From the developers at Westwood Studios comes Dune 2000, a real-time strategy game. Throughout the planet of Arrakis (a desert-like planet riddled with dunes and sand), three military powers have engaged in a fierce war to control a prized resource known as the Spice Melange. The mysterious spice can only be found on the planet of Arrakis; every race in the known universe lusts for its power. With all the bickering and fighting over Spice Melange, the Emperor has issued a challenge that basically states whoever controls the substance will control Arrakis. The three aforementioned forces include the noble House Atreides, the wicked House Harkonnen, and the enigmatic House Ordos. Each house desires control, but each has different reasons for entering the war.
After selecting the house of your liking, a commander will give you a military briefing and objective. You'll begin by constructing a series of battle units, important housing structures (walls, construction yards, barracks, outposts), and vehicles; this is vital in order to meet the mission objectives. You'll start the scenario with a power supply for building a Spice Melange refinery to generate money. Afterwards, it's up to you to build a fully operational base. Upon completion of the necessary structures, it's time to attack your opposition! You'll command and control a wide variety of light infantry soldiers, troopers, and saboteurs.
Dune 2000 includes over 40 missions and supports head-to-head combat via Internet and LAN.
