Hey everyone, it's that time once again for a Battle for Dune update, fresh from Arrakis! As always, we've waited too long to push another one out but better late than never!!
Last year we showed off a teaser for a new game mode on 1st April titled Horde Mode. It was a game mode in the making that we never really clarified if it was a thing or not due to the date posted, as you can now guess, it is actually a thing!
Here's a latest peek at how it's looking;
"Your Great House has gone to finally vanquish one of the other 2 Great Houses fighting furiously for control of the Spice Melange on Arrakis. Meanwhile, The Guild and the Tleilaxu have unleashed their evil plan! All food stores on Arrakis have been poisoned to turn everyone into mindless Contaminators!! You are still on Arrakis when this happens, you are isolated from your Division, your only choice is to survive until reinforcements come, time to fight the Horde!"
You start out in an abandoned village, alone. You suddenly receive a radio transmission from one of your House's higher ranking Officers, explaining to you the situation that everyone is facing, regardless of House. After exploring the ruined buildings for a few minutes you conclude that there is no one and nothing left, just silence and the odd scorpion scuttling about. You start to make your way out of the village, when you receive another incoming transmission, a large swarm of Tleilaxu Contaminators are heading in your direction from all sides!
Upon hearing this, you need to find a good location to begin taking on the first initial wave. Every few minutes new weapons are granted to you via your local House military outpost, trying desperately to help fight off the masses. You need to hold out until help arrives via transport to get you out of there!
Expect to see more of this mode coming up soon!
We're constantly busy getting the game into a better shape day by day, to hit that First Release milestone. Things are a bit rough currently, but we're always making progress in the right direction. Look out for some updates and videos soon!
