A Year Of Rain the ultimate team RTS games coming to Windows, but also on Linux. Since Daedalic Entertainment is eager to announce their first internally developed title. This is also a multiplayer real time strategy game. Which is coming to Steam in 2019.

So as you can expect, A Year Of Rain features epic heroes. Also an extensive story mode. Plus the title focuses heavily on team gameplay. Which will go into Early Access later this year. But it’s coming to both Linux and Windows.

Linux Support:

“The game is planning to launch on Linux. And is being developed with Unreal Engine 4.”

So this indeed a good sign. A Year Of Rain will have a Linux release. However the Steam page only shows Windows. Therefore I would expect support once closer to release, will see an update.
Despite the fact that Early Access titles can focus on one platform. But I’m still keeping hope alive for Linux. Since Unreal Engine 4 is great for multiplayer games. Just be sure to Wishlist on Steam.
