'Iron Harvest' (ALL) Demo Next Week, New Game Mode And Campaign Coming

by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2020 @ 1:31 a.m. PST

Iron Harvest is a real-time strategy game set in the world of 1920+, an alternate version of our own world where mankind, fascinated by technology, engines and iron, invented powerful walking machines.

Once mighty weapons on the battlefields of the Great War, they are now part of everyday life. Mighty factions fight for influence, while hidden forces are working towards the destabilization of Europe, determined to set the world on fire once again. Now, a few years after the Great War, secret forces are working towards the destabilization of Europe, determined to set the world on fire and seize control.

After World War 1 farmers found a plethora of unexploded ordnance, barbed wire, weapons, shrapnel and bullets while ploughing their fields. They called it the Iron Harvest.

You lead hero characters, mechs, and soldiers into battle. Cover mechanics and dynamic destruction play a major role in combat. Your squads take cover automatically, but a simple brick wall will only offer protection against small calibers, not against mech-mounted cannons. Throughout its open sandbox levels you have to find your own way to reach the goals set by the dynamic story line.

The Saxony Empire is one of the most influential countries in Europe, with powerful industry, developed cities, modern factories and a strong military tradition. After the unfavorable conditions of surrender in the Great War, the current mood in the Empire is bad, and proud elites and humiliated aristocrats secretly oppose the Emperor’s appeasement policies.

Is it a plane? Is it a bird? It is a … crate? New Game Mode "Drop Zone" coming to the world of 1920+.

Drop Zone

In "Drop Zone" players collect stockpiles that are airdropped across the map. The first player to collect enough Victory Points wins!

Multiple stockpiles can drop simultaneously and take time to collect. Protecting dropped stockpiles while securing future drop zones are the key to victory.

Drop Zone will be available on all existing skirmish maps and can be played in Skirmish, Ranked, Quick Match, and custom matches.

The team is in close touch with the community and are constantly working on weekly updates to keep the battlefield exciting. For more information on the upcoming updates you can check out the November Roadmap:
