Dune Awakening, Funcom’s survival game finally shows gameplay!
Frank Herbert fans will be thrilled to see a bit about Dune Awakening, a survival game from the creators of Conan Exiles.
Dune Awakening is therefore an open-world multiplayer survival game (like Conan Exiles) which takes players to the Arrakis Desert. It is developed by Funcom, known for having exploited the long, wide and across the universe of Conan the Barbarian. We didn’t know much about this one but the Game Awards ceremony was a very good opportunity to see some gameplay.
Dune Awakening finally shows up
If the video lasts only 1 minute 20, it allows you to admire the vast deserts of the planet Arrakis, with many dangers such as sandworms.
An open-ended survival MMO
Survive the perils of the desert and gradually take control of it over a huge, area-free Arrakis that you will share with thousands of other players. Dune: Awakening combines the realism and creativity of survival games with the social interactivity of large-scale persistent multiplayer games to bring you a unique and challenging open-world survival MMO.
Wake the Sleeper
Your story begins on Arrakis, when you find yourself alone in the middle of the desert, on the most dangerous planet in the whole universe. Meet characters from the books and movies, discover new allies and enemies, and use the bonds you have forged with the other inhabitants of Dune to unravel the mystery buried in the desert sands.
Choose your identity
Choose your identity and your abilities, thanks to an extremely complete character creation tool and skills that improve as you use them. Assert your allegiance based on what you wear and become known for your deeds, whether you choose to specialize in one lane or, on the contrary, become a multi-talented jack-of-all-trades.
Planned on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series, there is currently no release date.
