Ubisoft has released the long-awaited new Discovery Tour for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and it’s had a few changes.

The Discovery Tour was first introduced in 2017s Assassin’s Creed: Origins that lets you explore ancient Egypt to learn about its deep history and mythology. 2018s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey would then get its own Discovery Tour too, this time it was all about ancient Greece and Rome.

So, it’s pretty much been two years in the making and the new Discovery Tour is here with the Viking entry in Ubisoft’s long-running series. However, this Discovery Tour is a little different to what you might be used to.

Like the main campaign of Valhalla, Discovery Tour: Viking Age is set from the year AD 873. The campaign is based upon the Vikings of Norway and Anglo-Saxon England. The previous two Discovery Tours would have the player pretty much exploring the world, approaching educational sections as they please.

However in Valhalla’s Discovery Tour, while you can still explore, it was more of a structured premise, presented with mission-based narrative quests. After watching the Discover Tour: Viking Age, it seems that Ubisoft is going for the fun, while you play approach. Not that previous Discovery Tours weren’t fun, because I love them. But in the Viking Age, it’s a little more subtle.

Discovery Tour: Viking Age will feature a total of 150 historical highlights which will tell the stories of Myths & Legends, Religion & Magic, War & Politics, Daily Life, Science, Art & Culture, and finally Trade & Economy.


Ubisoft says that Discovery Tour: Viking Age will have “creative pillars” called “History Through Stories” and “Learning by Doing”. The press release provided by Ubisoft says: “players will have the opportunity to embody Viking and Anglo-Saxon characters of the time and take part in their adventures set in the ninth century. This narrative takes players through the snowy lands of Norway, the beautiful landscapes of England, and the mythical realms of Jotunheim and Asgard.

Not that I have enough incentive to play the latest Discovery Tour, this expansion will also gift you bonus content and rewards which can be used in the main campaign of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.

The Discovery Tour: Viking Age is available for free for owners of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla at no extra cost. You can even download it as a standalone on PC for £16.99 via Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. The standalone Discovery Tour: Viking Age will also come to consoles in 2022.

In our review of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, we said that if: “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag got together and had a baby, Valhalla would be its love child.
