UBISOFT ANNOUNCES DISCOVERY TOUR BY ASSASSIN’S CREED®: ANCIENT EGYPT

New Learning Mode Allows Players to Immerse Themselves in the History of Ancient Egypt


SAN FRANCISCO — September 27, 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that a new game mode is coming to Assassin’s Creed® Origins, called Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, which will allow players to explore Ancient Egypt and learn about its history from guided tours. Discovery Tour will be a free update for all Assassin’s Creed Origins owners available in early 2018.

In this dedicated mode, players can free roam the entire interactive 3D recreation of Ancient Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins, free of combat, storyline or time constraints. From Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Great Sand Sea, the Giza plateau to the Faiyum Oasis, players can immerse themselves like never before in the rich history of Ancient Egypt. Discovery Tour will offer dozens of guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists, each with a focus on a different aspect of Ptolemaic Egypt, such as the Great Pyramids, mummification or the life of Cleopatra.

“From the beginning, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always explored pivotal moments in history, from the Third Crusade to the Italian Renaissance, and this year Ancient Egypt,” said Jean Guesdon, creative director of Assassin’s Creed Origins. “It’s a dream come true for us to offer Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, an educational mode built specifically for people to learn more about the incredible history of Ancient Egypt through the interactive experience made possible via a video game.”

    jmd749 @KORNdog: I actually like the design, it lends for good ventilation and aesthetically speaking it's in the shape of the Roman numeral for 5, a "V". :P (10 Hours ago)

    KORNdog I would honestly be surprised if both the next Xbox and ps5 don't just look like simple black plastic boxes. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I can't imagine Sony coming along 10 years too late and adopting that styling when it's clearly not what is considered good design anymore. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I just look at Sony's consumer design and it doesn't fit at all. Electronics are about clean lines and boxy shapes. Even in the PC space that fuck ugly vent covered alien ware design has fizzled out. (1 Day ago)
