Viking Age mode for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Discovery is now available for free and rolling out to UK schools.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has its strengths and weaknesses, but no one can deny that one of its most vital points is the recreation of its world, as is customary in the saga. Ubisoft has been taking advantage of it for a few years to implement the so-called Discovery Tour, a way to learn more about the history of the places we visit and the civilizations of that time.
In the case of its latest Viking instalment, this educational functionality is called Viking Age, and it has been available from this past Tuesday for free to those who have a copy of the game. But it is not only aimed at individual use, and this tool is being used in schools and colleges to encourage interest in history and culture.
While we have seen examples before, we now know that Ubisoft itself is expanding its Discovery Tour to more than 50 schools in the UK. As part of an educational agreement with the Digital Schoolhouse program, the company will provide more than 5,000 Discovery Tour PC codes to 52 schools in the territory.
These copies will not only feature the Valhalla Discovery Tour but will also include past modes, such as those released alongside Origins and Odyssey. The experiences will be integrated into the students’ classes, specifically when content related to culture and historical environments is taught.
Discovery Tour: Viking Age is now available in the latest instalment in the Ubisoft franchise. Thanks to different functions, we will get to know the cultures of 9th century England and Norway in a non-violent way, adopting the roles of various characters of the time and completing some objectives.
Are you ready for a new perspective? Discovery Tour: Viking Age is available now!
