SAN FRANCISCO — August 26, 2010 — Today, Ubisoft announced that the Windows PC demo for R.U.S.E ™ is now available for download on Steam. R.U.S.E, a real-time strategy (RTS) game developed by Eugen Systems, is slated for release on Windows PC and all next-gen platforms on September 7, 2010 in the U.S.
The R.U.S.E Windows-based PC demo features a full mission (created specifically for the demo) in which players will lead the U.S. Army in battles against Germany and Italy. Players must combine deceptive strategies and eventually resort to nuclear strikes to achieve victory.
In addition, the R.U.S.E demo will be available for next-gen platforms prior to launch. For the latest information on R.U.S.E, please visit: www.rusegame.com.
R.U.S.E is a one-of-a-kind real-time strategy game that allows players to bluff their enemies in order to lead their nation to victory, controlling and viewing the action using views that range seamlessly from the heart of the battlefield to the full theatre of war. Players will be plunged into the action thanks to the exclusive IRISZOOMTM Engine which offers an intuitive interface that allows for smooth, rapid transitions from a bird’s-eye view of the entire conflict to battlefield views, and vice versa.
R.U.S.E reinvigorates the genre by using deception to give newfound depth to the gameplay. In R.U.S.E, players use their brain as the ultimate weapon, fighting a war of perception and strategy, where the ability to deceive and mislead the enemy will determine a player’s success, a first in a strategy game.
