A new game set in the Dune universe, Dune Awakening, has been introduced. Missions, dates, platforms… That’s all we know so far.
Gamescom 2022 is in full swing from August 24th to 28th. And I must say that the first day has already brought a lot of surprises. The video game convention didn’t just showcase the Layers of Fears trailer and Forspoken gameplay. It also introduced the next game from the Dune universe: Dune Awakening.
Dune Awakening: what do we know about the new video game in the Dune universe?
With an incredible cast including Timothée Chalamet (Wonka), Zendaya, Oscar Isaac (Moon Knight), Rebecca Ferguson and even Jason Momoa, Dune has made its mark at the box office. The success is such that the first video game Dune: Spice Wars, released in April 2022, already has a significant number of players. But get ready, because the new video game from the universe is going to be a killer!
Dune Awakening will be an open world MMO survival game. Developer Funcom promises to immerse thousands of players on the massive planet Arrakis to be conquered. Then the players will have to: set up camps, defend themselves from sandstorms and survive in the desert. But also: explore this evolving world, collect resources and discover the secrets of places. And like a Dune game without spice controls wouldn’t be one. Players will be able to collect spices thanks to the ships that will need to be protected. Get ready for massive battles on foot, at the controls of a vehicle or in aircraft.
Find it in the “Games” section.
