Ubi's R.U.S.E. to use Windows 7 multitouch

Strategy game among first to exploit touch features

Ubisoft's strategy game, R.U.S.E. will be among the first games to exploit the new multitouch capabilities of Windows 7, it's confirmed.

Ubisoft says it's collaborating closely with Microsoft to deliver "immersive and new experiences" on Windows 7. We imagine it'll work something like the ad video below.

The game, if you're not entirely aware (and we don't blame you if you aren't) is described as "a one-of-a-kind real-time strategy game that allows players to bluff their enemies to lead their nation to victory."

"As a strategy game relying on a clean and intuitive interface built around the zoom, R.U.S.E. was the perfect candidate for Ubisoft to demonstrate how multitouch improves and streamlines the way games are played," says marketing man, John Parkes.
