Shiro Games has released a brand-new update for Dune: Spice Wars, adding long-awaited multiplayer features.
From today (June 20th), you will be able to participate in 2×2 matches or play with up to three other players in a free-for-all mode with any open spots filled with AI-controlled factions.
All multiplayer games – added as part of the game’s Early Access roadmap – can be customised to your preference, including map size, victory conditions, game difficulty, as well as sand, storm, and Sietch activity.
Alongside launching multiplayer modes, Shiro Games has reworked every development tree with a focus on the synergy between factions. The studio also added new political resolutions, regions, events, building illustrations, and new Underworld Headquarter buildings.
According to the patch notes, some of the reworks Shiro Games have made to the game include balance and tweaks to “almost everything” as well as a rework of Harkonnen units, the Wreckers, and the militia aggro system.
The studio also improved AI, placed a faction limit on Fremen Sietches’ buildings, removed spice freighters, and made several additional bug fixes too.
Dune: Spice Wars is available in Steam Early Access now, and you can check out a trailer for the multiplayer update below:
