The alternate-history RTS World War 1 game Iron Harvest was released a few weeks ago. The reception of Iron Harvest has been positive so far, but some criticism was made toward some missing basic features. Developer King Art Games listened to the fans' feedback and have released a major update that improves Iron Harvest in almost every aspect.

The update is now live and should download automatically. From now on, you can play the entire campaign with a friend. Co-op campaign support is here to make your experience even better. You just need to choose the mission and invite a friend, that’s it. Keep in mind that both players will have access to all the friendly units, so you'll need to work together to achieve victory.

A brand new map called The Great Wastes is also introduced. It’s a 3v3 Multiplayer and Skirmish map. You can check out the trailer of the map above. The update also makes the game feel more authentic. Native language support has been added. I know most of us probably won’t understand what they are saying, but hey, that’s what the subtitles are for.

There are several other changes the update made. They are mentioned below and on the official site.
