Dune: Awakening is an open world, survival MMO developed and published by Funcom Games. Dune: Awakening was announced at Gamescom 2022 and was made available for wishlisting on Steam shortly after. Whilst a release date for the game has not been given, it has been announced that the game will be available on PC, Xbox Series X|S and PS5.
Dune: Awakening combines the grittiness and creativity of survival games with the social interactivity oflarge-scale, persistent multiplayer games to create a unique and ambitious Open World Survival MMO.
Dune: Awakening takes place within the world of Dune as built by Frank Herbert, but does not follow the timeline of the book. The game combines open world survival with the large social interaction, allowing players to adapt their gameplay to their style of play. Taking inspiration from survival games such as Valheim, players will need to avoid attracting sandworms, seek shelter from sandstorms, and maintain their water and spice levels to succeed in the harsh desert of Arrakis.
