Multiplayer RTS Iron Harvest 1920‘s latest patch has added a new competitive mode, Drop Zone, which can be played in all PvP modes as well as skirmish versus AI.
In Drop Zone, players compete to claim air drops that appear at random points on the map, earning points for each drop they claim. It’s a more dynamic take on the control points currently seen in the game, and mobility will be key. Sorry, turtle players.
Also on the competitive front, Iron Harvest has launched a fall ESL tournament, with qualifying rounds already underway.
But if you’re not a competitive player, don’t despair. Story fans are getting some love too. December will see the release of Iron Harvest‘s first story DLC, Rusviet Revolution. It will feature four new campaign missions playable solo or co-op and shed new light on the sinister Rasputin. The DLC will be free to Kickstarter backers and deluxe edition owners, or cost 3.99€ on Steam otherwise.
We previously covered Iron Harvest in the Not So Massively column, praising the surprising humanity of its story-telling. If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out this dieselpunk RTS, there’s currently a free trial running through Steam, but you’ll need to act fast: The trial event ends on December 1st.
