Iron Harvest

Publisher Deep Silver and developer King Art Games have released a new trailer and screenshots for real-time strategy game Iron Harvest introducing the “Saxony Empire” faction.

Here is an overview of factions, the Saxony Empire, and the game, via Deep Silver:

About Factions

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 Saxony Empire

Having a history of being one of the most influential countries in Europe, the proud Saxony Empire is facing challenging times with its elites and aristocrats feeling humiliated after World War I. With wounded pride, but massive mechs, the Saxony Empire is driven to regain their honor on the battlefield.

Saxony mechs are often named after legendary characters and figures of old heroic tales and myths. And surely, looking at the tremendous firepower they bring to the battlefield, the Brunhilde, Eisenhans and Grimbart mech units live up to these dark fairy tales. Though just like Achilles, every war machine may have a weak spot on its back.

About Iron Harvest

Iron Harvest is a real-time strategy game (RTS) set in the alternate reality of 1920+. At the dawn of the 20th century, shortly after the end of the Great War, the world is full of secrets and mysteries, of opportunities and challenges. Tradition clashes with scientific and technological progress, while Europe is still recovering from the brutal battles of the World War. To create the perfect RTS-experience the team has been working in close cooperation with global RTS-fans ever since the highly successful Kickstarter campaign.

Iron Harvest is due out for PC via Steam on September 1, and for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date. A “Pre-Season / Open Beta” is available now via Steam.
