Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt is a new educational mode that now allows anyone to discover the full interactive 3D reconstruction of Ancient Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins, without conflict, time constraints or other restrictions. Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt is available tomorrow, February 20, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The Discovery Tour is free to owners of Assassin’s Creed Origins and is available separately for PC via Uplay or Steam for $19.99.

From Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Sand Sea, the Giza Plateau to the Oasis of Fayum, Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt lets visitors discover the rich world of Ancient Egypt or take one of 75 themed tours. These tours were developed by Ubisoft’s creative teams in collaboration with historians and Egyptologists. “With Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, we are giving anyone interested in Ancient Egypt the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this land and realize that video games can be a source of inspirational knowledge,” said Jean Guesdon, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt.

Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt is a unique experience at the intersection of entertainment and education. Interactivity, specific to the video game world, is at the heart of the experience and ensures a strong engagement with the content. This makes Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt a completely new type of edutainment. “We’ve been in touch with teachers since the first Assassin’s Creed game about ten years ago. Many teachers were already using the games in their history classes, but soon realized they needed an easy, accessible, educational tool based on our historical reconstructions,” said Maxime Durand, in-house historian at Ubisoft Montreal. “With Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, visitors visualize and understand thousands of things from Egyptian history in their actual context. As both a game and a teaching tool, it is a unique opportunity for educators to integrate this as part of their history lessons.”
