The Harvest is undoubtedly one of the fastest rising web3 games in popularity at the moment. The game looks astonishingly beautiful and brings an extremely fun MOBA experience accompanied by fast-paced third-person shooter action.
The Harvest takes you on a journey to a planet called O’Ree-Jin, rich in the Essence of Life, a highly desirable resource amongst the 4 surrounding planets and their unique civilizations. All 4 planets compete in teams of 3 in epic showdowns for the most essence accumulated in a 10 minute timeframe.
What The Harvest instantly stands out for is its focus on teamplay mechanics that have been designed for massive audiences, being easy to play but hard to master. Players will compete in teams of 3 in epic showdowns for the most essence accumulated in a 10 minute timeframe. That’s the win condition of each game, and your hero plays a vital role in helping your team achieve that.
Team compositions are incredibly important in being able to accommodate different players’ needs. Each hero has abilities and power cards. Each one of these can define your playstyle during the game. Ability cards range from buffing your weapon damage to being able to see enemies through walls and surfaces obstructing your view. Every season new NFT cards will appear to keep the meta fresh and always give players new gameplay elements to adapt to.
Another major gameplay component is Companion Cards. Think of it as The Harvest version of Destiny’s Ghost companion robot. Players will be able to go into battle supported with a robot to their side possessing a special ability. This can be anything from executing enemies under a certain health threshold to reviving a teammate when they go down.
So far, The Harvest roster features 5 characters; Alith, Duke, Kira, Sahad, and Braku. The latter is yet to be released, while the former four are available for players to enjoy. Each one of them brings a unique playstyle to the table to cater to different players.
Duke is a heavy artillery fighter with machine guns tied into his arms. The Drifters are a nomadic culture, moving their battleships from place to place based on their needs so you bet he knows how to fight.
Weapon: Rocket Launcher
Main Ability: Jetpack
Secondary Ability: Power Dive
Alith is a dual-weapon wielding hero with tons of movement abilities for players who want to take out an enemy and quickly reposition for their next takedown.
Weapon: Dual Shotguns

Kira is more suitable for players who like to outsmart their opponent rather than simply outgun them. Coming from the Ascendancy, her innate ability to manipulate light tricks players and buys you enough time to take them down.
Weapon: Sub-machine gun

Secondary Ability: Chromatic Barrier
Sahad, representing the Sons of Venor civilization, specializes in eliminating targets from afar with their sniper rifles. They are able to sabotage technological tools in their enemies’ disposal as well.

Secondary Ability: Tactical Retreat
How to Get Started
The Harvest Open Beta is scheduled for October 2022 so make sure to join their Discord to download the game and be prepared.
We got the chance to try out The Harvest first hand with the developers guiding us through the different characters, abilities, and future plans for the game. The Harvest presents itself as a fast-paced team-focused shooter, and the emphasis on teamplay is intelligently implemented in-game to make sure lone wolves can’t simply solo carry a game.
The Harvest rewards players who assist each other and work towards the objective. However, it falls short in delivering a flawless gameplay experience, with frequent glitches, hitbox registration, and connectivity issues. It is worth noting that The Harvest still has a long way to go, but it is an incredibly promising title.
