You may not care for this Sci-fi franchise, but you’ll likely be aware of the work of Frank Herbert. It led to a TV series and films more recently last year. Let’s explain this upcoming game is based on Frank Herbert’s Dune.
Shiro Games has today released the first gameplay footage of their upcoming real-time strategy game titled Dune Spice Wars. In the video, we see the world of Arrakis and the full user interface. It seems it’s a popular franchise once again with the characters appearing in Fortnite and a comic book adaption.
Dune Spice Wars
Players can rally up villages or have them forced into submission as you start the harvesting spice process. You will be starting small and slowly building up your conquest of Arrakis.
We also see a brief glimpse of the game’s combat which will be crucial. The diplomacy and espionage sides were also briefly shown as well. However, it wouldn’t be Dune without the worms and we get a glimpse of those. The game will launch in early access launch this year. With that in mind hopefully, we see a lot more from the sands of Arrakis in the coming weeks. It may be worth following them on Twitter for regular updates such as the recent gameplay debut.
If the RTS genre isn’t your thing Funcom has another game on development. They have the rights to the franchise on PC and console. So this game is set to be a multiplayer game. To add to that an open-world survival is one at that.
