While it isn’t Funcom’s long-awaited large open world RPG based in the same sci-fi setting, Dune Spice Wars, a 4X strategy game, will send players to Arrakis later this month.

Spice Wars has an early access launch date, according to developer Shiro Games and publisher Funcom: “Shiro Games and Funcom are pleased to announce the final launch faction as well as the official early access release date for Dune: Spice Wars, with players able to walk the dunes of Arrakis beginning April 26th!”

And this is just the beginning of what’s to come! In this episode of The MOP Together, we’ve rounded up some of the lesser MMO news pieces and videos from the last week (and if you spot anything we missed, please let us know)!


Realm of the Mad God’s Easter event and twin dungeon reworks is happening, although you mayyyy not want to visit the site itself: “Realmers, our website has been placed under maintenance after reports of malware here and on Reddit. We decided to close it up and to investigate in order to keep you safe.”

Have you ever wished to learn how to program while playing MMOs? You’ve got it! “ByteLegend is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game where you may acquire programming skills. In my spare time, I’m working on a little hobby project.”

Serafine, a demonic boss, was shown in full: “Serafine is an interesting monster that has many influences and marks the Ravendawn world as the first creature to include complete cycles of attack animations,” according to Ravendawn.

Profane showed off some character models from its Portinus culture. “They will be familiar sights for most settlements from this culture, and we wanted to talk about their roles in the game and what we hope to achieve with these NPCs.”

This month, participants in School of Dragons (based on How to Train Your Dragon) are encouraged to fight back against invading chickens.

“Update 17.1 is now available on the PC Test Servers. With this update, the classic 4×4 jungle is making its return,” PUBG said.

Killer in the Cabin, an early access social survival game, is getting even more multiplayer features including gaming lobbies, AI bots, and text chat.
