London, UK — February 15, 2011 — Today, Ubisoft announced that new downloadable content for R.U.S.E. entitled The Pack of The Rising Sun is now available for PC, for Xbox® 360 on Xbox Live®, and will be available for Playstation® 3 on the PlayStation Network® as of tomorrow, February 16 th 2011.
The Pack of The Rising Sun gives the player the opportunity to command the Japanese Army in both solo and multiplayer modes. Players will be able to enjoy 28 new units and factories in 3 exclusive new operations dedicated to the Imperial Japanese Army – Gold for the Brave, Ostfriesland, and For Honour.
The Japanese faction:
Japan provides an unusual playable faction, combining ingenuity and cheap production costs. Players will have to make the most of half-buried bunkers to lock strategic routes, and use their Dokuritsu Kôhei – flamethrower-equipped units – to flush out their enemies. Also named the “paper tank”, the Ha-Go is a cheap and quick to produce new solution, as well as the upgraded Chi-Ri that will help to gain supremacy through its outstanding firepower. While the famous Zero will dominate the skies, the surprising Shinden will cast its rear-propelled silhouette and four 30mm cannons over the battlefield. And of course, prototypes such as the AOV recon and the Ha-To long range gun will surprise your opponent from afar.
Three exclusive operations:
- Fort Knox: In this fictional challenge, gamers will play with the Kentucky National Guard, protecting the Federal Reserve gold until reinforcements from the 1st Armored Division arrive.
- Ostfriesland: In this challenge, players will lead a Japanese strike force in Germany. Their objective will be to prevent the British XIIth corp. from establishing a bridgehead into their defense line. Gamers will be able to use infantry, artillery, armored forces as well as prototype weapons, but will have a limited aircraft.
- For Honour: in this challenge, take command of a renegade division of the Imperial Air Force who refuse to lay down arms and decide to join the Japanese garrison in a desperate and hopeless fight on the island of Java. All around, US, British and Soviet forces are gathering for the ultimate offensive…
R.U.S.E. was released on September 10 th 2010 on Xbox® 360, Sony Playstation® 3 and PC.
