Ubisoft announces the launch of its Play to Learn program, a program that will allow cultural and educational institutions access to certain video games. Teachers, librarians and other education professionals now have access to four games by registering on the program website.
The first games accessible from the launch of the program are Rabbids Coding!, Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt, Valiant Hearts: The Great War and, finally, Anno 1602: History Edition. Rabbids Codding! is one of the choices since it allows the youngest to learn the basics of programming more easily and in a fun way. The other three games chosen allow players to immerse themselves in the heart of different important historical periods.

(Anno 1602 : History Edition)
Ubisoft therefore offers free access for cultural and educational institutions to a fine selection of PC games created by Ubisoft with interactive educational content related to history, geography, science and technology. Ubisoft also plans to expand the range of games offered by the program in the future.
Video games are a dynamic and interactive way to help players develop skills and acquire knowledge,” explains Mickaël Newton, group manager of In-game sponsorship. “We work, for example, with teachers who use Discovery Tour in the classroom to teach history. The Play to Learn program gives us the ability to go the extra mile and bring a stimulating and innovative learning experience to a wider audience through our games.
