Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey's walkabout educational modes are free right now


A sharp brain is the sharpest blade

Assassin's Creed Origins had a staggeringly big recreation of Ancient Egypt, a sandbox that was absolutely overwhelming in size. The same goes for Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Ancient Greece but to an even more extreme degree. Odyssey was so incredibly large.

These worlds can feel tough to explore in-game, as the Assassin's Creed formula keeps pulling you in all directions to tick off menial objectives of all types. Sometimes you just wanna breathe and take in the sights, maybe learn a thing or two.

That's why Ubisoft created no-combat Discovery Tour modes for both Origins and Odyssey. Discovery Tour is all about being leisurely and educational. For anyone who wants to learn, this mode has a vast museum-like guided tour component that delves into all aspects of the Greeks and Egyptians. For those who just want to be immersed in the worlds without any pressure, there's the freedom to roam about free of any traditional video game challenges.

Discovery Tour is usually a $20 standalone product (or free for those who already own the base Origins and/or Odyssey games), but Ubisoft is giving them away for free for the next week on PC through Uplay. It's a part of Ubisoft's COVID-19 "learn while staying home"-type initiative, so that students have access to some more educational materials while schools are closed down. Also, this is a permanent thing. Claim one or both Discovery Tours before May 21, and you get to keep them forever. While you're at it, claim Rabbids Coding for free and learn some basic-level programming skills.
