Assassin's Creed Origins gets conflict-free exploration mode and New Game + tomorrow

Assassin's Creed Origins launched a few months ago and since then Ubisoft has supported the game aggressively with post-launch content. Tomorrow, Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt and New Game + mode will be added to the game.

New Game + is an option that allows players to start a new saved game while keeping their current character progression, once they've completed the main story of the game. All character progression will carry over to New Game +, including equipment, abilities, crafting system, and player level. However, maps, discovered territories, completed quests, and targets will be reset.

Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt is a new educational tool which allows anyone to explore the entire interactive recreation of Ancient Egypt in the game. The mode is free of conflict, time pressure, or gameplay constraints. From Alexandria to Memphis, the Nile Delta to the Sand Sea, the Giza plateau to the Faiyum Oasis, Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt lets visitors either explore the rich world of Ancient Egypt at their will, or follow the 75 themed tours devised by Ubisoft's creative teams in collaboration with experts and Egyptologists. The mode launches on February 20, 2018 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 along with New Game +.

Maxime Durand, the Historian at Ubisoft Montreal, issued the following statement about Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt.

We've been in touch with teachers from the very first installment of Assassin's Creed games. Many of them already used the games during their History classes but soon came to realise that what they needed was an easily accessible educative tool based in our historical reconstructions. With the Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt, you can visualise and understand thousands of things from Egyptian history in their actual context. As both a game and a learning tool, it is quite a unique asset for teachers to integrate as part of their history classes.

Both of these additions will be available at no cost to all owners of Assassin's Creed Origins. However, Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt will also be available independently from the game on PC for a small price.

Assassin's Creed Origins takes place in Ancient Egypt, a land of majesty and intrigue, but one that is disappearing in a ruthless fight for power. You play as a Bayek, the first Assassin, who must unveil dark secrets and forgotten myths as you go back to the one founding moment: the origins of the Assassin's Brotherhood.
