For those fortunate enough to have or be able to afford a touch display and a copy of Windows 7, Ubisoft RTS R.U.S.E. will bring new meaning to the term "armchair general" thanks to a pretty special feature: multitouch. Hopefully the capabilities perform better than on the recent Japanese TV showcase.
“Making images interactive is at the core of the video game industry, and over the last few years we have been striving to make this interactivity as intuitive and direct as possible," said John Parkes, EMEA marketing director. "Today, thanks to Windows 7 and its full multitouch support, the barrier between the player and the image has been removed: they become one."
With that in mind, check out the new trailer below showing off the new capabilities, featuring a couple of rather well-proportioned creatures for the lady/male-fancying gamers out there -- a good representation of the average RTS player, to be sure.
R.U.S.E. is set to launch Q1 2010.
