Here’s a new trailer for Iron Harvest, the upcoming RTS based in the same universe as 2016's very good board game Scythe.

There’s a lot of gameplay footage here, showing that asides from the lumbering dieselpunk giants, there’s also some very Company of Heroes-ish infantry combat going on.

Iron Harvest is coming for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

I’m politely suspicious about the fact that it looks a great deal like Company of Heroes but will be coming out for PS4 and Xbox.

Not that console strategy games can’t work (they totally can), but that I’m not sure how you’d translate something that seems to have a CoH style cover/vehicle facing system to consoles without making the control scheme AWFUL.
