Wednesday, October 26, 2016 — Today a new guest race arrived in InnoGames’ fantasy city builder Elvenar. From chapter nine on, the Woodelves will bring peace back to nature after the arrival of the Orcs and Goblins. The company also released a new video that shows an overview by Game Designer Timon and graphic artist Rike.
In contrast to the previous guest race, the Woodelves were never extinct and therefore need no portal to come back. The new guest race will not only bring many new buildings and units but also a completely new resource: Mana. New cultural buildings will produce this brand-new supply. It is used to activate new technologies in the research tree, expand the main building and build new roads. However, not all cultural buildings can produce mana and those that do will need a street connection in the future. This means players will need to be more strategic with their city layout. In addition, players can only store mana for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of it decays daily.
Elvenar is a city-building strategy-MMO, set in an exotic fantasy world. Tasked with creating a flourishing city, players can choose between Elves or Humans as a starting race. The game’s focus lies on building and upgrading a city, but players also trade or explore the world map. The choice between Elves and Humans influences the way the players’ cities and inhabitants look and which technologies and units are at their disposal. The Elves live and breathe magic and exist in close harmony with nature, whereas Humans are ambitious and determined engineers.
