Assassin's Creed Origins is getting a zero-combat education mode next year


Learn all about Egypt without having to kill Cleopatra

Assassin’s Creed Origins will be getting an educational mode in early 2018. The combat and action will be removed so players can learn about life in Ptolemaic Egypt.

The mode is titled “Discovery Tour” and players who own the base game, set to release on October 27, can expect the free update in early 2018.

In Discovery Tour, you’ll have access to the entirety of Origin‘s open world. You’ll see NPCs going about their day as well as animals. There will also be guided tours of things like the Great Pyramids provided by Historians and Egyptologists.

If you would prefer to get learned over getting stabbed, this mode seems right up your alley. Hopefully, this mode becomes a regular thing for futureAssassin’s Creed titles. Fully rendered 3D worlds of historical locations could be a pretty cool way to teach kids. If it were up to me I’d let them in on a bit of the stabbing as well.
