May 2021 - Dune II: The Battle for Arrakis
« on: April 30, 2021, 06:50:49 pm »
OCS/ECS Game of the Month for May 2021, is Dune 2!

As some of us did not get the chance to play Dune in April, we have decided to put up Dune 2 for May!  Let's all put an effort in to play a bit of both!  Enjoy!

Emperor Frederick IV of House Corrino is desperate for the harvesting of the valuable drug melange (also known as "the spice"), found only on the planet Arrakis, to pay off all of his debt incurred on internecine wars with family members. To achieve this, he now offers the sole governorship of Arrakis to whichever of the three Houses (Atreides, Harkonnen, and the non-canon Ordos) delivers the most spice for him. War begins as deputations from all three Houses arrive on Arrakis.

The player is a military commander from a House of their choice. In the first few missions, the objectives are to establish successfully a base on an unoccupied territory of Arrakis, to harvest spice, and to defeat intruders. Later, when the three Houses divide Arrakis among them, the player has to assault and capture enemy territories. When the player dominates Arrakis on the world map, the two other enemy factions ally against their common enemy. The final showdown is the battle between the player's House against three enemy sides, among them Frederick's forces the Sardaukar (an unplayable elite force whose heavy infantry are particularly powerful). The introductory, mission briefing and endgame cutscenes are different for each House, in keeping with their very disparate world views. The weaponry and units also vary from house to house.

DUNE II, perhaps inaccurately, is widely considered to be the first contemporary real-time strategy (RTS) game ever released, and pioneered many concepts and conventions of the RTS genre.
