FunCom and Shiro Games announce Dune: Spice Wars is coming out of Early Access this September. It's the first Dune video game in two decades and the first of three Dune games from FunCom. The latter is also working on Dune: Awakening, which will be an open-world survival MMO set in the Dune universe.

Dune: Spice Wars is a 4X RTS game with a cartoonish look. It will be interesting to see if it will become as popular as the Dune games from the 1990s.

Developer Shiro Games and publisher Funcom are proud to reveal that Dune: Spice Wars, the first game set in the Dune universe in two decades, will release out of Early Access in September. In just over one year of Early Access, Shiro Games has released five major updates, massively expanding the game. Get a taste of precious spice in the brand-new Dune: Spice Wars Gamescom trailer.

Dune: Spice Wars lets you lead one of the Great Houses of the Imperium to dominate Arrakis and the flow of spice. Through intrigue, warfare, economy, and spycraft, you will rule the deserts or be buried in them.

Since landing on Arrakis, players have seen the addition of multiplayer, House Corrino, flying units, new buildings, major AI improvements, Conquest scenarios, other community-requested features, and much, much more. Thanks to a passionate community and effective communication, bug fixes, balancing, and quality of life improvements have also arrived with every update.

From the beginning, updates have focused not only on growing the game with new features and content, but also on making it a 4X strategy game which is accessible to people discovering the genre.

As we approach the launch, Shiro founder and CEO Nicolas Cannasse has some words to share: “Our goal was to create an easy to understand yet hard to master, content-rich 4X game that caters to both newcomers and enthusiasts of the genre, fueled by regular updates & our growing community’s feedback & support. We can't wait to see players immerse themselves in the rich game we've crafted together.”
