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. just flew off the charts.
If you missed it, here’s the might RPS R.U.S.E. verdict. Spoiler! We like it. And remember, while this might be a Ubisoft game they dropped their DRM for it.
And because I hate it and love it and can’t resist posting it, here’s that first trailer for R.U.S.E.. Lookit these guys Rusing one another.
