R.U.S.E. gameplay teaches us the benefits of radio silence

Ubisoft has released the first in-game footage from the recently announced R.U.S.E., the RTS where success and victory is based on successfully making a fool of your opponent, showing the art of radio silence, first of many deceptive tricks players can keep up their sleeves.

The interesting thing to look out for is when the camera pulls far enough from the action on the ground, the player is suddenly in a war room-like place and the action before him on a table as seen in the debut trailer. The transition is smooth and seamless but the question is — is there a point to it beyond the coolness?

The new screenshot below accompanied the video.
