Free Edutainment Is Perfect For These Times
You can now get the Assassin's Creed Discovery Tours free on Uplay as part of the company's "Play Your Part, Play At Home" campaign.
Check out this trailer showcasing the Egyptian tour to understand what Ubisoft is going for here:
The Assassin's Creed games have always had a focus on historical settings as a big part of the worldbuilding. Ubisoft's dedication to historical accuracy is so powerful that its high-quality render of the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral was actually used to help guide the restoration efforts after a devastating fire destroyed much of the building.
Aside from making these fun games, Ubisoft also took advantage of the rich worlds they've built with "Discovery Tours", special educational versions of the game that tell players about the history and setting of some of the newer Assassin's Creed games. These are a fair bit cheaper than the base game, but they're also lacking in the fun, exciting gameplay that the franchise is known for.
Now, you can get two of the Assassin's Creed Discovery Tours free simply by popping on over to Uplay. Ubisoft is releasing these games as part of their effort to give people stuff to do, and these new releases also have the benefit of being educational!
