We don’t tend to see a lot of alternate history sci-fi games set in a post-World War I world, do we? Or they aren’t prominent, at least. But developer King Art Games aims to rectify this with Iron Harvest, a real-time strategy game set in the world of 1920+ (because if we can have a 200X, why not this as well) where The Great War was fought by a mankind that had become obsessed with machinery, complete with giant mechs, and the various metal from discarded weapons and ammunition gathered by farmers afterwards led to the titular harvest. The end result appears be an impressive take on a mechanized warfare, as seen in the pre-alpha gameplay teaser below.
Following a conflict between the factions of The Saxony Empire, The Polania Republic, and Rusviet, players will lead mechs and soldiers into battle and take advantage of cover mechanics and dynamic destruction during firefights, all while journeying across open sandbox levels in a game inspired by likes of Company of Heroes and Men at War. Iron Harvest is still in the early stages of development, but is currently set for a 2019 release for PC, XB1, and PS4, giving strategy fans a unique treat to look forward to.
