Horde of the Damned supports 4-player quickbattle mode. With maps specifically designed for multiplayer action. Each quickbattle map supports up to four players. Each color may be “local” (a human), “AI” (normal or hard) or “closed”. Each human player uses the same controller.

Each color is assigned one of the player types. Red is always Kingdom Troops, Blue is always undead, Yellow is Kingdom and Green is undead. If you want to have a two player undead vs undead then simply choose Blue vs Green.

The current player’s turn is indicated by the color of the cursor.

The AI comes with two difficulty settings – normal and hard. (In the campaign hard AI is used in later levels – the AI does wider analysis of what strategic objectives it wishes to meet).
