The Discovery Mode of Assassin's Creed Origins could be a very important puzzle piece in the battle for cultural acceptance of the medium videogame. This wonderful DLC is divided into two aspects: Enabling a conflict-free free exploration of the reconstructed Egypt as well as guided tours through individual aspects of life and culture during the Hellenistic period.

This second part not only illustrates the care taken by the developers in their research, but also highlights the possible educational aspect of the medium. Open-World games in particular are based on a simulation space, a hyper-realistic reproduction of events. We do not represent, as the medium of film does, we simulate a reality as completely as possible. This foundation is then supplemented with game mechanics to provide classic challenges we as players are looking for. Ubisoft has removed these classic game mechanics in the Discovery Tour DLC and transformed the simulation space into a virtual, interactive museum by providing further information and a fully recorded narration. The fact that this did not require too much extra work on the part of the developers made it clear how carefully modern video games create credible worlds.

The offered tours are grouped in a very sensible way. In addition to the possibility of traveling directly to the starting points by fast travel, the indication of the time needed to complete the journey is a well thought-out piece of information. One notices that Ubisoft is hoping for a use of the mode in the school or teaching area. In addition to the historical information, there is also occasionally background information that sheds some light on the production process of the game. Among other things, the developers explain that they sometimes had to change the facts for a better gaming experience: For example, the big pyramids of Giza were lifted by several meters so that you can see them from almost everywhere in the gaming world.

The Achievements are absolutely straight forward and should not be a problem. If you listen to each tour, you finish the DLC in about 3 hours. But since you can skip the audio parts, it should be possible for impatient people to finish this DLC in less than an hour.

The Discovery DLC from Assassin's Creed Origins is a mode I've been waiting for a long time. Modern video games require so much research, especially when they reflect historical facts that it is a pity not to present them in such a way. I hope this is just the beginning and that other developers will follow. If there are critics of the medium video game in your family, show them this mode. It illustrates the potential of games beyond the playful factor.

I rate this DLC with 5/5.
