'R.U.S.E.' (ALL) Adds PlayStation Move Compatibility

R.U.S.E. is a strategy game in which the 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.

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.

Following the massive feedback we got from the community during the Public Beta, we have decided to postpone the release of the final game to September 2010.

While we understand how disappointing this news will be for many, rest assured that this is the best decision for R.U.S.E. and that this extra time will allow us to implement many of your suggestions and improve the multiplayer experience while polishing the overall game.

The project has been ambitious since the start. The VIP Beta and Public Beta proved to us that we were working in the right direction and bringing something genuinely new and refreshing to the RTS genre. We want to keep that mindset and make sure that every single feature of the game is absolutely top-notch before shipping.

We hope that you understand that decision and will continue supporting the game and the team during that time. You can of course expect us to communicate on the changes and improvements that will happen during the coming weeks. Meanwhile, here is a list of some features currently being improved based on your feedback:

  • The multiplayer menus and filters
  • The unit selection
  • The order assignment
  • The unit behavior and pathfinding
  • The strategic AI behaviour
  • The anti-lag policy and kick system
  • and the game balance of course

Once again, thanks for your massive feedback and support, and stay tuned for more R.U.S.E. !
