Assassin's Creed Origins: 8 Weirdest Things We Learned Playing Discovery Tour Mode

Published 6 months ago by Andy Farrant

The new Discovery Tour mode in Assassin's Creed Origins makes history fun by letting you clamber all over it while dressed as an Egyptian Pharaoh. At the same time, you might even find yourself learning a thing or two. We certainly did, and in the spirit of historical research we present to you now the eight weirdest things we learned while playing.

For example, Khufu was the pharaoh buried in the Great Pyramid. What's weird about Khufu's final resting place in the Great Pyramid, however, is that, although his coffin has been found, his body remains missing to this day.

The coffin was listed as being empty when it was discovered, and its design indicates that there was once a lid in place. Discovery Tour offers the possibility that the sarcophagus is only a cenotaph in memory of the pharaoh, and was never meant to receive the body.

I, however, am here to posit the alternate theory that Khufu punched his way out of his coffin and now roams the earth menacing people with his good friends Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolfman. You decide which you think is more plausible out of these, the only two possibilities.

Assassin's Creed Origins' Discovery Tour Mode drops as a free update for the main game on the 20th of February. Previously on Outside Xbox: The 6 Coolest Things We've Done So Far in Assassin's Creed Origins
