The trailer for Dune Awakening was shown at The Game Awards, giving MMO fans a first glimpse of how this epic sci-fi game will translate into an RPG format. It’s being developed by the Age of Conan Funcom team, so it’s worth playing!
Whether you’re a fan of the books or the movies, Dune Awakening is sure to be set on a grand scale as the series isn’t known for its fast-paced transition. Keep in mind that the trailer we saw is largely pre-alpha, so things are rough around the edges. However, there’s no doubt that what’s on display is Dune to the core.
This announcement is just a taster of what we’ve seen so far from The Game Awards 2022, so if you’re not up to date yet, we recommend keeping an eye out for new reveals and category winners. Everything we’ve seen so far certainly points to this program offering some excellent games.
Dune Awakening pre-alpha trailer
Here’s the first official look at Dune Awakening from an early-stage game. Not much has been revealed other than the game world and plenty of desert land to create your own.
Now there is much more than just sand here. We also looked at some of the flying vehicles you’ll be able to pilot in the game, as well as an imposing clock figure that is impressive despite its short appearance. How will it play out once players get their hands on this kind of kit and clothing? Well, that remains to be seen.
If you’re a fan of Dune, you’ll definitely want to have this on your radar. With the sequel to last year’s blockbuster epic due out in 2023, next year looks like the perfect time to get into the franchise. If you’ve never taken a look at the franchise, it’s not too late; what has been shown is certainly impressive from a visual point of view.
