It wasn’t long ago when players were engrossed with the world of Dragon’s Dogma 2, and the developers gave players a rare opportunity to access the in-game character creator feature and the results were horrendously creative. Funcom also gave the community a brief look at what is to come and the plethora of options the game provides is unprecedented, from hair to body size and even tattoos, the developers have it all planned out.

The technology has improved over time and the MMORPG genre has taken full advantage to curate the player’s grand design for their characters.

Dune: Awakening shares the same assets as the live-action films and the players can now literally inject themselves into Arrakis as they wander the planet and take part in activities with an avatar of their creation that adds an extra level of immersion.

The promos and advertisements that Funcom has put out to promote the game have been in full swing which could indicate a release date very soon, the potential is there for Dune: Awakening to be the greatest game adaptation of all time if what was shown is consistently present throughout the game. Perhaps there are a few hidden surprises that the developers are keeping under wraps but the great deal of detail and the atmosphere of Arrakis is a true technological marvel.

Unlike Funcom’s game, Dragon’s Dogma 2 does not benefit from the same level of popularity generated by the hype surrounding movies. However, there is a significant target audience interested in the genre who would most likely be interested in trying out Dune: Awakening.

Fans of the movies can spend a ridiculous amount of man-hours recreating the likeness of real people or characters from other franchises into the game.

According to Joel Bylos, the creative director of Awakening, fans are not deterred by the fact that the game takes place in an alternative timeline, as they are still eager to recreate the sibling antagonists Feyd-Rautha and Beast Rabban.

The developers have invested a considerable amount of time and effort into this feature, and fans are making the most of it. The advantage of being able to personalize an original character is that it creates a sense of ownership, and players feel like they are genuinely a part of the game’s world.
