Looks like the “big surprise” teased for R.U.S.E. last week is a free preview of the game.

Announced over on Steam, the preview build will be made available for free starting at 2.oopm EST this Friday, July 15, and continuing on into weekend.

Here’s the blurb:

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.

Should this interest you, go ahead and pre-load it through here.

R.U.S.E is slated for release in September for PC and Xbox 360, with Move support included in the PS3 version .
