View Full Version : Play Dune 2 Again. Acquire More Spice.

09-22-11, 08:20 PM
Dune II established many standards for the real-time strategy genre that still hold true in titles today ‚?? such as StarCraft, Warcraft, and Command & Conquer. Left with no true successor to the Dune franchise since Emperor: Battle for Dune, fans of the series have been waiting a long time for a proper sequel. You could imagine my excitement when I learned of a fan-made recreation of Dune II‚??s mulitplayer.

Dune II: The Golden Patch successfully brings back the magic, while incorporating compatibility with Windows XP/Vista/7/, Linux, and Mac. Developer Drackbolt put a strong emphasis on making the multiplayer experience as enjoyable and balanced as possible. Two of the main changes: Tanks no longer squash foot soldiers, and foot soldiers are unable to capture structures. Once you get past the balance changes, the experience remains faithful to Dune II. My biggest complaint? It needs a single-player campaign!

If you‚??re looking for people to play with, check out the (admittedly small) Steam group (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Dune2Online)!

That was way before WC2.

Dune 2 was the RTS that made the whole genre popular. Or to put it another way, it was the first RTS that was done right.
