The developers from Ubisoft have announced that Discovery Tour: Viking Age will be launching on October 19th as a free add-on for those who own Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and as a standalone purchase on PC via Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store.
This new experience was designed with input from historians and archaeologists, and will transform the game’s world into a nonviolent, educational experience that players can freely explore to learn more about the places, people, and cultures of ninth-century England and Norway.
However, unlike the previous entries in the series, Viking Age will take a new approach to how players will explore history: instead of embarking on guided tours, they will assume the roles of different characters and take on quests, which aim to bring them closer to the material by putting them at the center of it.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players can access the new mode for free starting October 19 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Amazon Luna, and Stadia. PC players can also purchase it as a standalone game via Ubisoft Connect or Epic Games Store on October 19, and on Stadia, Amazon Luna, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S in early 2022.
