Set in the Dune universe, this free indie game turns Emperor: Battle For Dune into a First/Third Person Shooter. More features are on the way, such as spice fields, sandstorms and advanced vehicle concepts.

Three Great Houses remain after the long fighting on Arrakis. the noble Atreides, The evil Harkonnen and the insidious Ordos. All three houses are after control of Arrakis, for control of the Spice, for control of the Known Universe.

Battle for Dune: War of Assassins is a free total conversion of Command & Conquer: Renegade, which focuses on recreating the world of Dune (as presented in Westwood's Dune 2000 and Emperor: Battle for Dune) in an exciting team-based First Person Shooter.

Play as the mighty House Atreides or the sinister House Harkonnen, and use a variety of unique infantry to destroy the enemy and secure control of Arrakis across several unique maps.

For the first time on the W3D Engine, Battle for Dune brings a number of modern First Person Shooter features with its release. Utilising aim-down-sights, infantry movement inertia, weapon recoil and area-based conquest zones, Battle For Dune aims to provide a fast and intense infantry combat experience.

Play offline against bots to hone your skills before heading online to fight against other players for control of the mind-altering Spice melange; the secret to all Foldspace travel in the Known Universe.

We are proud to announce that Battle for Dune: War of Assassins will be coming to you this Spring (pending any delays). Stay tuned in to the W3D Hub Forums and Discord server for all of the info as the war begins.

He who controls the Spice, controls the universe.
