Straight from the Steam Storefront page:
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.
In R.U.S.E, your brain is your ultimate weapon as you fight a war of perception, where your ability to deceive and mislead your 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 gameplay.
This game is supposed to come out in early 2010, but you can get in on it now by participating in the beta. All you need is a computer that can run it, Steam, and a Fileplanet account (all except the computer are free).
All you have to do is click here, login and enter the Captcha for your code, then go to Ubisoft’s site, redeem it, and wait for your Steam key. It’ll allow you to play until December 23. I’ve got the game and I’m desperately looking for people to have unranked matches against for practice, so go ahead and add Defender0fHyrule to your friends if you’ve got the game, so we can play together. Below is an awesome trailer for the game. It’s free for the beta, so you can only lose time by trying it. DO IT! :P
