Following the arrival of both House Corrino and multiplayer in recent months, the 4X real-time strategy title that is Dune: Spice Wars is now welcoming its third major Early Access addition in the form of its Air & Sand update.
Shiro Games is hoping for players to explore a new dimension of conquest with the inclusion of new flying units, as well as deploy a host of other improvements and additions across every aspect of the game. At the same time, Dune: Spice Wars will enter new territory with its inclusion on PC Game Pass, opening the gates to a whole new audience.
Flying units add a new layer of strategy to the battlefield, letting players balance desert power with air power using the new Ship and Frigate units, capable of traversing the map without fear of sandworms. While combat may see the biggest changes, the additions and improvements touch on every aspect of the game.
As the most recent Dune game and the first in two decades, Dune: Spice Wars weaves the universe’s deep lore and themes into its gameplay. In the Air & Sand update, players will experience the expansion of several of these mechanics, such as spy missions, political resolutions, and brand-new Spacing Guild mechanics.
Additionally, balancing has been tweaked, quests updated, the UI and multiplayer chat system improved, new village features and Sietches added – the list goes on. Gather intel, garner political authority, make plans within plans within plans, and predict those of your opponents.
Dune: Spice Wars is available on PC game Pass and is now 20% off on Steam. In addition, Funcom also recently announced that they are developing Dune: Awakening, an open-world survival MMO set on Arrakis. The Spice War rages on.
