KING Art Games announced what attractions are prepared for the fans of Iron Harvest. The plans for the coming weeks include an update with new content, a story DLC, a multiplayer tournament and a time-limited demo.
The game could use such reinforcement, as its popularity leaves a lot to be desired. Yesterday, at the hottest moment of the day, only 375 people were playing Iron Harvest on Steam. The game is also available on Epic Games Store and GOG.com, so this data doesn't fully reflect its condition, but the devs still have to act if they want to keep the community of players at a decent level.
Update with new mode
On November 17 a new patch will be released, which will introduce a new multiplayer mode called Drop Zone. In this mode, supplies are dropped onto the map, and players' task is to collect them. This is rewarded with victory points, and the match is won by whoever accumulates a certain number of them first.
During the game there will often be several airdrops at once and it will take a long time to capture them. The game is therefore supposed to revolve around the defense of supplies delivered to the battlefield and the struggle to capture future drop points. Drop Zone will be playable on all skirmish mode maps.
Rusviet Revolution DLC
On December 17, a paid story expansion Rusviet Revolutionwill be released , available for $3.99. It will be made available for free to owners of Digital Deluxe edition and players who supported Iron Harvest during the collection on Kickstarter.
The DLC will focus on the revolution to overthrow the Car, and Rasputin will play a key role in the story. The add-on will offer a total of four single-player missions.
Demo and tournament
From November 25 to December 1, a demo will be available, enabling us to test the game for free. It will offer several campaign missions, skirmishes against AI and multiplayer mode.
A tournament in Iron Harvest is also planned for fall. Eliminations will take place on November 28 and 29, as well as and December 5 and 12, and the finals will take place on December 19. What's important, players using the demo will be able to take part in the competition. Those interested should go to the official website and register.
Iron Harvest was released on September 1, this year. The game is only available on PC, but editions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are also planned. However, we will wait for the console releases until next year.
