It’s been rumoured, but Funcom has finally officially announced Dune: Awakening, an open-world survival MMO for PS5, Xbox Series and PC.
Funcom has announced Dune: Awakening, an open-world survival massively multiplayer online game for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC.
No release date has been announced yet, but we do have an awe-inspiring trailer.
Here’s a brief summary of the game from the developers:
“Dune: Awakening combines the grittiness and creativity of survival games with the social interactivity of large-scale, persistent multiplayer games to create a unique and ambitious Open World Survival MMO.”
“Rise from survival to dominance in a vast and seamless Arrakis shared by thousands of players.”
It seems that the nature of the planet Arrakis will make exploration and gaining and keeping control of the spice, in addition to combat and survival, the core of the game.
Looking at the images and footage, it also seems as if the makers have the rights to Denis Villeneuve’s Dune film(s) in terms of sets and visuals. We are curious to see how it turns out!
