Assassin's Creed Origins: Egyptological Impressions

Assassin's Creed Origins sees video-game players visiting ancient Egypt (c.50 BCE). From the desert oases to the city of Alexandria, the Faiyum to the Pyramids, you can now explore a fully-realised version of ancient Egypt.

But how does the game play, and is it historical enough? Today I explore some of the history behind it, and what the game does right.
