UbiSoft has announced that R.U.S.E. will be getting Asian-themed downloadable content tomorrow, February 16, in the form of the "The Pack of The Rising Su"n, which will add the Japanese and three scenarios. This DLC will be available for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
According to the press release, Japan combines 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 available to the player is the “paper tank”, the Ha-Go, 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.
The infamous Japanese Zeros will dominate the skies, and the Shinden will cast its rear-propelled silhouette and four 30mm cannons over the battlefield. Prototypes of the AOV recon and the Ha-To long range gun will be included.
The three scenarios include:
* 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.
