R.U.S.E. Is A Spectator Sport
Ubisoft's hoping that strategy game R.U.S.E. will be not only fun to play but also fun to watch. Today they discussed the possibility of a replay save feature and eSports promotions.
Their answer on replay, given during a Q&A with fans, was a bit noncommittal. They seem enthusiastic, though. "If you promise us that you will use it to share epic game replays with the community, we may think about itů No seriously, we believe that the ability to replay or share an epic battle is the sacred, inherent right of every strategy game enthusiast on this planet."
When Ubisoft was asked whether they'd try to turn R.U.S.E. into an eSport, they said they'll try to promote events but that ultimately it's up to the gamers to make it popular for multiplayer battles. "We will try to push as much as we can tournaments and events around R.U.S.E. We have a rich 'league' system we would like to develop later on. This game is yours and we count on you to make it live."
Though initially expected next month, R.U.S.E. has been pushed into late 2010/early 2011 by Ubisoft.
