Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Discovery Tour mode, offering an educational galavant around Ancient Greece, will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC as a free update on 10th September.

Discovery Tour mode first appeared as a free update for Assassin's Creed Origins, and was designed to shed light on life in Ancient Egypt, as revealed by real historians through curated in-game tours of the world. Eurogamer's Christian Donlan spoke to the team about the fascinating, educational endeavour back then if you're curious to know more about its goals.

Although Ubisoft hasn't offered much more information about Odyssey's upcoming Discovery Tour mode beyond that September release date, Ubisoft Montreal content director Maxime Durand did share a few early details back at this year's E3.

For instance, Odyssey's Discovery Mode will, as in Origins, enable players to explore the full map without the pressure of quests and combat. There are new features this time too, including enhanced cinematic scenes that really highlight the smaller details being discussed during a tour, and quizzes to see how much history you've successfully managed to hoover up during your educational pursuits - both showcased in the trailer above.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Discovery Tour will be made available to all owners of the game on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in a free update on 10th September. It will also be possible to purchase a separate standalone version of Odyssey, focussed purely on the Discovery Tour.
