Ubisoft’s upcoming action-adventure video game, "Assassin's Creed: Origins," will teach gamers the history of Ancient Egypt. The game's Discovery Tour mode will allow players to explore and learn about Egyptian landscapes.

Ubisoft will launch its “Assassin’s Creed: Origins” on October 27 for Windows PC, Xbox One as well as Sony’s PlayStation 4. The video game company will roll out the Discovery Tour mode as a free update in early 2018, according to Engadget.

The mode will turn the game’s map into a friendly museum, with guided tours that will allow “Assassin’s Creed: Origins” players explore into Egyptian history.

Players can visit locations like Memphis, Giza Plateau, and Alexandria that are curated by historians and Egyptologists. Gamers will see individuals working and animals going about their daily activities.

Ubisoft Blog’s post made it known that the Discovery Tour mode of “Assassin’s Creed: Origins” is something that the studio wanted to do for a long time, that the video game company has been asked to do by teachers and institutions. The game’s mode is another way to enjoy the beauty of the world the studio recreated and it’s a more educative mode that will offer actual facts and more academic knowledge to individuals.

Game’s characters

The Discovery Tour mode works by allowing gamers to choose a character, such as protagonists Bayek and Aya.

Players will also have the chance to pick historical figures, including Ptolemy, Caeser, and Cleopatra, among others.

When a player starts a tour, the player will learn what it is about and how long it will take for a player to finish. Players will guide their character through several stations, such as narrated text information regarding distinctive subjects.

However, at a press event earlier this month in San Francisco, a small portion of the Discovery Tour mode was showcased, in which Cleopatra's Greco-Egyptian agent, Aya, stopped at a station and witnessed an Egyptian working on mummification.

Cleopatra’s supremacy

During the event, creative director Jean Guesdon stated that another big mandate for the mode is making it accessible to individuals who might not want to play the action-adventure video game.

However, the forthcoming action-adventure video game is set around the time of Cleopatra’s supremacy. Players of the “Assassin’s Creed Origins” will be an enforcer who will participate in several missions.
