Learning addition offers lectures and tours of ancient Egypt

An Assassin's Creed: Origins education mode will be released in early 2018. Absent combat and action, it's being designed to teach students about life in ancient Egypt.

“Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt” is due to be released as a free update for owners of Origins, which will be launched on October 27th for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Assassin's Creed: Origins is set around the time of the reign of Cleopatra. The player is a kind of legal enforcer, who completes various missions as part of an overarching power struggle. Assassin's Creed games are set in different historical periods, including Renaissance Italy, Revolutionary America and Industrial London.

In Discovery Tour, players can travel around the game's open world, visiting locations like Alexandria, Memphis and the Giza Plateau. They'll see people working, and animals going about their lives. Historians and Egyptologists also offer tours, based on their own areas of expertise including the Great Pyramids, mummification and the life of Cleopatra.
