Ubisoft has released Discovery Tour: Viking Age, an educational game built around the research and content that Ubisoft created for their viking adventure Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Discovery Tour: Viking Age is free for all AC Valhalla players across all its release platforms, or available standalone on PC for £16.99 – the standalone release for other platforms will come in 2022.

Following in the footsteps of Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt and Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece, this is another exploration of a historical age. Players will be able to delve into the history, traditions and some of the famous stories from the Viking and Anglo-Saxon worlds. All of this has stemmed from the research that Ubisoft’s developers did in order to craft AC Valhalla.

Unlike its forebears, Discovery Tour: Viking Age puts a greater focus on creating a narrative and having it be interactive. You have “History through stories” and “Learning by doing”, which take you through eight quests and has you embody Viking and Anglo-Saxon characters as they journey through the 9th century. You’ll visit Norway, England, and even step into the mythical realms of Jotunheim and Asgard to explore Norse mythology.

Additionally, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fans will have 11 rewards to unlock for the main game, have 25 behind-the-scenes stations to dig into the making of the game, and 24 exploration characters.

As Ubisoft considers these games to be educational tools that could potentially be used in schools, they are creating a curriculum in partnership with the Montréal McGill University to help guide those unfamiliar with games through certain activities and lesson plans. This is currently only available for Discovery Tour: Ancient Greece – head here to see it – but expect to see this start to include the other Discovery Tours soon.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was a cracking game for the jump between console generations. In our Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review, Jim said

“Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla effortlessly plants its banner as the best open world RPG available for the new consoles. This Viking epic flexes its gore-soaked, tattooed muscles when it comes to world-building, and medieval England wows with its enchanting untamed vistas. It’s also portioned out at a steady pace and, if not for the repetitive, limited combat, Valhalla could have ranked even higher among our favourite games in the series.”
