Dune, the classic sci-fi novel, recently made its way to the big screen with a big budget movie. With the sandy tale back in the zeitgeist, surely it makes sense to work out a video game adaptation, too? The folks at Funcom and developer Level Infinite certainly think so, as they've just announced Dune Awakening. Check out the announcement trailer above.

Dune Awakening is an open world survival MMO based on the film, allowing you and many other players to explore the world of Arrakis. Details are light aside from that, but the promise of a fully explorable world set within Dune's universe will be pretty exciting for fans.

There's no release date attached, so it could still be a way off, but we do know it's heading to PS5 eventually. Are you excited about Dune Awakening? Let us know in the comments section below.
