Although Dune: Spice Wars has been available to gamers for almost a year and a half, the official launch is taking place today (the exact time, as of yet, is unknown). The strategy game with 4X elements by Shiro Games is leaving Steam's Early Access. A lot of new content has been added to the game since its debut on EA, and there's probably more to come.

Early Access Summary

With the full release of Dune: Spice Wars the developers have decided to summarize all the achievements reached during Early Access. Since April 2022, the game has gained a lot of new content.

  • The devs added multiplayer mode, allowing for 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, and all-out battles.
  • A new (fifth) faction in the form of House Corrino has been added.
  • Devs itroduced Conquest mode, which is the nucleus of a solo campaign. It enables players to complete a series of different scenarios in which our task is to take over the map.

Not to be forgotten are improvements in balance, AI, QoL (quality of life), and much more, as mentioned in Shiro Games' developer diary entry. In total, the developers have released eight major updates, introducing significant new features.

What's next for Dune: Spice Wars?

The developers do not intend to slow down - with the debut of version 1.0 Spice Wars will gain a new faction in the form of House Ecaz, which means new characters, new advisors or unique units. Also announced were general improvements to the game in a number of fields, including a new tutorial and "major system changes."

In addition, from a recent Q&A session conducted by the developers on Reddit we learned that there are plans to bring all factions from the Dune universe into the game, and another update called Heroes of Dune is expected to be free for everyone.

As you can see, a lot has changed since the Early Access launch of Spice Wars, but what hasn't changed is the positive reception of the game on Steam - 81% of all player reviews are positive.
