The Discovery Tour will come with 75 guided audio tours so you will feel like you are walking in a museum. What if players start believing that every statue in Ancient Egypt had its breasts covered by shells because of this? And all while learning about the city of Alexandria, the importance of Siwa - Bayek's home, or to go as in-depth as you can here on the Pyramids.

Hardcore Origins players will perhaps get more out of the other main feature included in the update: New Game Plus. It will also be available as a free, standalone application for Windows PC via Ubisoft's Uplay online platform.

Essentially, Discovery Tour takes place in a version of the game world without the combat or story, and focuses more on the historical aspect of the Egyptian setting.

"With the Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt, we give everyone interested in Ancient Egypt the chance to enjoy its beauty and the realisation that video games can be a source of inspiring knowledge", says the game's creative director Jean Guesdon in a statement.

The covered-up statues were spotted by Rock Paper Shotgun, with them contrasting the educational intentions of the Discovery Tour. Interactivity, specific to the world of videogames, is at the heart of the experience, creating strong engagement with the content. Ubisoft has released a new Discovery Tour trailer, which provides a first glimpse at the educational mode in action.

"Assassin's Creed: Origins" is the latest installment in Ubisoft's critically acclaimed franchise.

The game mode itself will also receive a variety of tours from which players can choose, without even bothering on doing it by themselves.
