Discovering Viking fantasy is now possible thanks to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the latest installment in the popular Ubisoft saga. Now, as part of their post-launch roadmap, players can now enjoy Discovery Tour: Viking Age for free. As in the case of Origins and Valhalla, this educational modality allows us to explore different aspects of medieval English and Viking culture and geography, but from a different point of view. In addition, this mode can be purchased separately on PC (Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store) at a price of 19.99 euros.
There are no confrontations or conflicts, since it is a kind of guided tour: “Developed in close collaboration with historians and archaeologists, this interactive, combat-free learning experience is an engaging way to delve into 9th century England and Norway, ”the press release reads.
A change in its mechanics
On this occasion, Discovery Tour changes its playable formula to exploit its playful and didactic side. Thus, Viking Age “Is based on narrative and history”. The players will embody Viking and Anglo-Saxon characters of the time, through which they will channel their experiences. Interacting with the inhabitants and the world will reveal many details about the culture, anecdotes and historical aspects of this particular period.
After the launch of paid expansions The Wrath of the Druids and The Siege of Paris, Ubisoft Montreal continues to be immersed in the development of new content, both free and premium. In fact, during E3 2021, they revealed that they were working on at least one new expansion, which is still unknown.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla went on sale in November 2020 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC y Google Stadia. Like other Ubisoft titles, if you buy the previous generation version, you can upgrade to the new one for free.
