If you own the main game and buy Operation Eagle, or have the Deluxe edition (not Kickstarter or backers edition), then you’ll unlock:
This means if you buy Operation Eagle, but not the main game, you can:
To play as Usonia on GoG and Epic Games Store, you will need to already own the base Iron Harvest game when you buy Operation Eagle
It is always a pleasure to work with the astute archivists of the Templin institute to add more flavour and lore to the amazing world of 1920+. They’ll be airdropping the latest lore later today (Thursday May 27th) at 21:00 CEST and Streaming an hour later.
Familiarize yourself with the forces of Usonia with this faction reveal video.
As with all things Iron Harvest, Operation Eagle will take you on an expansive story arc where morality is neither black or white. Will Usonia be conquer or oppressor?
As a thank you to our community, we are offering many physical goodies from the Deep Silver Collector’s Edition. These are different to, and available separately from, the backers rewards which will hopefully begin shipping this summer.
Join Sir Tobi and The Iron Doctor as they fly high and offer plenty of chances to win physical goodies. Join in the shenanigans here!
We’ll also be celebrating with our crazy friends the Lords Of Gaming on the Iron Lords podcast. We had a ton of laughs last time and we’re sure this time, with the added fun of Usonia, it’ll be a blast ;) Join us here!
While airships are cool, one of the best things about Iron Harvest is the community and the events you organize. The pro and casual competitive scene has evolved and grown a lot since release. It’s continues to be our great pleasure to watch and support this.
With the arrival of Usonia, the multiplayer game has been thrown wide open and so there is everything to play for. We’re looking forward to seeing your strategies adapt.
Thanks to players feedback, we’ve implemented a ton of changes to improve the game experience when playing against A.I.
As a result of all these improvements we’ve had to adjust the main campaign maps to restore their original spirit. This increased the general campaign difficulty which we then reduced again through other means while still keeping the smarter A.I. and enemy behaviours. Therefore, many old campaign maps are now more responsive, dynamic and fun than ever before!
These changes and improvements regrettably, but unavoidably, mean that in-mission saved games files from before this update are invalidated. We apologize for this inconvience but campaign progression is unaffected.
For skirmish/multiplayer, Usonia changes everything. Everyone will be experimenting with them to figure out what works best. As the chaos on the battlefield unfolds, we will be monitoring the game closely, collecting game data and making assessments. It will require time for the dust to settle, but no doubt we will have to modify the games balance once an accurate picture emerges.
Devs are also streaming on Twitch!
