Dune: Awakening is “rethinking” survival game fundamentals, according to new interview

Dune: Awakening will take players to the deadly sandworm-infested desert planet of Arrakis, but developer Funcom doesn’t want the survival MMO’s various systems to scare away those who aren’t normally interested in the survival game genre.

New details about the MMO set in Frank Herbert’s sci-fi universe come via a PC Gamer Interview with the creative director of Dune: Awakening, who shares that Funcom is looking at some of the assumptions of the genre and rethinking what survival game systems can look like.
