Throughout its existence, one of the most fascinating parts of the Assassin’s Creed series has been the Database, a collection of educational notes on important people, places, and events that updates as you discover them in-game. Assassin’s Creed Origins is taking that concept several steps further with Discovery Tour, a new mode that lets players explore the game’s massive re-creation of Egypt and delve into its history firsthand.
A dedicated mode separate from the main game, Discovery Tour features dozens of guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists. Each focuses on a different subject, including the Great Pyramids, the life of Cleopatra, mummification, and more. Additionally, players will be able to roam the entire game world without constraints or threats, exploring a sprawling landscape that includes Memphis, Alexandria, the Sand Sea, and the Giza Plateau at their own pace.
Discovery Tour will arrive in early 2018 as a free update for Assassin’s Creed Origins, which launches on October 27 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
