Free guided tours to Ancient Egypt, Greece with Assassin's Creed

Free guided tours to Ancient Egypt, Greece with Assassin's Creed”

Aside from making these fun games, Ubisoft also took advantage of the rich worlds they've built with "Discovery Tours", special educational versions of the game that tell players about the history and setting of some of the newer Assassin's Creed games.

Suppose you haven't played either game, though, and want to dip your toes into the long-running series without dishing out any money. While you're at it, claim Rabbids Coding for free and learn some basic-level programming skills. The Ancient Greece Discovery tour will challenge the player to a quiz at the end of the tour, and they're able to unlock other avatars and mounts through progression in the game.

Described as "a virtual museum with guided tours and historical sites to discover", the mode was available to those who owned the game, but could also be purchased standalone for £12.49.

Once the initial tour is done, players will then have the freedom to roam around the world and explore more things like the habitat of the people and the tasks that they did during the time.

For now though jump into Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.

KitGuru says: What do you think about the Discovery Tour mode?

"Travel throughout 29 regions and uncover hundreds of stations with tours on five different themes: philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war and myths to learn more about history of Ancient Greece".

You can download Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece from Ubisoft's website here. You have one week - from 14 May at 1pmMay at 2pm local time - to play both.

Still, for the next week or so, the it's hard to argue with Discovery Tour's price.

Anything else you should know?

All you'll need is a Uplay account and a PC to experience the tour.
