Ubisoft gets a Rise out of RTS fans with R.U.S.E.

March 24, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


A new IP blasts its way onto the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 courtesy of publisher Ubisoft and developer Eugen Systems (makers of critically-acclaimed Act of War: Direct Action). R.U.S.E. is RTS-styled and features a Core i7-optimized game engine for all you bleeding-edge PC tech owners out there. Similar in concept to Homeworld or Supreme Commander, the engine allows for wildly-varied levels of zoom and gameplay perspectives, which should be a breath of fresh air into what looks to be the WWII genre, because until now, this type of play has only been possible in a few Sci-Fi titles.

So keep your eye on this one if you’re a fan of RTS and strategy games!
