Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour (2018) is a special mode that uses the worlds created for the main Assassin’s Creed
games to offer an educational exploration experience. It is available both as a free part of the original games and as a standalone purchase.
In Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt
you explore the world of Egypt, free of conflict or gameplay constraints. As you roam freely in the beautiful world of Ptolemaic Egypt you find information about its life, habits and customs by yourself, or let historians and Egyptologists guide you on one of the 75 available historical tours they have curated.
In Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece
you explore the world of Ancient Greece through guided tours curated by historians and classical experts. Discover Ancient Greece’s history as the game’s world evolves into a virtual museum. It includes 30 tours, led by 5 different guide characters - each covering a different theme (Philosophy, Architecture, Daily Life, War, Mythology). You can free-roam the entire map, and by taking tours and visiting sites you unlock more avatars and mounts.Discovery Tour: Viking Age
is set in Britain and Norway, around 870 AD. It sheds light on the Viking era and allows players to discover more about the history and traditions of the time. Designed in close collaboration with historians and archaeologists, this non-violent, interactive learning experience is an engaging deep dive into the Viking Age in ninth-century Norway and England. Certain "discovery sites" in-game will feature images of actual archaeological items from the collections of partnering museums in the UK, France and Denmark.Discovery Tour: History of Baghdad
enables you to discover a sixty-six historical sites, each serving as a portal to valuable insights about the era, divided into five categories: Art & Science; Beliefs and Daily Life; Court Life; Economy; and Government. Each entry has been crafted in collaboration with historians and expert advisors and is illustrated by images carefully selected amongst the collections of eminent museums and institutions worldwide, including The David Collection, the Institut du monde arabe (IMA), The Khalili Collections, and Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design.
The latest of these games (Viking Age) replaces the guided tours with peaceful role-playing and quests to pursue. You step into the shoes of Viking and Anglo-Saxon characters from the time, while living out their stories and adventures and interacting with the world around them.
What’s great about this educational element is that you can still run, climb, jump, ride and fly around the Assassin’s Creed world, only without any danger of violence.
