The Harvest Launches on Windows 8

Today sees the release of a visually updated and expanded release of the essential Windows Phone 7 launch app, The Harvest, now available on Windows 8. This new edition of the critically acclaimed The Harvest features all the fun of the original videogame and adds new synchronous multiplayer to the already intense action.

In this science-fiction-themed action role-playing game (RPG) set in a distant future, hostile aliens are out to turn Earth’s organic life into cyborgs. These aliens, known as The Harvesters, use humans and animals to create cyborgs: crude amalgamations of flesh and machinery. Thanks to the development of human controlled mechanised infantry units, you and the rest of mankind may finally have a chance to fight back. As a member of the Global Defense Force (GDF), you and your fellow freedom fighters have been deployed to various parts of the world to wage a war against The Harvesters in hope of restoring Earth to its rightful owners.

Available to download now, The Harvest is priced at £4.99 GBP. Metro Gaming will keep you updated with all the latest Xbox branded titles made available for Windows 8.
