To give fans a first impression of this new faction, Daedalic has set up the Undead Champs Tournament. Four teams, among them RTS players from TKA E-Sports and Berliner eSports Club e.V., are fighting for top standing before the grand finale on September 28 at 19:00 CEST.

A Year Of Rain combines classic real-time strategy elements with a strong focus on teamplay and hero units. The game’s co-op campaigns and online and offline modes are designed with a team of two players in mind. The classic 2v2 skirmish mode is being developed for competitive matches from the very start. Meanwhile, the “Against All Odds“ mode is an innovation in the genre, where two lone heroes face two entire armies.
