Dire Wolf Digital, the makers behind several digital board games as well as Klong !, are launching Dune: Imperium, a board game based on the license of the film of the same name. In the meantime, the game has a release date: As Asmodee Germany announced, Dune: Imperium will appear in early 2021. The publisher limits the release period to the first quarter of the new year.


Dire Wolf Digital unites worker placement and deck building for Dune: Imperium and wants to knit a concept in which the players themselves determine the tactical approach through their actions: Spin intrigues? Strike with military strength? Or go the diplomatic route? Much is likely to be possible - and more so than expected. For a long time there was no information about a release date in Germany, it was speculated that the board game could appear parallel to the film. Because the strip was recently postponed, that could have had an impact on the board game's release as well. But it doesn't: Asmodee has set the release period for the first quarter of 2021; Dire Wolf himself mentions December 2020 for the basic version and the first quarter for the delivery of the deluxe components.

Council seat or blade? Choose player

In the Dune: Imperium board game, players slip into the roles of various mansions who want to take control of the spice trade. The game adheres closely to the template in terms of story, but also characters or game plots. Dire Wolf, the makers behind the board game, rely on a combination of two mechanisms: worker placement and deck building.

Dune: Imperium is a strategic board game in which players can bet on different individual tactics, also driven by the fact that characters have individual skills. A two-player variant has also been confirmed by Dire Wolf Digital, as has a solo mode.

Asmodee will localize the game for the German-speaking market. Pre-orders are currently not possible, separate information will probably follow shortly. This also applies to the deluxe components - corresponding discussions between Asmodee and Dire Wolf Digital should be ongoing in this regard.
