Northgard creator Shiro Games has revealed the first gameplay footage of Dune: Spice Wars. The upcoming real-time strategy game is based on the Dune universe and should be playable as an early access title later this year.

Shiro Games shows the first images of the game in the trailer. As expected, there is a lot of sand to be seen on the planet Arrakis. On this planet you need to secure supplies of precious spice and of course you are not the only one trying this.

For conquering territories, Shiro Games seems to borrow elements from its other rts, Northgard. The planet’s surface can be explored and taken over area by area, pushing your boundaries further and further. You play with factions led by well-known figures from the Dune universe. At this time, Duke Leto of House Atreides and Baron Vladimir of House Harkonnen have been announced.

In addition to managing settlements and units, the game also gets political elements and you can spy on enemies. In addition, the trailer shows that not only do you compete against other factions, but that there are also enemies under the sands of the planet that can wipe your units off the map.

Shiro Games announced Dune: Spice Wars last December, shortly after the new Dune movie came out. The intention is that the game will enter an early access phase later this year, in which the game will be further developed. The game is expected to remain in early access for about a year before an official release.
