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.
