Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Origins Discovery Tours are both free till 5/21

Post by jztemple2 »

Free games: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Origins Discovery Tours are both free, well, till May 21st :wink:
Looking for some free PC games that will help you learn something? Good news – Ubisoft is giving you that chance. The educational Discovery Tour modes for both Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins are now free to keep through the publisher’s Uplay store. The promotions only last for a limited time, so hop to it.

You can head to the Ubisoft giveaways page to claim both Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece and Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt from now until May 21 at 11:00 EDT / 14:00 EDT / 19:00 BST. Once you’ve claimed the games, they will remain in your library forever, so you can partake in the history lessons whenever you want.
The book historian Richard Altick once wrote, “There has always been a popular belief that more than casual attention to books is either a symptom or a cause of madness.”

Uplay seems to be offline right now, I presume as a result of interest in this giveaway.

I'm going to go ahead and assume I'll never need to buy another AssCreed game... they just keep giving them all away for free. Of course, I never got further than halfway through the first one. Pretty sure I'll never catch up with the other sixteen.
“Also, Dude, ‘Sand People’ is not the preferred nomenclature; Tusken Raider, please.”
“Walter, this isn't a guy who built the moisture vaporators, here....”

They're only giving away the Discovery Tours part of the games.

just for some necessary clarification here, these titles are:
Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt transformed into a living museum.

The Discovery Tour allows you to roam freely in the beautiful world of Ptolemaic Egypt. Learn more about its life, habits and customs by yourself, or let historians and Egyptologists guide you on one of the 75 available historical tours they have curated.


Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece

Experience the world of Classical Greece as a living museum.

Travel throughout 29 regions and uncover hundreds of stations with tours on 5 different themes: philosophy, famous cities, daily life, war and myths to learn more about history of Ancient Greece.
these reuse the engines of AssCreed:Origins and AssCreed:Odyssey for these sorta immersive history :happy-wavemulticolor: Edutainment®™ :happy-wavemulticolor: titles
