Announced last year by developer King Art Games, real-time strategy game Iron Harvest has recently received new gameplay footage. The game is set in an alternative history post-World War I where people profit from the “iron harvest” (shrapnel left over from the war) and use giant walking mechs in combat. In the latest video, King Art Games showed off some of the game’s systems, and added combat mechanics.
“This year we have been working hard to get the basics right for our upcoming RTS Iron Harvest,” the developer wrote in its video. “With our destruction system, you can destroy buildings and objects of any size and complexity… All covers in the game are dynamic. You can destroy them and create new ones.” The video goes on to highlight the main additions to the game since the developer’s last progress update. “We added squads, pathfinding, weapons & armor, damage types, user interface, controls, and about a dozen other systems.” The video also details King Art Games’ upcoming additions to the game. “Next step is a 1 vs 1 multiplayer mode in spring 2018.”
Iron Harvest will release for PC, though currently there is no release date for the single-player campaign in development. As mentioned in the video, a multiplayer mode is coming this spring. The full video is below:
