Assassin's Creed Odyssey is to get a Discovery Tour mode. The feature will be called Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece (or to give it its full title, Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Greece) and will launch for the game in fall this year.
Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece follows on from the Discovery Tour mode featured in Assassin's Creed Origins. The mode will allow you to explore the world of Assassin's Creed Odyssey without worrying about combat or "gameplay constraints", according to Ubisoft. It's intended as an educational mode to teach you about Ancient Greece. If you're on the fence about whether you want something like this, it'll be a free update, so it won't cost you anything to check it out.
Ubisoft says Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece will keep all the features fans loved about Assassin's Creed Origins' Discovery Tour. While exploring Ancient Greece, you'll learn about the history of ancient landmarks, the day-to-day activities of common people, and the lives of notable figures in history. You'll be able to travel throughout the game's 29 regions to over 300 stations. There will be five different tour themes available: philosophy, architecture, daily life, war, and myths. Each tour will examine the Ancient Greece of Assassin's Creed Odyssey through one of these lenses. According to Ubisoft, the game features "the most accurate 3D interactive reconstruction of Ancient Greece ever made".
Unlike Assassin's Creed Origins' Discovery Tour mode, Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece will quiz players at the end of each tour. This quiz system will be based on Assassin's Creed Odyssey's dialogue trees. Ubisoft is also promising "new and exciting features that allow players to learn the way they want". We're not sure exactly what that means yet. Stay tuned for more info on this feature as we get it.
Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece will launch for Assassin's Creed Odyssey across all platforms in early fall 2019. It'll be a free update for all Assassin's Creed Odyssey owners.
