De test zal niet beginnen voor december 2001 en zal alleen in het Engels zijn. Het aantal beta testers zal misschien gelimiteerd zijn.1. What kind of game is Dune Generations?

Dune Generations is a real time strategy game in which the main feature is playing via the Internet in a permanent and massive multi-player world. Much more than a simple RTS, Dune Generations offers control over a Dynasty in Frank Herbert's universe.

2. So what is the objective of the game?

Each player is given control of a family which he will guide over time, the aim of the game being to become the most powerful family in the Universe and thus to gain control of THE planet: Arrakis, also known as DUNE.

3. Will there be a ranking system?

Yes, of course. The most powerful families will be ranked and known by all the players. Each month, that is to say 50 years in the game, the most powerful player will receive control over Arrakis. Will he manage to retain his power over this planet? Will he manage to endure the pressure from other players and the Emperor?

4. Are there different types of families? There are three types which offer three different game styles. The player chooses his family type at the beginning of the game.The trader family offers a game more oriented towards commercial strategy and resource management. The soldier family will focus more on military power. As for the third family, the mercenaries, it is mainly based on action and battles. A trader player who does not wish to manage his battles can choose to approach a mercenary player and pay him to defend his interests.Iedereen die geïnteresseerd is doet er goed aan om snel naar de officële website te surfen om daar het formuliertje in te vullen.
