Unfortunately, the diplomatic aspect of the game is also a bit basic at the moment, as you can only trade with other factions, and the most diplomatic deals are research and trade deals.On the bright side, though, these little interactions aren’t the only way to get your opponents on board Spice Wars† When it comes to competition on Arrakis, Skullduggery is the name of a game that allows for covert and overt social pressure.

For those who want to keep their hands clean, a list of decrees is regularly distributed to the factions, who together vote on which decrees to issue or who will benefit (and suffer) from it.

Dune: Spice Wars Preview – Control The Spice, Control The Planet

The game’s diplomatic aspects are unfortunately also a little barebones at the moment, as the other factions can only really be traded with, and the most diplomatic thing to be traded are research and trade agreements. On the brighter side of things, however, these minor interactions are not the only way to affect an adversary in Spice Wars. Skullduggery is the name of the game when it comes to competition on Arrakis, and the game allows for the flexing of both covert and overt social pressure.
For those wishing to keep their hands clean, periodically a slate of decrees are given to the factions, and together they vote on which to enact or who gets to benefit (and who gets to suffer) from their effects. A faction can use their accrued Authority to punish their rivals as well as benefit themselves. Intelligence is a catch-all term for the currency used in the opposite type of scheming, and it allows the player to “build” missions, the effects of which can be dropped on unsuspecting interlopers at a moment’s notice. The possible inclusion of a few hiccups when coordinating these operations acts as a way to keep the player on their toes.

Early Access can sometimes mean poor quality and dubious reliability, which is why it’s so nice to see that Dune: Spice Wars suffers from none of this. The game ran smoothly and consistently without any issues, and the gameplay is both engaging and foundationally sound. Instead, the biggest issue to be found in Dune: Spice Wars is a general lack of variety, which can get old even if the gameplay is enough to smooth over the issue somewhat. For example, while there is plenty of Dune to explore, there are only a handful of things to be found, and they all have the same effects when investigated. The game’s random events have a similar issue, where they vary a bit more but never have any consequences outside of their immediate effects. To see these smaller events tell more of a story about the political struggle of holding onto Arrakis would go a long way to making them feel more impactful, even if mechanically their effects stayed the same.
Arrakis is an interesting and complex world of political intrigue on a galactic scale, and to see a game try to bring that daunting setting to life is enough to make it worth checking out. While Dune: Spice Wars might not be a perfect realization of this goal just yet, the developers at Shiro Games have a strong base that, much like the factions of Arrakis themselves, could serve to be the beginning of something much more powerful and influential as its development continues.

Dune: Spice Wars will be released into Early Access on April 26th, 2022 on PC. Screen Rant was provided a digital Steam code for the purposes of this review.
