Norse culture and mythology fans can finally experience an immersive Viking Age experience with the Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour.
Ubisoft's Discovery Tour feature allows them to flex the wealth of knowledge the team behind each Assassin's Creed game had to learn in order to make it true to the time period. Several such tours already exist for other titles, including AC: Odyssey. Typically, these are meant to be educational modes, designed to give players a knowledgeable and immersive experience into the daily life of an individual living in that era.
The Viking Age Discovery Tour is, of course, no different.
Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour: Viking Age Now Live
Fans can jump into Discovery Tour: Viking Age right now. It has officially gone live as of 8 a.m. ET (5 a.m. PT) today, Tuesday, Oct. 19. Like other Discovery Tours, this add-on is completely free for users who already own the game.
According to a description taken from a post on Ubisoft's official website, "the new experience was designed with input from historians and archaeologists, and will transform the game’s world into a nonviolent, educational experience." However, instead of just wandering the landscape as part of an audio tour, they'll be placed directly in the boots of major characters throughout the excursion.
Players who complete the tour will have the chance to earn items such as a unique armor set, sword, raven skin, and more.
Players will need Title Update 1.3.2 in order to enter the mode.
