On September 10, 2019 the Discovery Tour addon was released for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. This is a specially prepared Ubisoft add-on giving players the ability to travel around Ancient Greece. With it you will learn the whole history of Greece and be able to look at the ongoing wars. This gameplay is educational with neither combat mode nor quests.
Excursions in Discovery Tour
The developers have prepared 5 categories:
- Daily life-9 excursions,
- Politics and philosophy-4 excursions,
- Art and religion-5 excursions,
- Famous buildings of the city 7,
- Battles and wars-5 excursions.
These tours differ in duration, number of stations and, of course, the region. To start the story, you need to go to the first station.
Each station will give you the right dose of information, whether it's a text or a lecture. At each station, you can likely learn more about a given piece of history.
If you do not want to travel the world, you can read all the information about the topic. Just select the menu function "read". The game will show you a list of the information you get at each station.
Map in Discovery Tour
This mode is only available on the map available in the base game, DLC will not be taken into account. If you want, you can navigate through it to get to the story elements.
No need, of course, to walk on the map, if you think it is a little interesting. Just go to the menu and select the story you are interested in, the game will automatically transfer you to the first station.
There are 5 categories of excursions (everyday life, politics, buildings, war and art). On the map, each of them has its own marker. This way, it's easier to choose the stories that interest you. Tours that have already been completed change their designations.
Characters available on the Discovery Tour
Among others, you can travel and learn together with Socrates, Cassandra or a child. The function has no impact on the development of the trip. It is only a cosmetic element. The character can be changed at any time, even in the process of walking.
It is only a cosmetic element. You can't influence it in any way.
