If you were looking at the latest Exclusive PlayStation Move tech demo video DualShockers presented and thinking “I would love to know how an RTS like R.U.S.E. would make use of the PS Move” wonder no longer. The developers of the upcoming real-time strategy game have implemented support for the title and the details on how this will improve the game are beginning to surface.First off, players can zoom in and out simply by holding the PS Move controller closer or further out from the television set, bring up a quick menu through a gesture of holding it to the right, all while using the controller as a pointer where traditionally the mouse would do that job. Selecting troops has become easier, navigating menus makes much more sense, and the light-up ball on the end of the PS Move will provide visual feedback in addition to the game’s already existing cues. For example, a red light will indicate enemy troops are being pointed at whereas a green one will let you know … [Read more...] about R.U.S.E. PS Move Features Begin to be Detailed
RPS’s natural state is well documented as a kind of electric bewilderment, but this is surprising even for us. A new sliver of DLC entitled The Rising Sun Pack has just been released for RPS favourite R.U.S.E., adding the Japanese to the game as a brand new faction with 28 new units, plus 3 new Japan-centric Operations (standalone scenarios), one of which sees the Japanese taking on the US National Guard in an assault on Fort Knox. Look, here it is on Steam. I had no idea this was coming. I haven’t even had my morning tea yet. This is horrible. Unless this is some kind of… ruse? No, it’s not a ruse. Full press release after the jump.here, and the official RPS verdict is here.

This December, R.U.S.E. will be inviting us all to come and strum on nukuleles. VG247 has pointed me towards this blog post on the official R.U.S.E. site talking about the upcoming and completely free Manhattan Project Pack, which will add three new multiplayer maps for 2v2 and 3v3 games and two new multiplayer modes, Total War and Nuclear War. Details after the jump. – In “Total War”, the battle starts in 1939 and History advances every ten minutes, unlocking new units and technologies.This sounds fantastic to my R.U.S.E. aficionado ears. The problem I had with 1945 matches was the mass of options available to you right from the start, and 1939 matches started well but their endgame was less interesting. 1942 was a neat balance, but gradually escalating technology levels should be an even more flawless fix. – “Nuclear war” will enable you to produce nuclear Long Tom cannons, with mutual nuclear threat involved. The destructive scope of R.U.S.E. … [Read more...] about A Nuclear Error: R.U.S.E. DLC Next Month
R.U.S.E. videos, but only one of them actually gives you a good idea of how the game plays, so that’s the one I’ve posted it below. The video shows how normal strategy systems of building units and sending them off to die can be combined with the RUSE abilities that the game offers. These change major variables on the field of war, like the fog of war and the morale of the units in question. I’ve spend some time in the beta of this and I’ve enjoyed the slow pace that makes it feel something like a RTS with the personality of a really good boardgame. I’ve got fair hopes for its release in the next couple of months.More R.U.S.E. VideosThanks, IGN. … [Read more...] about R.U.S.E.-News: In Game Footage
