Here is an overview of factions, the Rusviets, and the game, via Deep Silver:
Iron Harvest tells an epic, overarching story following three factions and their protagonists in the alternate-fiction universe of 1920+. Each of the factions offers different tactical opportunities and advantages in battle. This not only allows for an intense story spanning across 20 missions in three campaigns, but also grants players deep tactical multiplayer experiences in which strategy beats clicks-per-second at any time. Additional Skirmish and Challenge Maps allow players to challenge the AI alone or in co-op with a friend.
About the Rusviets
After the Great War and on the brink of a revolution, the Rusviet nation is struggling to keep a constant flow of resources up and running. Resources they desperately need to fuel their huge, expensive war machines. Today’s video introduces the Rusviet Mechs and gives a first idea on how they are used best on the battlefields of Iron Harvest.
Inspired by post World War I-history, Iron Harvest tells the story of a Rusviet Empire facing internal struggles while trying to maintain a dominant position on the battlefield. Close combat with heavy mechs, or slow but highly devastating artillery are to be balanced when players lead the Rusviet soldiers to the front.
