Players will now get to explore the entirety of Ancient Egypt without any pressure from enemies or time pressure in Assassin’s Creed Origins with the “Discovery Tour” DLC. It will be available for both consoles for free for those who own the base game and on PC separately via Uplay and Steam platforms for £15.99. Egyptologists and history experts will take gamers on a journey across 75 separate tours as you’ll explore such places as Memphis, Alexandria and more. Check out some screenshots below the trailer below to see Cleopatra, an Egyptian household and Pharos.
With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, we give everyone interested in Ancient Egypt the chance to enjoy its beauty and the realisation that video games can be a source of inspiring knowledge.

We’ve been in touch with teachers from the very first instalment of Assassin’s Creed games. Many of them already used the games during their History classes but soon came to realise that what they needed was an easily accessible educative tool based in our historical reconstructions. With the Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt, you can visualise 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.
