Representatives of Shiro Games wrote in an updated section that Dune: Spice Wars will contain not only elements of 4X strategy, but also RTS. We are talking about real-time strategy, but at a reduced pace – the player has the opportunity to interrupt the action or, conversely, to speed it up.

Gameplay Dune: Spice Wars combines the following major components: exploration, territory control, economic growth, combat, politics and espionage. The authors only wanted to implement the basic mechanics of a 4X strategy in their project, which would not distract from the classic RTS gameplay.

At the start of Early Access, there will be 4 factions in Dune: Spice Wars (House Harkonnen and House Atreides have already been confirmed). The fifth faction was scheduled to appear as part of the game’s Early Access phase.

Procedural map generation with many variable parameters (sandworm activity, wind speed and location size) has also been announced for Dune: Spice Wars. Over “rather cartoonish” style that was chosen for the project, representatives of Shiro Games said the following: “Developing a game on a desert planet comes with a number of challenges – even if you stare at sand and rocks for hours, it shouldn’t look boring. We even worked with a desert geologist to create an environment that would be possible on such a planet. The stylized artwork allows for a variety of colors and shapes to keep the environment raw without being boring.”.

Dune: Spice Wars is only announced for PC so far (steam), the updated Steam Q&A section is available at this link.
