Ubisoft's Dawn of Discovery takes place in the year 1404, when king
George's land is suffering from droughts and famine. The king calls on
his two sons, William and Edward, to acquire new territories in order to
produce enough goods to satisfy the needs of his empire's inhabitants.
Whereas Edward suggests aggressive means to collect the badly needed
resources, while his William suggests a peaceful solution, to explore
new and unsettled lands in the south of the kingdom. With the blessing
of his father, William heads south to the Orient and returns with
valuable new technologies such as the water pump that allows dry lands
to be cultivated in order to produce food for the people.
