Dune: Spice Wars, the 4X real-time strategy game from Northgard developer Shiro Games and co-publisher Funcom, receives its third major Early Access update today. Shiro Games and Funcom also announce that Dune: Spice Wars is now part of the PC Game Pass. 

A multiplayer mode and the Imperial House Corrino have already appeared in the previous updates. Shiro Games is once again significantly expanding the game by adding a whole new combat dimension with flying units and some other improvements in all aspects of the game.

Dune: Spice Wars as a mix of 4X and RTS

The flying units offer a new level of strategy on the battlefield. Desert power is balanced with air power, with new ship and frigate units able to travel the map without fear of sandworms. While combat dynamics will receive the most extensive changes, they are not the only improvements and new content in the game.

As the newest Dune game, the first in two decades, Dune: Spice Wars tightly blends the themes and deep lore of the universe with the gameplay. In the Air & Sand update, players will see some of these mechanics expanded, such as Spy Missions, Political Resolutions, and all-new Spacing Guild mechanics.

There are also balancing adjustments and updated quests. The UI and multiplayer chat system will also be improved, and new villages and sietches will be added - the list goes on. Players gather information, gain political authority, make plans (and plans within plans) and anticipate those of their enemies. The Spice War continues.

Dune: Spice Wars is available now on PC Game Pass and is currently 20 percent off on Steam. Players can now try the innovative mix of 4X and real-time strategy on the legendary planet Arrakis and play together with or against friends in multiplayer.
