Oslo, Norway – November 28, 2023 – Dune: Spice Wars, the real-time 4X game set on Arrakis, has arrived on Xbox X|S and Xbox Game Pass. Shiro Games and Funcom are excited to provide Xbox players with the first Dune game in over two decades.
Throughout the successful year-long Early Access period on PC, Shiro brought the game six major updates with new factions, features, quality of life improvements, and more, in addition to several community updates responding to player feedback.
This unique fusion of 4X and real-time strategy has now been updated to be played on a TV with a controller, and its updated UI and control scheme are designed to make dominating Arrakis from your sofa a breeze. Scheme and plot your path to victory all while scouting, controlling troops, and expanding your borders in real-time.
The themes and lore of the sci-fi masterpiece by Frank Herbert go far beyond presentation in Dune: Spice Wars, extending deep into its gameplay. To dominate the spice on Arrakis, players must balance spycraft, military might, political acumen, and clever economical decisions, as sandworms, storms, and other factions threaten on all sides.
Play solo or pull friends into a web of plots and shifting powers. Select one of six iconic factions, such as the Atreides, Harkonnen, or Fremen, and learn their strengths and weaknesses.
Dune: Spice Wars is also available with cross-buy functionality, allowing players to seamlessly enjoy the epic strategy experience on both their console and PC when purchased from the Microsoft store.
