Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece Coming To Assassin's Creed Odyssey September 10th
Discovery Tour Mode was a big hit when it was added to Assassin’s Creed Origins, allowing gamers to explore and learn about Egypt, and Ubisoft has continued that dedication to education with the upcoming release of Discover Tour: Ancient Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
I’m a big fan of this initiative as it offers a very hands-on and interactive way to get kids to learn about history. You can sit them down with the controller and let them be guided through the streets or explore and learn on their own. The Ancient Greece tour includes over 300 stations in 29 regions, and explores five themes: philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war, and myths.
Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece releases September 10th, and is a free update for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey owners, or available as a standalone on PC for $26.99 via UPlay.
Here’s the full release:
