The Assassin’s Creed Discovery Tour series provides an attractive proposition in allowing folk to use their muscular PCs to explore real history within the elaborately crafted game world environments where the games are set. Previously, we have seen this style of immersive and educational content rolled out for Assassin’s Creed Origins (set mainly in Egypt, around 50BC) and Odyssey (Greece, about 425BC). In those cases the Discovery Tours were released as a sizable but free bonus for game owners, as well as separate downloads for those interested more in the history than gaming, and Ubisoft is following a similar MO with its most recent / current Assassin’s Creed Valhalla game (set around 875AD).

Assassin’s Creed Discovery Tour: Viking Age is being made available from 19th Oct 2021, a little over a month away. As people now expect, it will be free to owners of the main game, as a juicy piece of downloadable content. Owners of the game on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Amazon Luna, and Stadia will have access to this Discovery Tour from that date.

So, what do you get with the new Discovery Tour? You can see a brief overview in the ‘Upcoming Content Recap’ video, embedded above, starting from about 3mins and 25sec in.
