Dune: Spice Wars Gets a Bunch of New Screenshots

Earlier today, developer Shiro Games and publisher Funcom released a bevy of new screenshots for its upcoming real-time strategy game, Dune: Spice Wars.

Scheduled to arrive on PC later this year, Dune: Spice Wars is based on Frank Herbert’s influential eponymous sci-fi novel. Of course, said novel was later adapted to cinema by David Lynch in 1984 and Denis Villeneuve in 2021.

Specifically, Dune: Spice Wars is all set to be a spiritual successor to Westwood Studios’ 1992 hit, Dune II – which is widely considered to be the original title to help popularise the RTS genre as we see it, to this day. The game will be a 4X RTS experience, which means that it’ll involve gameplay where you have to explore, expand, exploit and exterminate.

Feel free to peruse the newly released screenshots down below:

And for more information about the game, here’s a general overview via Shiro Games:

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.
