Welcome back to Planet Arrakis! The desert is calling, because Dune Spice Wars will now be available for Xbox Game Pass too. Many players are still wondering if the game will include a multiplayer mode.
Xbox announced at Paris Games Week 2022 yesterday that Dune: Spice Wars is going to be available for their Game Pass. “Soon” subscribers of the service will have the possibility to get back into the red dust.
How is the gameplay?
The 4X real-time strategy game, developed by the creators of the fan and critically acclaimed Northgard, is about the struggle of different factions for supremacy on the harsh desert planet Arrakis. The title is still in the late Early Access phase, but it already makes a very good impression. See for yourself in the official Trailer from Xbox:
Does Dune Spice Wars have multiplayer?
In June, the developer Shiro Games released a major update that added numerous new features – including a multiplayer mode for peer-to-peer connections and dedicated servers. Now you can engage in epic battles in the desert and compete in 2v2 matches. In the free-for-all mode, even with up to four players. If you’ve got no foes or friends around, you can, of course, also play against AI-controlled factions, and the difficulty can be set from Easy to Insane. Which faction will you lead: The Harkonnen, Fremen, Atreides, or Smugglers?
An exact release date is not yet known. But at least it is certain that the title will be released “soon” and thus certainly for Xbox Game Pass. We can be curious. In case you don’t want to wait for the release via Game Pass, you can grab the game on Steam via this link.
