How will resource management be handled?
You can build supply depots to mine for gold and produce money, but resources can only be transferred around the map by supply lines such as a network of roads. You can take advantage of these bottlenecks to intercept trucks and stop them from reaching your enemy. While much of the structures in R.U.S.E. can be broken, roads cannot, but you can use roadblocks to halt your enemies’ progress. The economy level gives you greater control over resources, but you can also access build menus from any level of the game, and at any point on the map.
What are RUSES?
Ruses are various cards that give you a special ability on a chosen sector of the battlefield, such as deploying fake tanks and soldiers that appear real to the enemy. Ruses can be used at only one sector of the map at a time, but you can redeploy them as many times as you wish on other areas.
