Iron Harvest 1920+ – 21 Million Mechs – This calls for a Revolution!
New Game Mode, Free Public Demo, ESL Fall Tournament, Rusviet Revolution Campaign And Epic Release
Planegg / Bremen, Germany – November 20 , 2020 – three months after the successful release of the critically acclaimed RTS Iron Harvest, the developers at KING Art Games are eager to recap and announce a wide array of new additions to the world of 1920+. Today’s announcement and outlook introduces the upcoming story content “Rusviet Revolution”, a new game mode called “Drop Zone” as well as a free demo and the game’s availability on the Epic Game Store as off now.
The alternate history and it’s diesel punk inspired world have seen over 21.000.000 mechs ravaging on the battlefield, capturing over 2.000.000 resource buildings. Out of the three factions, Saxony sees the highest pick rate, with Polania being a close second and Rusviet coming in as number 3. When it comes to Heroes, Polanian girl Anna and her paw swinging companion Wojtek seem to be the most favourable out of all heroes, taking the number one spot.
Keeping the diesel engines in check the team has released six new maps since the game’s launch on Sept 1st 2020 launch on PC. Ranging from a once bustling Harbor City to the no man’s land of the Great Wastes. New challenges, each unique in setting and strategic options, have been added as part of the first season alongside the highly anticipated ranked mode which sees players climbing the ranks of Iron Harvest.
As a treat for all lore-lovers a Codex was added to the game, compiling all the details and lore to display the deep and rich background of Iron Harvest rooted in the universe of 1920+. Additional cosmetical items, skins and other collectibles have been released during October and will be added to the game regularly in the future.
Is it a plane? Is it a bird? It is a … crate? New Game Mode "Drop Zone" coming to the world of 1920+.
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:
