RUSE VIP beta starts end of November

No really, it does.

Ubisoft has announced that a VIP extended R.U.S.E. beta will start on 30th November.

This tester taster will be offered to Steam users via codes sent to various website partners, so keep your eyes peeled.

To begin with, the beta will be a fight between R.U.S.E. factions Germany and the US, a bit like the second half of World War II [it's set in World War II you lunatic - Ed]. The UK, USSR, Italy and France will be added later.

R.U.S.E., as the name suggests, allows commanders to bluff their way to victory. It's an RTS with a twist, in other words. Read our hands-on impressions of R.U.S.E. for a more detailed account.

The game's due for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 early next year.
