“When we started saying ‘let’s do Ancient Egypt,’ it was going to be [the entire] country,” explains Ismail. “Ancient Egypt meant many things for us; it meant cities, but also wilderness, and we wanted to show the diversity of this wilderness. And people, as they play the game and get into hours and hours of it, they’re constantly seeing new stuff from the world and the environment.”
