Level Infinite and Shiro Games announced that its 4x strategy game Dune: Spice Wars based on the universe created by Frank Herbert, will finally be leaving access after almost a year and a half later this September.
The game’s release announcement was shown through a new 1.0 release date trailer showing the game in its completed state, no longer being considered beta footage by the developers.
Players take command of their own regime found on Arrakis with the goal of expanding their own faction to riches and glory against AI or other players, using a mix of diplomacy, resource management, subterfuge, sabotage, and intelligence gathering to take control of the regions and come out on top.

▍About Dune: Spice Wars
Experience the unique Dune universe, one of the most influential sci-fi settings ever created. Lead your faction to victory with iconic characters, such as Duke Leto Atreides, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV, Esmar Tuek, and Liet Kynes. Stay alert as opposing factions seek to gain the upper hand and the planet itself is threatened with vast deserts, huge storms, and the dreaded sandworms.
Crush your opponents using a network of spies and intelligence networks, best them through political trades and misdirection, or go the more direct route by creating the biggest army on the planet and asserting your dominance.
The game can either be played solo by yourself against AI, or in 2v2 matches and free-for-all with up to four players. Players can also customize the parameters of each map, setting up unique scenarios and varying ai difficulties, as well as the behavior of hazards like the deadly sandworm, storms, and other hazards that can threaten your faction, or perhaps give you the edge if you are prepared.
