We haven’t paid attention to it for a while, but as early as the beginning of 2019, Funcom announced that it was making some dune video games, including open-world multiplayer survival games. Considering Conan Exiles developed by Funcom, this is another multiplayer survival game set in a vast desert environment, which feels very appropriate.
Dune has returned to our sight to a large extent, thank you, you know, dune. movie. Since Funcom first announced the upcoming Dune game, we haven’t heard any real details about the upcoming Dune game, so we decided to speculate on some of the features we would like to see, from sandworms to stationary clothes to the most important spice .
This is what we hope to see in Funcom’s Dune Survival Game. notes: There are some spoiler If you haven’t watched a movie or read a book, check out the dunes below.
Not just desert
I don’t want to annoy any feathers right away, but the desert…a bit boring. Not immediately boring! The desert in the “Dune” movie looks beautiful. But this is a two-hour movie. When playing games for tens or hundreds of hours, it is hard to imagine that you will be fascinated by walking down a sand dune, climbing another sand dune, and seeing… other Damn dunes. Some games, such as Max Max, do a good job of distinguishing desert areas, so each one looks and feels a little different, but in the end you still mainly deal with sand, sand, and more sand.
In addition to the original “Dune” novel, I have not read too many books, but I know that in the distant future of Arrakis, some earth transformation work has been carried out, and parts of the desert planet have become greener than brown. In addition to deserts and caves, there are some additional biomes in the dune game. Some areas with a wide variety of plants and wild animals, as well as familiar arid and desolate areas, will definitely make the world more visually interesting. In addition to the tights that can recycle moisture 24/7, it can also give players the opportunity to wear other clothes. I think setting the game at that point in the sand dune timeline can make it more diverse. ——Chris Livingston, feature film producer
Actual drug use
Dune is a rich world of science fiction, depicting 27 published and upcoming novels (excluding short stories and other works). This is also a book written in San Francisco in the early 1960s, when hippies, counterculture, music, recreational drugs and Summer of Love (67 years) were intertwined. It is undeniable that this atmosphere led Herbert’s book, which is a story centered on the matter that shapes the galaxy and changes the mind.
With this in mind, it would be very disappointing if Spice were just another ordinary video game resource! I don’t want to equip my spice tool and hold F to collect spice. I do not want to purchase a season pass to add 200 Spice to my account. I hope to incorporate this magical mineral into the story and experience of the game itself-if this is a certain type of RPG, using Spice should not be like eating baked potatoes in Minecraft. It should have some richer meanings and realizations. —Evan Lahti, Global Editor
Some very complicated knife fights
Considering that this is a futuristic sci-fi world, it is a bit strange to see people running around with knives and swords.But the heavy swordsmanship is due to the personal defensive shields (they look Stupid In the original Dune movie) prevent anything fast moving from penetrating them. Bullets won’t have much effect, because they just move too fast, and I guess things like laser blasters won’t be effective either. Therefore, warriors carry big knives with them, because even if they open their shields, you can slow them down enough to stab someone.
I hope that the battles in the “Dune” game can demonstrate some knife skills that need to be fast and mastered. with Slow enough to fight effectively. Kill someone with a shield, it won’t cause any harm. A more complex version of the knife battle, including things like parry and counterattack, and all the important slow knives might give the battle a good learning curve and a little nuance. -Chris
Flapping wing aircraft
Maybe it’s my former flight simulator fan talking about it, or my recent experience as a network delivery driver in Cloudpunk. Either way, what I really want is to control the Atreides flapping wing aircraft. I want to transport spice harvesters and patrol for worms, save workers from sandworm hazards, fight the invading Harkonnen and Sardaukar, and perhaps most importantly, just sail through endless drought waste. Is Arrakis a boring place? Maybe—it’s a big desert after all—but it doesn’t have to be: the Freemans have lived there for thousands of years, which opens the door to various potential mysteries. Here is a ruin, there is an old storage room-there are a lot of fictional material to make it work, especially when adapting video games. —Andy Chalk, head of U.S. news
Building system (or nomadic system)
Look, I know one thing about sand dunes: it involves sand. But I do know multiplayer survival games, and I will always, always Appears in the building system. Give me a small crafting workbench and a bunch of occlusal constructions, and I will live there for a few weeks. If one day you all enter a dune multiplayer game and start sending me screenshots of sandcastles or sand sheds or any type of structure inhabited by dune people, I promise you will be there. — Lauren Morton, Associate Editor
I think I might have the opposite feeling, because in games with buildable bases it has proven time and time again that I can’t build the home I really want to live in. I think I would rather be nomad in the dune game. If possible, I only need a tent or portable habitat, I can put it down, sleep or make it, and then fold it up and carry it with me. Especially in a multiplayer game like Rust, players take a place, start to build an ugly boxy base, then abandon it, and the landscape is eventually littered with ugly garbage. Maybe it’s time for the multiplayer survival game to abandon the building and stick to a portable cabin that won’t mess up the scenery. -Chris
I know two things about sand dunes. Like Lauren, I know it involves sand.However, I also know that there are worm In that sand. Big worm. Well, I think you should be able to ride a worm. Let’s call them… sand dune bugs, maybe. Or sand pipe. ——Taylor Wilde, Executive Editor
I’m pretty sure that worm riding will be part of the game (you can do it in the unmanned sky this Halloween), if not, man, people will be angry. Hope this will be some advanced and extremely difficult activity, or people will manipulate worms on the map and eat all the fresh spawns. -Chris
Make me a worm
Human beings are boring and very bad at surviving in harsh deserts. Sandworms are very irritating and are good at surviving in harsh deserts. So why should I be anything other than a worm? Let me quickly cross the sand dunes, devour spices and spaceships, and maybe one or two players. If Taylor tried to ride me, I wouldn’t be very happy. It is forbidden to ride insects. This is rude. –Fraser Brown, online editor
A pee button
Denis Villeneuve’s Dune took a few minutes to introduce us to the stationary suit, which is Arrakis’ high-tech desert suit, which can collect almost all of your body’s moisture and convert it into Drinkable water. Sweat becomes nourishment. But the movie missed one thing: the same goes for peeing.If “Dune” is a survival game, it means that the main mechanic will solve your thirst problem in the desert, and That This means that there should be a button to urinate on command before you finish drinking. Whoever controls his urine, whoever controls the universe.— Wes Fenlon, Senior Editor
Stillsuits will also recycle your poop. On the one hand, I’m not sure if Funcom wants to remind you that you are drinking recycled pee and poop. On the other hand, it is Funcom, which has a dong-sized slider in Conan Exiles. So who knows? They may be happy to remind you that every time you drink from your suit, you are consuming the last desert dump. -Chris
