THE DISCOVERY TOUR BY ASSASSIN’S CREED® TRANSFORMS ANCIENT EGYPT INTO AN INTERACTIVE MUSEUM
History Is Everyone’s Playground With This New Educational Tool
SAN FRANCISCO — February 20, 2018 — Ubisoft’s Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt is a new educational tool which lets anyone explore the entire interactive 3D recreation of Ancient Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins free of conflict, time pressure or gameplay constraints. The Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt is now available on PS4, Xbox and PC at no cost for all owners of the Assassin’s Creed Origins game. It is also available independently from the game on PC via the Uplay and Steam platforms for $19.99.
From Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Sand Sea, the Giza plateau to the Faiyum Oasis, the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt lets visitors either explore the rich world of Ancient Egypt at their will or follow the 75 themed tours* devised by Ubisoft’s creative teams in collaboration with history experts and Egyptologists.
“With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, we give the chance to everyone interested in Ancient Egypt to enjoy the beauty of it and realize that video games can be a source of inspiring knowledge” explains Jean Guesdon, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Origins and the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt.
“We’ve been in touch with teachers from the very first instalment of Assassin’s Creed games about ten years back. Many of them already used the games during their history classes but soon came to realize that what they needed was an easily accessible educative tool based in our historical reconstructions,” explains Maxime Durand, Assassin’s Creed Franchise Historian at Ubisoft Montreal. “With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt you can visualize and understand thousands of things from Egyptian history in their actual context. As both a game and a learning tool, it is quite a unique asset for teachers to integrate as part of their history classes.”
Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (4 Hours ago)
This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (4 Hours ago)
It's not really the case where more content is always better. The quality of the content is important. (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Game is fantastic compared to BF4 at launch. (4 Hours ago)
burn-out considering the uneven use. The Q9FN has FALD dimming which, while not quite as good as OLED, gives in practice very good blacks. Worse viewing angle than the C8, but brighter HDR. low lag. (5 Hours ago)
@jmd749: I'm getting the Samsung 65Q9FN in a few weeks. it's the same price as the LG C8. Both have their advantages, but i play so much old games with scanlines that i'm a bit worried about visible.. (5 Hours ago)
The absolute balls on these bastards to charge ridiculous prices for products that aren't even finished. If it were any other industry, they'd be called to account. (7 Hours ago)
