Pre-season Open Beta Now Live, Big Prize Tournament & New Cinematic Trailer!

    News: Free Pre-season Open Beta!

    It’s the moment many of you have been waiting for. You can now play the current Beta for free on PC-Steam! Judging by the response we’ve had, we’re not sure who’s more excited, you or us?!

    The Pre-Season Open Beta contains:

    • A sneak-peak at the thrilling first campaign missions & cinematics. Learn the game by starting your adventure with Anna and Wojtek. 
    • Skirmish mode for players to take on the A.I. alone or in co-op with a friend.
    • Challenge maps for players who really want to test their skills.
    • Competitive Multiplayer: Players can challenge each other to thrilling toe to toe battles on 1vs.1, 2vs.2 or 3vs.3 maps!
    • Competitive, prize winning tournaments. See below for details.

    Please remember the game is still in Beta and we are using it to test the game before full release. Most of the core game elements are there, but we’re still polishing. We are committed to developing Iron Harvest for a long time after release. We’re always collecting feedback, talking to players, and working to improve the game. 

    To play, just click here and download the Open Beta. Have Fun!

    This pre-season open Beta will end with the ESL multiplayer finale during the digital GamesCom.

    News: New Cinematic Trailer!

    We believe that a strong narrative single player campaign is vital to any good RTS and we also enjoy bringing even more depth to Jakub Rozalski’s fantastic world of 1920+. That's why we’re extremely proud to reveal this official cinematic trailer. 

    Watch to get a good flavor of the story, characters, and the world you’ll encounter during the campaign missions. Enjoy!

    You can help us out by sharing the trailer with your friends and in social media. Feedback has been great and the more people we can reach with the trailer, the more people will have Iron Harvest on their radar.

    Info: How Backers Can Play Vs. New Players

    Our backers and early supporters who already have Iron Harvest installed can now play with new players joining with the Open Beta. We’ve implemented an “invite code” which can be created and given to friends. Here’s how.

    Looking Ahead

    We’re going to update the pre-season version of Iron Harvest multiple times. We’re looking forward to adding localized text for many (many!) languages shortly and we’ll also work on new metagame features, fixes, and balancing adjustments. And there are new maps for multiplayer, skirmish and challenges coming up.

    Everybody in the team worked hard to get the game where it is, and we’ll keep working hard to make it the best possible version to release and beyond. Thank you so much for your constructive feedback and positive reinforcement. We are tired but excited to share Iron Harvest with you and the world.
