New multiplayer maps and modes are on the way for Ubisoft's recent real time strategy effort, R.U.S.E.

The Manhattan Project Pack includes three exclusive multiplayer maps and two additional multiplayer modes.

In the Nuclear War mode, all prototype factories and upgrades will be unlocked from the beginning, allowing for some particularly explosive show-downs.

Total War, sees you starting in 1939 with all units specific to that era. You'll then unlock 1942 units and 1945 units step by step.

The three new maps are Twilight of the Gods (2 vs. 2), Vesuvio (2 vs. 2) and Guns and Tulips (3 vs. 3).

Ubisoft is clearly getting in the Christmas mood early the Manhattan Project Pack will be free to all when it launches some time in December.

A charm offensive is probably a good idea, mind. Ubisoft's financial report earlier this week revealed that the strategy title had under-performed since its September release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
