Funcom has announced Dune: Awakening, an open world survival MMO within the Dune universe.
Set on the desert planet of Arrakis, Dune Awakening combines “the grittiness and creativity of survival games” with “the social interactivity of large-scale, persistent multiplayer games”. You'll build shelters against sandstorms, maintain your stillsuit, and avoid being devoured by colossal sandworms.
Hunting for Spice Blooms and deploying your harvester will allow you to build up a stock of the valuable resource, but you'll also have to protect it from opportunistic raiders and rival factions. You can even build your own faction through trade, subterfuge, and full on open conflict.
You can check out the first trailer down below. Dune: Awakening is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
