THE BATTLE FOR THE ESSENCE HAS ARRIVED.
In The Harvest, players control characters in third-person perspective and use abilities to fight against other teams in a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) setting. The game is set on the planet O'Ree-Jin, where players aim to defeat their opponents and collect a substance known as the essence of life. Teams of three players face off against each other, with the goal of gaining control of the planet.
After acquiring the IP from The Breach Studios, the gaming studio that conceptualized the project in the first place, Falco.gg is now the gaming publisher responsible for The Harvest. The core team brings experiences from studios such as Ubisoft, Gameloft, or Konami eSports.
The game is being developed on Unreal Engine and it’s planned to be multichain, while currently being already on BNB Chain and Solana.
Multiplayer Online Battle Arena
The planet O'Ree-Jin has been discovered to contain the Essence of Life, a substance that is highly coveted by the civilizations of four surrounding planets.
There are four main civilizations in the game: the Imperial Triarchy is a race of cyborg-like subterranean beings; the Drifters Commonwealth are intergalactic nomads, the Ascendancy is a race of energy beings with the ability to control light; and the Sons of Venor are a hunting-gathering civilization that specializes in dangerous creature hunting. A fifth civilization is expected to be introduced in the future.
Teams of three heroes from these civilizations travel to the planet and compete to collect the most essence, fighting against one another in order to emerge victorious and take control of the universe's essence.
Each match consists of four teams competing on a symmetrical map and lasts for 10 minutes, with the team that has collected the most essence at the end of the time being declared the winner. The gameplay involves shooting, mobility, and the use of hero abilities, all of which are designed to encourage teamwork.
There are numerous ways to acquire essence, so players must decide on the strategy that best fits their playstyle. Some options include absorbing essence from Essence Extractors, defeating enemy heroes, attacking other team's bases to steal their essence, and defeating AI creatures on the planet. With so many options available, players must think carefully and choose the approach that will allow them to dominate the competition.
Players in the game may select from a variety of heroes to play as in each match. Each hero has their own unique abilities and role on the team.
Alith, the Truthslayer, is good at attacking and fighting up close. It has a Shotgun and can use a special move called Dash to move quickly and get close to its enemies. It also has a special attack called Quantum Blades that hurts its opponents and lets Alith teleport to them.
Duke, the Blitzer, is equipped with a rocket launcher that does a lot of damage but doesn't shoot very fast, which is good for fighting from medium to long distances. Duke also has a jetpack that lets them fly and an ability called Power Dive that lets them dive from the air and cause damage to a lot of enemies at once.
Kira, the Guardian, helps their teammates move around and get to places quickly. It has a sub-machinegun that shoots a lot of bullets but doesn't do a lot of damage, which is good for fighting from short to medium distances. Kira can create a projection of itself that explodes and lets it switch places with it, and also create a barrier that their allies can use to heal themselves.
Sahad, the Hunter, is your typical sniper and are good for long distance battles. Sahad also has a grappling hook that helps with moving around and an ability called Tactical Retreat that it uses to escape when in close quarters and need to get away.
In addition to their abilities, each hero can also use Hero Cards. These cards are used during gameplay and provide both active and passive bonuses. There are two types of cards in the game: common and premium. As players progress through a match, their character will level up. At each new level, the player is given the option to choose two cards that will enhance their abilities. Players can bring a selection of 10 different cards to a game, and characters can level up a maximum of five times. This means that a player can equip up to five of the cards they have brought to the game.
Each Mystery Box contains 10 random cards while the Legendary Box contains 40.
The Harvest is a highly promising game that emphasizes teamwork and cooperation, making it an enjoyable gameplay experience when players work towards the objective. While the developers are actively working on fixing bugs and improving the game, there are concerns that the NFTs may create a pay-to-win environment and impact the game's long-term potential. Despite these concerns, it is clear that the developers have a vision for The Harvest's future and are dedicated to improving the game.
