Five months after arriving on Steam in Early Access, Dune: Spice Wars welcomes its second major update. This brings, for this time, a new faction, House Corrino. This is an empire that has ruled the galaxy for over 10,000 years and the situation on Arrakis forces the Padishah Emperor to intervene using his might to profit from the war.
The Corrino faction is coming to Dune: Spice Wars
Thanks to this new faction, players will be able to enjoy new possibilities in the Arrakis Desert. His bonuses allow him, for example, to gain Hegemony by paying the guild tax, to modify the resolutions of the Landsraad, to have a free building space in the villages or to gain more Authority.
But this major update does not just bring a new faction, as several changes are also made. We list the most important ones below.
- Rework of the Fremen economy, with one less space in each village, and a revised spice harvest management.
- Introduction of the CHOAM market
- New victory condition: Possess more than 50% of CHOAM to win.
- You can buy and sell CHOAM shares.
- Balanced and overhauled Hegemony to make it more relevant in multiplayer
- New Unit: Assassins
- Villages will now have two traits, allowing to harvest various resources
- Well diggers: +5 Water
- Secret Holders: +20% data production, 1 additional data center can be built.
- Burning Youth: +20% Recruitment Office production, 1 additional Recruitment Office can be built.
- Old Soldiers: +1 additional slot for the militia.
Also, many issues have been fixed. You can find all the details on the game’s Steam page. More such updates will be released over the next few months, pending the final release of Dune: Spice Wars.
