You can check out Salim's performance as Bayek when Assassin's Creed Origins releases on October 27 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Where the Database was a collection of educational (and frequently snarky) notes on the important people, places, and events that you encounter in each game, Discovery Tour adds an entirely new game mode that turns the massive re-creation of Egypt into a combat-free living museum, with guided tours that let players delve into its history firsthand.

In Discovery Mode players can explore all the locations within the game, including the Nile Delta, Giza plateau, and cities of Alexandria and Memphis.

Separate from the main game, Discovery Tour annotates the game world with dozens of interactive tours curated by historians and Egyptologists. Each narration will focus on a different aspect of Ancient Egypt life, such as mummification or the Great Pyramids.

"The world, the 3D world of the game, is really the stage, the receptacle that will bring all the participants, the players, to these tours, that are broken down into stations, so that you can actually learn true things that are already in the world, but this time the focus is about that".

With this new feature, you'll be able to enjoy the environment and learn about ancient Egypt without having to worry about enemies trying to stab you.

Historical facts have always been a part of the Assassin's Creed games and this initiative is an extension of the in-game encyclopedia, which gave information on the game's setting for those who wanted it.

While taking on the role of protagonist Bayek, "Assassin's Creed: Origins" players may find themselves working in the shadows every now and then, carrying out missions while drawing as little attention as possible in the process. It's been rated M for Mature.

Ubisoft it's planning to launch this mode in early 2018.
