Update: Ubisoft announce that The Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece is out now and available for free to all Assassin's Creed Odyssey owners. As we mentioned below, the Discovery Tour allows players to explore the world of Ancient Greece "as a living museum, free of conflict and gameplay restraints". Players will meet with familiar faces as characters such as Leonidas, Herodotus, Sokrates, Perikles, and perhaps even Aspasia will return in the Tour. There will be 30 tours, with optional quizzes and the chance to earn mounts and avatars. The tours cover five themes:

Original Story:The Discovery Tour for Assassin's Creed Odyssey will launch next week, on September 10th.
AC fans will know how beautiful each game's world is, and Odyssey is no exception. The biggest AC game to date, it has countless different spots and locations to explore, from palaces and city centres to crumbling statues of the gods buried in the woods. Its temples in particular are exquisitely designed with gold leaf and colourful murals. The only problem is that it's hard to get a good look when you're being chased by guards, bandits, wolves, bears, or in some cases, particularly aggressive chickens. Something about Kassandra and Alexios's misthios natures clashes with the player's urge to stop and gaze at these beautiful places; get too close and you'll hear the familiar "don't take another step, misthios". The Discovery Tour for Odyssey which arrives next week is the answer to these problems. It features guided tours and information provided by professional historians, and, by removing the combat and urgency of normal gameplay, it allows the player to take in their surroundings peacefully. The Tours' five themes cover a range of interests; philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war, and myths.
There's also options for players that might want something to work towards. The Discovery Tour covers 29 regions in more than 300 stations, and the new features mean that players can progress through objectives to unlock 35 different avatars and 15 mounts. Players can also choose to freely roam the open world if they don't feel like a guided tour. Finally, there'll be quizzes at the end of each tour, similar to the dialogue choice in the game. Perhaps this will test what players have learnt during their gameplay as well as their tours. The Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece comes out next week, September 10th.
