The whole going outside and doing stuff thing might be a bit restricted at the moment, but Ubisoft has just the tonic in the form of its latest freebies. For one week, it’s giving away Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Origins’ marvellous Discovery Tours, so you can get a bit of roaming done, and put some learning in you too.
Ubisoft’s first Discovery Tour attempt arrived as part of Assassin’s Creed Origins, giving players the opportunity to explore the entirety of the game’s sprawling recreation of Ancient Egypt, albeit without the questing and constant peril.
It’s designed to be an educational tool, offering informative, entertaining museum-style tours of virtual history, as curated and assembled by actual historians. And so successful was that first attempt, Ubisoft did all again for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, opening the doors of virtual Ancient Greece for similarly engrossing, but considerably enhanced meandering.
