Last week we reported on the release date for the Discovery Tour of Ancient Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and now it is here. This is the educational gameplay mode that debuted in Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2018, as we reported at the time. The premise of this mode is to explore the world of Ancient Greece without any conflicts and gameplay constraints. As the player, you are free to roam through Ancient Greece at your own pace. It includes multiple locations along with guided tours through several historical sites. Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece is now available for free.
Ubisoft consulted with historians and classical experts for the development of this mode. There are five tour guides, based on historical characters — Aspasia, Barnabas, Markos, Herodotos, and Leonidas. You will be able to interact with more than 300 stations and 30 guided tours across 29 regions. The tours cover five different themes — philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war, and myths. After the completion of each tour you can test your knowledge with a quiz. Discovery Tour encourages exploration through 35 unique avatars and 15 mounts, which you can access as you progress through the objectives.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey extra content
The update also includes a new episode of The Lost Tales of Greece. It is called Sokrates’ Trial, and players will have a chance to help out an old friend who has been arrested and awaits trial. You’ll have to figure out who is actually behind the arrest. The episode is also free to all owners of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. All you have to do is reach Chapter 5 in the main questline.
Ubisoft also updated the Story Creator Mode, implementing new features and fixing bugs. Quest creators can now start a quest by eliminating a set target. And if you’re looking for some extra loot, Ubisoft also announced a new character pack, The Myrmidon Character Pack, containing a gear set, a mount, and a spear. It will release on Sept. 27. More information is available on the official website.
