RUSE 'VIP' beta this month

"Limited number" of players to get access via Steam

Ubisoft's announced that a 'VIP' RUSE beta will be available to "selected participants worldwide" later this month.

From November 30 those lucky enough to receive invites to the beta will be able to try out the US and German factions, but the beta will later be updated with four additional sides, new maps and game modes, says Ubi.

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."

The VIP beta will be available for download and installation on Steam. A limited number of codes are being distributed on different "partner websites" worldwide, says Ubisoft. Don't look at us.
