Dune Is Getting An Open-World MMO

Posted on

Dune: Jagran was announced today during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event. While details about the game are scant, the trailer revealed that it is an open-world MMO, and a beta sign-up is available now.

The trailer tells us little or nothing about the game. It shows a character staring at a vast desert while the narrative is poetic about overcoming fear. Then, a giant sandworm emerges from the ground below, and our character jumps down to face the giant beast. Check out the trailer below:

Although the trailer didn’t reveal much, a press release distributed after the fact did. Here’s what it had to say:

Dune: The Awakening combines the seriousness and creativity of survival games with the social interactivity of massive, persistent multiplayer games to create a unique and ambitious open world survival MMO. Move from survival to dominance in the vast and uninterrupted Arakis shared by thousands of players.

Head into unmapped areas and be the first to discover secrets and riches before the Coriolis storms once again move the sand and change the landscape. Avoid giant sandworms, build your home from shelter to mighty base, and traverse the dunes in iconic vehicles from the universe.

Hunt for spice blossoms and deploy your harvester, then defend it from rival factions in fast-paced, deadly battles that seamlessly shift from armored groundcars to ornithopters in the sky. Plot your rise to power and build your influence within the Landsraad through careful intrigue.

Dune: Awakening isn’t the only game on the heels of last year’s mega-blockbuster Dune Customization. Back in April, Dune: Spice Wars, a real-time strategy game, was released in Early Access.

Awakening is expected on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
