Dune's textures and name indicates that it was a desert that featured one or more dunes likely set inside a giant sand pit. A separate texture segment for a place likely related to Dune named "dune_par_erea_gate" includes a texture named "taimatsu" which translates to "fire pillar" (this texture is also in Valley).
"Gate" areas typically do not indicate that such areas have a literal gate, but rather a separate model of a path leading to the arena. Examples of this include the passages to Kuromori's Underground arena and the inner area of Argus' Parthenon with the fallen pillar, which is named "parthenon_area_gate", so it can be presumed that Dune once had some similar variation of a pathway.
An old ambient texture of 'G2' (Poseidon's Lake) found in earlier versions of the game shows an extension of the desert connecting to 'F2', 'F1' and 'G1'; with what appears to be a border of a sand pit that extended further into 'G1'. No feature like this exists in any actual model from the versions available, and it can be assumed that the texture is from much earlier in development. Huge dunes can be seen in G1, making a circle around a Save Shrine. This could be a memento of the time when Worm lived in the quadrant which now houses Argus, but the overall shape of it was not likely to have been the same. The chip data of Dune reveals that the area was much larger, making it possible that the dunes also were.
- Worm's arena was previously speculated to have been located at B2 or areas near it, due to some remnants of land being found in the Preview and earlier versions of the game. It was debunked however, when it was discovered that those same types of lands existed all across the map; as it can be seen in early footage from the Nico bonus DVD, which shows the same cliffs and ground in the F5 quadrant, near the entrance to Valus' arena. The same type of land as B2 can also be seen in G0.
