    Like many a brilliant mastermind, the Illusive Man sits quietly orchestrating the fate of the universe while soldiers fight the battle. This character-driven piece showcases the gritty combat skills of the game’s assassins and savages as they fight against the galactic invasion of an alien race bent on destroying humanity.
