Elvenar, the upcoming strategy game from InnoGames, has released a video detailing the alternate playstyles available in the free to play strategy game. When starting, players are already given the choice between building with the elves or the humans (both with different strengths and opportunities) but now players can choose one of two effective ways to grow their city, as well.
Players of a more aggressive nature can bulk up on armories and workshops to use brute force to impose their will on the large NPC population of the world while players of a more peaceful nature can opt to build up population and manufatories to stockpile goods for peaceful trading.
Each playstyle comes with its own downside though as brute force gets harder and harder to maintain as your empire grows, but peace usually has a higher price tag when negotiating for the goods that you need.
Stop by the Elvenar site for the full breakdown when you’re ready to decide which road you should take.
