Assassin’s Creed Origins Discovery Tour Out Now


Ubisoft made well aware that they were working on Assassin’s Creed Origins Discovery Tour since before the game was released late last year, and today the free update is available across all platforms.

The update, which ranges from 2.6GB (Steam) to ~5.4GB (consoles) should begin automatically the next time you log in to the platform where you own Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Discovery Tour is a non-combat educational simulation allowing you to roam Ancient Egypt without the hassle of being mauled to death by a crocodile or murdered by Romans. It includes 75 interactive guided tours focused on Ancient Egyptian themes such as evisceration and mummification, and of course includes tours of places such as the Pyramids and the Sphynx.

Touted as a useful tool for educational institutions such as schools and tafes, Ubisoft hopes students and teachers can use Assassin’s Creed Origins Discovery Tour in history classrooms to assist lessons about Ancient Egypt.
