It should because the honored matres are nude? Also will be able to play as female characters. I refuse to play as a dude
There is absolutely zero information on Dune. If such information existed, it would have its own forum, and it does not. Patience.
They’re what? I mean, they are superior hand-to-hand fighters, yes, but I haven’t read anything that says that they go nude all the time
Also, why are we assuming that the Dune game would be set in the time after the Scattering?
I really doubt any game studio would be dumb enough to take Dune and restrict players to one specific gender.
I’d like to introduce you to a game called Rust…
Who knows for sure since as Multigun pointed out already there is no information about it. However, considering you could chose between male and female characters in Age of Conan, The Secret World and Conan Exiles I would find it unlikely that they would restrict you in Dune. But who really knows yet until they actually give even a shred of information about the game.
Wait, is Rust based on popular IP like Dune? Because that’s why I said “dumb enough to take Dune”. The books have a huge cult following, and I imagine the movies and the mini-series also have it.
It’s kinda like getting the rights to do the Lord of the Rings online persistent-world multiplayer game and then restricting players to playing male humans. Sure, it’s theoretically possible, but it would be incredibly idiotic.
You’ve never seen the hit TV series Rust? It was on for like 15 years. It stared that guy… you know… him. From that other show. And whats-her-name. It was great!
Who’s working on this, Sausage Fest Studios…?
Well, to be fair, it is a legitimate concern. I dislike not being able to create my own character or having the options for doing so limited. It’s not an automatic deal breaker, but custom characters are a big plus.
I generally agree, though some of the best narrative experiences I’ve had (which I value highly in games) are from games that gave you a specific character to play, rather than a make-your-own.
“What can change the nature of a man?”
They’re not mutually exclusive concepts though. It just kind of depends on the story being told.
Mass Effect, for example, allowed a fair range of customization, but the story was about the first human spectre, thus the character had to be human. Then there’s The Witcher, which was all about Geralt of Rivia. Pretty much no room for customization there beyond playstyle and haircut.
Conversely you’ve got Dragon Age, which has a range of options and in fact the story and quests would change a bit depending on certain elements you picked for your character. Then there’s Baldur’s Gate or Neverwinter Nights, which even though you couldn’t change your look much simply due to the technology behind it, you were afforded a whole plethora of options for what kind of character you wanted to play as.
Playable sand trout or stage three guild navigators jk
I would like to introduce you to the Dune franchise. Created by Frank Herbert in 1965. Yes there should be female characters to stay true to canon and the IP. Otherwise Brian Herbert should kick Funcom to the curb.
@cheezypigs is asking the real questions here. :))
I doubt Dune will have nudity but I could be wrong since I never pictured Dune going in that direction.
With Dune having strong male and female characters in the novel, I am sure they will have female characters in the game.
I never played Rust, but I am surprised to hear that the game creation was limited.
I wonder if House Harkonnen will have heart-plugs in game?
We can realy hope so and the crafter will have the same options as the combat folowers. When we can asume that mutch will be based on how Conan wors whitout the limitation they have build themself in it in this game. I meen if you dont like nusety you can always tur it off so no harm.
But if its nudety it will be for all gender or non!
Espec in year 2000 +
But the question is not if you can play female or/and male its:
Not having a gender or identifying with a gender. They may describe themselves as being gender neutral or genderless.
A person who fluctuates between traditionally “male” and “female” gender-based behaviours and identities.
A person whose gender identity and biological sex assigned at birth are the same. For example they were born biologically as a male, and express their gender as male.
The external display of one’s gender, through a combination of how they dress, how they act and other factors, generally measured on scales of masculinity and femininity.
A mix of boy and girl. A person who is gender fluid may always feel like a mix of the two traditional genders, but may feel more man some days, and more woman other days.
A gender identity label often used by people who do not identify with being a man or a woman, or as an umbrella term for many gender non-conforming or non-binary identities.
A person born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside.
Someone who either by nature or by choice does not conform to gender-based expectations of society
Is a title (e.g. Mr., Ms., etc.) that is gender neutral. Pronounced miks, (similar to Ms) it is often the option of choice for folks who do not identify as cisgender.
A term for a person who does not identify with either man or woman, but identifies with another gender. This gender category is used by societies that recognise three or more genders, both contemporary and historic, and is also a conceptual term meaning different things to different people who use it.
A person who lives as a member of a gender other than that expected based on sex assigned at birth.
Is an umbrella term traditionally used by Native American people to recognise individuals who possess qualities of both genders
Alternate pronouns that are gender neutral. Pronounced /zee/ and /here/ they replace “he” and “she” and “his” and “hers” respectively. Alternatively some people who are not comfortable/do not embrace he/she use the plural pronoun “they/their” as a gender neutral singular pronoun.
caracters that will be the Q to maybe expect!
Cyberpunk have alredy opend that dore so…
Technically, speaking, most if not all above can be recognized / created by the player now in games. How you play your character is up to you.
Side note, if you were playing in a medieval roleplaying server, you may need to tweak the concept/language to how the medieval world saw/worded the genders of the time. I have no idea on historical context of genders, but just food for thought if you are in roleplay server. For example, Mx. is fairly new term. It would not exactly fit in a medieval roleplay setting unless the server felt use of modern terminology was acceptable.
Forgetting this was a Dune game topic in Conan Exiles, also you may have to look into Dune terminology to see what works or not. Did they use Mr. Ms. Mrs, etc? If not, Mx. may not exactly work in the context of the world the game is in. Not an expert on Dune either (beyond the film), although have friends who are huge Dune fans where I could ask.
