"In the roughly one hour I spent playing this third-person, open-world action game during a demo last week, I did nothing but connive and kill and turn allies into enemies. Sometimes things would play out as I planned them to—I'd target an enemy commander and use my wraith abilities to turn his once-loyal bodyguards into their usurpers.
But my manipulating didn't always go as smoothly. Sometimes my chosen champion would die in battle, either because he was too weak or because I accidentally let him die. Sometimes the warchief target would run off and I'd chase him down a field for longer than I care to admit. A shadow step—a wraith move that teleports you—helps a lot in these cases, but once these guys are committed to running they are committed."
