The Discovery Tour by Assassin's Creed: Ancient Egypt takes us on a walking tour round the world of Assassin's Creed Origins, but it turns out that not everything makes it through as it appears in Origins, as Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that all the nude statues have been censored using seashells. It's not just the assassinating and violence that has been cut out then.

Since this was first reported, though, Polygon reached out to Ubisoft about the decision, and got the following response back:

"Discovery Tour was created to offer the maximum amount of people from various ages and cultural backgrounds the ability to visit the long lost world of Ancient Egypt and learn about its history. We worked hand in hand with educators and academic institutions to tailor the content to be suited for every audience, including younger students, taking into account cultural sensitivities that can be different from one country to another."
