Polygon publishes the exclusive update on our upcoming tabletop role-playing game for the seminal sci-fi franchise Dune from Modiphius Entertainment.
The British developer and publisher excels at licensed tabletop games, including Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Star Trek Adventures, and upcoming pen-and-paper RPGs based on the Dishonored and Homeworld franchises. Now it’s working with the Herbert estate and Legendary Pictures on Dune: Adventures in the Imperium.
The game will be based on Modiphius’ 2d20 system, challenging players to join one of the Major Houses of the Landsraad or create their own House within the Padishah Imperium.
The related licensing agreement was brokered by Genuine Entertainment, which is managing the master tabletop gaming license in partnership with Legendary and Gale Force Nine CEO John-Paul Brisigotti.
Modiphius will begin rolling out the Dune RPG series this holiday season and throughout 2021. A beta test is kicking off soon, and interested players can head to the Modiphius website for more details.
