Dune: Awakening will give a new look to Dune fans through its gameplay
The trailer of Dune: Awakening was undoubtedly interesting, but it did not reveal much about its gameplay. But we saw the game’s version of Paul Atreides, the protagonist from the Dune books and movies. The character was seen watching a sandworm devour a spice-harvesting vehicle while saying the famous words “fear is the mind-killer.”
Although we could not get much information about the gameplay, the Dune: Awakening Steam page gave us some clues about the gameplay. According to the Steam page, players must build shelters against sandstorms, maintain their stillsuits, and master the old ways of walking in the deserts. Furthermore, during their journey in the deserts, players must save themselves from colossal sandworms dwelling beneath the sand.
The game will be set in the vast world of Arrakis, where players can explore unmapped sectors and be the first to discover the secrets of the lands. Players will also explore biological testing stations, the wreckage of fallen spaceships, and dusty halls of abandoned sketches throughout their journey. Arrakis will have an ever-changing face with Coriolis storms shifting the sands and changing the landscape.
The economy of the game will most likely depend on spice. Players must collect spices and protect it from raiders and rival factions. The game will also feature unique vehicles like ornithopters, which the players can use for various purposes.
