In R.U.S.E., players use their brain as the ultimate weapon, fighting a war of perception, where the ability to deceive and mislead the enemy determines success. A first in a strategy game, R.U.S.E. reinvigorates the genre by using deception to give new-found depth to the game play.

R.U.S.E. is a one-of-a-kind real-time strategy game that allows players to bluff their enemies to lead their nation to victory, controlling 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 IRISZOOM Engine which offers an intuitive interface that allows for smooth, rapid transitions from a birds-eye view of the entire conflict, down into the heat of the battle and vice versa.

The Manhattan Project Pack offers new challenges, including three exclusive multiplayer maps and two additional multiplayer modes. These modes will have an effect on strategy and pace, and will allow you to create nuclear cannons and benefit from accelerated technology evolution.

Details of the multiplayer maps are as follows:

  • Twilight of the Gods, 2 vs. 2
  • Vesuvio, 2 vs. 2
  • Guns and Tulips, 3 vs. 3

The two additional multiplayer modes will be:

  • Nuclear War: All prototypes, factories and upgrades will be unlocked from the beginning. Use them wisely and embark in spectacular battles with your enemies.
  • Total War: You'll start in year 1939 with all the units and the technology of that time. You will then unlock 1942 units and 1945 units step by step. Will you be smart enough to master the unique operations of all these units?

The exact release date of The Manhattan Project PACK for R.U.S.E. will be confirmed soon.
