R.U.S.E. is a real-time strategy video game developed by Eugen Systems and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. R.U.S.E. is a strategy game involving the players using decoys and ruses to trick their enemies into traps. There is one campaign in the game altogether. The campaign takes place from the point of view of Major Joseph Sheridan of the United States Army. A Yale dropout, Sheridan later joined the US Army and then assumed control of the First Armored Division. The game follows Major Sheridan as he battles from Africa to Germany.
Although the player can only play as the United States in the campaign mode, other factions are present in the game and can be played on R.U.S.E. online. The six factions include the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, and the Soviet Union. Each possesses a unique balance of strengths and weaknesses, which allows for more dynamic gameplay. The downloadable content pack adds Japan as a playable faction.
On several websites, there have been faithful R.U.S.E. players who create articles for organized playing, and this has just been brought to the community's attention, so here are some of the sites:

Prometheus's intention was to prolong the war in the Western Front so that the Soviets fighting in the Eastern Front could potentially gain more territory and the secret weapons ("Wunderwaffe") Germany was researching at the time.
