R.U.S.E. Free This Weekend

Steam News announces this weekend they will offer a free playable preview of R.U.S.E., Ubisoft's upcoming real time strategy game. The free weekend kicks off on Thursday at 2:00 pm EDT, and you can start preloading the game client through this link. Here's word on what to expect:

The Free Preview Weekend of R.U.S.E. will let you play a sizeable slice of the multiplayer, featuring new maps never played before. Play with 2 to 8 players, with any team or free-for-all combination, and with any of the 6 factions available in the final game.

During the Free Weekend, you can also play battles against the medium or hard AI for the first time. Select which nation your opposing AI will play and check out the strengths of each faction. Good luck defeating the hard AI!

In a game really focused on online play I don't really know if the DRM is as bad... it's singleplayer games wanting a persistent connection that is horrible.

True, but I guess for the majority of us it is a general wish to punish Ubisoft for making it more and more disadvantageous to be a customer instead of a pirate.

I played the beta and I thought it was quite good, with more options in the full game it would be a candidate for my buy list. So this is the first game where I'll probably regret that I have to refuse. But well, Victoria 2 is just around the corner and DRM free - guess who gets my money.
