New Dune RPG Will Be Available To Pre-Order Next Month

After the cover reveal earlier this year, the RPG world has been abuzz for details on the upcoming tabletop adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune series that’s due to release early next year. Subtitled “Adventures In The Imperium,” the game is being revealed slowly but surely by published Modiphius in order to build excitement from the famously passionate Dune fanbase. While we know that the game will run on the 2d20 system (like JCOM and Star Trek Adventures), many of the other details remain a mystery. Today’s announcement of the pre-order is the most information we’ve gotten, with more info due to be released in the pages of MODIPHIA and at ModCon, the publishers upcoming online convention running December 3-6. Check out the full press release below.

MODIPHIUS ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES DECEMBER 2020 PRE-ORDER DATE FOR DUNE: ADVENTURES IN THE IMPERIUM ROLEPLAYING GAME

London. 24th, November. 

With a pre-order launching the second week of December 2020, the Dune: Adventures in the Imperium roleplaying game challenges you to take control of Arrakis and the power of the spice Melange.

Be the first to set foot on Arrakis. The Dune: Adventures in the Imperium roleplaying game takes you into a far future beyond anything you have imagined, where fear is the mind-killer so be sure to keep your wits about you. The Imperium is a place of deadly duels, feudal politics, and mysterious abilities. Noble houses constantly politic for power, influence, and vengeance in a universe where a blade can change the fortunes of millions. Build your house, carve your place in the universe, and fight for the Imperial throne. Take your characters on a journey through the worlds of the seminal Dune sci-fi book series from Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson, inhabiting elite agents working for noble houses where mentats, swordmasters, spies, Bene Gesserit sisters, devious advisors, or even desert Fremen join together to follow your banner.

Whoever you choose to be, remember that those that control the spice control the universe.

Those who sign up to the Dune tabletop roleplaying game pre-order will be able to claim a PDF preview of the core rulebook before the Spring launch and the pre-order will be available through local retailers as well as the Modiphius webstore.

Bastien Lecouffe-Deharme (Kult, Magic: the Gathering) illustrated the stunning art cover and fans will also have the opportunity to show their allegiance to House Atreides, House Harkonnen, or the Imperial House Corrino with three special collector’s edition covers. To supplement these, you can expect a Gamesmaster screen, journal, and dice set accessories with more releases for 2021 to be announced.
