by Eugen Systems, creators of the critically acclaimed strategy title
Act of War: Direct Action™, R.U.S.E™ is a one-of-a-kind RTS game that
allows players to bluff their enemies to lead their nation to victory,
controlling the action from the heart of the battlefield to the full
theatre of war. Whether you’re camouflaging your troops, luring your
opponent with decoy units or sabotaging his logistics: strategy is
intuitive and carefully thought out at the same time. Dimension
Dimension is one of the fundamental aspects of R.U.S.E. The IRISZOOM
Engine displays maps 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.
