Dune: Spice Wars announced, out next year on for PC

Dune: Spice Wars has been announced for PC and it’s sees Dune return to the real time strategy games that were immensely popular in the 16-bit era.  Check out the trailer.


A real-time strategy game with 4X elements, from the developers of the critically acclaimed Northgard. Set in Frank Herbert’s groundbreaking Dune universe, you must lead your faction and battle for control and dominance over the harsh desert planet of Arrakis.

Spice is the most valuable resource in the universe. The spice extends life, it expands consciousness and makes interstellar travel possible. Create your own story and play as one of several factions, including House Atreides and House Harkonnen, and compete for power over Dune and the spice.

Scan the landscape for wormsign or risk losing your troops and spice harvesters to titanic sandworms who will burst through the sand dunes to swallow and devour them whole. Best your opponents through political intrigue, crush them in combat, and undermine them with your network of illusive spies.

You can find the game on Steam right now and wishlist it.

This is second Dune game to be announced in the past few days. At the start of the month Funcom revealed have brought in developers Nukklear to help create a new open world survival game based on the Dune series. Funcom picked up the license in 2019 and it is said the game will be inspired by another Funcom title, Conan Exiles.

“As the Dune open-world survival game is the most ambitious project we’ve ever undertaken at Funcom, having skilled and reliable partners is an absolute must. With Nukklear we have just that. We’ve benefited particularly from their expertise in vehicular based gameplay, but I know them as highly skilled and creative game developers in general,” said Rui Casais, Funcom CEO.
