The game, which is based on Frank Herbert’s cult sci-fi work, is 4X type, referring to the fact that players must explore the territory, ensure the expansion of their civilization, exploit resources and exterminate their enemies.
However, unlike other flagship 4X-type series, such as Civilization Where Humankind, Dune: Spice Wars will not operate on a round system.
It will therefore be possible to appropriate the immense desert of Arrakis in real time.
Politics and diplomatic relations also seem to be an integral part of the game. Players can therefore bet on forming alliances with influential partners, or even declaring war on them.
Dune: Spice Wars will be available in restricted access on Steam this spring.
