The desert planet (in the original: Dune) penned by Frank Herbert is on everyone’s lips again, not least thanks to the visionary film by Denis Villeneuve. Funcom wants to benefit from this popularity. Not only do you have an online survival game in the pipeline with the German team from Nukklear. At the Game Awards, Dune: Spice Wars was announced, a 4X strategy game that is being developed by the Northgard creators Shiro Games and is to be released on PC.

An exact release date has not yet been announced, but Dune: Spice Wars is set to go into the Early Access phase next year, in which the feedback from the community will be collected and recorded in order to continuously improve the game.

Spice Wars offers numerous playable factions, each with their own strengths and weaknesses and different ways to achieve the ultimate goal: control of the Spice on Arrakis. Players can send agents to sabotage, spy on and assassinate their opponents, they can find political ways to influence the Landsraad and get favorable decisions, amass unbelievable fortunes in order to defeat the other houses through sheer technological and economic superiority – or they can simply seek open war.

Sebastian Vidal, CEO of Shiro Games, is happy about the challenge: “I think I’m speaking for everyone at Shiro Games when I say we’re all huge fans of Dune – both the novel and the new, spectacular film by Denis Villeneuve. That we can bring this universe to life in a strategy game is incredible. The Dune Universe is the perfect setting for a strategy game. There are large factions, like House Atreides and House Harkonnen, with centuries of rivalry. There is political intrigue, betrayal and war, all about the most valuable substance in the universe: Spice. And then there’s the stage itself. Arrakis is a hostile planet full of hidden wonders. Giant sandworms that can devour entire armies, sandstorms, harvesting factories – all of these were built into the game by our great development team. “
