Faction Guide in Dune Spice Wars
Set to release on the 26th of April, the only information you can get about Dune: Spice Wars is from their Early Access. Data may or may not change when the game is released.
Currently, there are four factions in total: House Harkonnen, House Atreides, the Smugglers, and the Fremens. You can choose one of the four factions to lead and dominate Arrakis planet.
The Harkonnens are a powerhouse known to be feared by their fellow houses. They are well renowned for their clever and nefarious political tactics and the centuries-long historical feud they have maintained with House Atreides.
They maintain a strong reputation on the battlefield as they don’t hesitate to use underhanded tactics to achieve any goal for their cause.
The Atreides’ greatest asset is their unrivaled political power. Their negotiating skills and excellent reputation allow many houses to trust them, giving them more influence.
This faction can use their abilities and reputation to effortlessly bargain with the Fremen, the inhabitants of Arrakis, providing them a significant advantage over other tribes in the race to dominance.
Smugglers, the third faction in Dune: Spice Wars, is a secretive organization with a global reach and a fair degree of political influence. Money and power motivate them.
Wreckers, Snipers, Scavengers, and Combat Drones are among the Smugglers’ units. We still don’t know how these groups perform in combat, so we’ll have to wait until the game’s launch.
The Fremen are Arrakis inhabitants who are not affiliated with any great house or smuggling ring. Instead, they live in perfect symbiosis with the desert planet, planning to transform it into a green Garden of Eden.
They are also known for being fierce fighters. Arrakis is a planet where survival is nearly impossible; therefore, those who survive have trained to fight until their last breath.
