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.”

This is absolutely perfect. One of the things that draws people to the Assassin's Creed series is what amounts to historical tourism. It's cool that this is free to those who already have the game too.
