Het gaat druk worden in het Dune universium. Naast westwood, die druk bezig is met Emperor: Battle for Dune, gaat Dreamcatcher een actie/adventure maken gebasseerd op dit rijke universium van Frank Herbert.

Uit het persbericht is op te maken dat het spel zich afspeeld tijdens van het 1e boek en de speler Paul Atreides mag "besturen". Als Paul moet je Spiceharversters aanvallen, de Freemen organiseren en de smokkelaars en Harkonnen op afstand houden.

THE LEGEND OF DUNE LIVES ON.

In the year 10191, the Houses Atreides and Harkonnen are fighting a bloody battle for control of the sand planet Arrakis (Dune). It's only resource: Spice, giving those who possess it a very long life and greater powers. Two Atreides will survive the all-out massacre organised by Baron Harkonnen with the help of the Emperor: Jessica, the Duke's concubine and Paul, his son and heir to the throne. The Baron now has only one thing on his mind: revenge. The pair successfully escape and find refuge with the Fremen, a native tribe of Arrakis who are nomadic, mysterious and fiercely independent.

Paul spends two years with the Fremen. He must first earn their trust, then demonstrate his courage so that they will recognise him as their Messiah, the one who will bring them true freedom and make Dune a fertile planet.

During these two years, the player takes on the role of Paul. The story line revolves around him and his integration into the very heart of the Fremen tribe. Spies, intrigue and assassination attempts are everyday occurrences for Paul at this time in his life and the atmosphere is clearly felt and perfectly reproduced. To demonstrate his bravery and worth, Paul takes on many missions. He must destroy the Spice smugglers, harass the Harkonnen, sabotage factories, find hiding places for stockpiling Spice, etc. During these missions, he explores all known places on Dune and is able to perfect his fighting techniques, for battle and knife combat, and practise the powers that make him such an exceptional being.

The essence of the game is based on action, but action filled with finesse and discretion. The art of infiltration, of going unnoticed and striking the enemy, stealing plans and information without the enemy noticing...these are the aims of the operations led by the Fremen in preparation for their final attack...and the ultimate fight for Independence.

Afwachten maar wat dit gaat worden, maar alles wat met Dune te maken heeft hou ik in ieder geval in de gaten.
