–in which it gave out Assassin’s Creed II among other games–by offering up the Discovery Tour versions of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey for free until next week.
Download the games here. A free Uplay account is required.
Ubisoft describes their Discovery Tours as “interactive museums” that are uninterrupted by combat or quests. You have your choice of potential characters to explore the world with including heavy hitters like Julius Caesar as you explore Egypt.
To experience a tour, simply follow the glowing golden line on the ground. Each station of a tour is marked by a sparkling spot along the line […] At a station, an audio commentary will give you information, as a tour guide in a museum would. You are free to look around or move, the commentary will continue. If you wish, you can get more information matching the audio commentary by pressing the key displayed on the screen.
The mode is completely educational and that causes an ESRB ratings downgrade to T. Normally each of these as a standalone product retails at $19.99 USD / $26.99 CAD. There’s no need to download either, however, if you already have the games they’re based upon: just start the Discovery Tour from the main menu.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is slated to drop this holiday season. No word yet on whether or not it’ll include a Discovery Tour of its own.
