For the first time in twenty years, courtesy of Shiro Games and Funcom, a game in the universe of Dune will make us tread the mythical desert planet with a gameplay that is original, to say the least. The ambition of Dune: Spice Wars is indeed to mix two genres that everything seems to oppose: real-time strategy and 4X.

Several well-known factions from Frank Herbert’s universe will have to fight a large-scale war to control Dune’s precious resource: Spice. Speaking of factions, Shiro Games and Funcom had another surprise to accompany the announcement of the game’s upcoming early access release.

In addition to the Atreides, Harkonnen and Smugglers, the Fremen will join the fight to defend their planet! The promise of radically different gameplay from the other factions from the four corners of the galaxy.

The upcoming release, even in early access, of a Dune strategy game, is already a phenomenon in itself. Now, with Funcom holding the exclusive rights to adapt the license, a multiplayer survival game in the same universe is also planned, this time for both PC and consoles.

Fans of Frank Herbert’s cult universe have a lot to look forward to in the future, starting with Dune: Spice Wars on April 26!
