Ubisoft is deploying additional content for its RTS, RUSE, later this month. In a tweet earlier today, the company revealed The Chimera Pack would be available "in a few days."

Kinect Hacks: RUSE with gesture controls

At first, this video appears to show the Xbox 360 RTS R.U.S.E controlled using Kinect, but it's actually a ... clever deception: Evoluce's Wolfgang Herfurtner applied a Kinect interface to the PC version of R.U.S.E., allowing the in-game cursor to be controlled with motions. While there's a...

R.U.S.E. getting free nuke-themed DLC pack

Sad news for R.U.S.E. fans, as Ubisoft has announced it won't be doing any DLC for the game at all. Just kidding! That was, in fact, a ruse -- Ubisoft is releasing a "Manhattan Project Pack" for the real-time strategy title that will add two 2v2 maps, another 3v3 map and two different brand new...

Take-Two's Mafia 2 whacked the competition to hold the top of the UK sales charts for a third week in a row.

Budding warmongers across Europe will likely want to set aside some HDD space for a R.U.S.E. demo, set to assault PSN there on September 1.

RUSE won't use Ubisoft's controversial DRM

Ubisoft's RUSE will not use the publisher's controversial "always on" DRM when the game attempts to make its latest release date in September. Instead, the PC version of RUSE will use Valve's Steamworks API to, as the publisher puts it, "offer the best community experience to players." The game...

For the last time: RUSE to deploy Sept. 7

We understand your apprehension when it comes to trusting in a launch date for RUSE, Ubisoft's oft-delayed WWII-based RTS.
