New Educational Mode Allows Players of All Ages to be Immersed in the world of Ancient Greece
SAN FRANCISCO — September 10, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece, an educational tool allowing anyone to explore and interact with the history and culture of the Ancient Greek world, is now available. Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece is free for all owners of Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey and is also available independently on PC via Uplay platforms for $19.99.
History is your playground in Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece, where players can take guided tours or freely roam around the rich open world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey free of conflict and gameplay constraints. From the heights of snowy mountain peaks to the depths of the Aegean Sea, players can explore an entire country full of untamed environments and cities during the Golden Age of Greece. From ancient rituals to famed statues, they will come face-to-face with legendary Greek figures and discover the truth behind the myths and legends.
Building on the positive reception from the first edition of Discovery Tour featuring Ancient Egypt, the second edition keeps fan-favorite features like stations showcasing the history of ancient landmarks, geography, day-to-day activities of common people and the lives of history’s most notable figures. Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece allows visitors to travel through 29 regions in over 300 stations with tours featuring five different themes: philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war and myths. It also exhibits new features that allow players to learn the way they want, with 35 unique avatars and 15 mounts that are accessible by progressing through objectives. Players can easily find what they are looking for while going off the beaten path to explore and discover new opportunities.
With Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece, players are encouraged to take their time, enjoy the most accurate 3D interactive reconstruction of Ancient Greece ever made, and take part in immersive guided tours to learn more about this incredible place and time. Based on the dialogue choice system introduced in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece will test each visitor with an engaging, fun and rewarding quiz at the end of each tour.
