: : : : : Emperor: Battle for Dune

Background

The battle for Dune finally gets the 3D facelift from Westwood Studios. Emperor: Battle for Dune lets you choose from 3 unique sides (Altreides, Harkonnen, or Ordos) and ally with 5 subgroups, to begin a quest to seize the Imperial Throne. Journey through 5 gameworlds by plotting large-scale strategic advances on planetary maps, then participate in ground and air assaults in real time 3D. Now you can ride the Sandworms!
