Camouflage your troops, lure your opponent with decoy units, sabotage his logistics: strategy is intuitive and carefully thought out at the same time. R.U.S.E. features cutting edge graphics and effects, the outstanding IRISZOOM™ Engine, immersive combat and a simplified interface that allows you to determine your nation’s strategy to defeat your enemies. R.U.S.E. is scheduled for release during Q1 2010 on Windows-based PC, Xbox 360® system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The announcement trailer is worth a thousand words, and will give you a feeling of the spirit of R.U.S.E.’s game mechanics. Dimension Dimension is one of the fundamental aspects of R.U.S.E. The IRISZOOM Engine displays maps a hundred times larger than in traditional RTS games, which makes raises strategy to an unprecedented scale and gives deception a lot more depth. With the zoom, you are able to both command your units as a chief-in-command and manage your troops at a tactical level as a ground officer, for example by deploying a fake offensive on your opponent’s HQ while carefully hiding your infantry in villages to ambush the surrounding tanks. Deception Deception is the essence of R.U.S.E.’s gameplay, just as it is the core of warfare: deception techniques such as espionage, decoys and radio silence played an essential role during World War II and continue to figure in modern conflicts. R.U.S.E. features deception cards – also known as ruses – that let you apply a deception technique to a specific sector in the map. The ruses are split into three categories : - Reveal: these ruses such as the Spy Plan or Decryption are useful in order to understand or uncover your enemy’s actions. - Hide: the Radio Silence or Camouflage Net will let you hide your troops or buildings from your opponent’s radar. - Fake: the last category of ruses is used to trick your enemy, to make him believe what you want him to believe. The Decoy Offensive simulates an attack to confuse your adversary. Multiplayer Because fooling real people is the ultimate thrill, multiplayer plays a critical part in the R.U.S.E. experience. Stay tuned for more details on multiplayer modes and co-op gameplay very soon!
