Ubisoft has released a new cinematic CGI trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Ubisoft has also announced that a new game mode is coming to the game, called Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, in which players can explore the diverse landscapes of Ancient Egypt and learn about its rich history from audio guided tours.
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.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is currently planned for an October 27th release. The Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt mode will be launched in early 2018.
