The citybuild aspect is depentant on race atm. Orcs can free build (with the exception of where the future town walls go) Elves build on select "great trees" and men build on building plots. I"m guessing a sept/oct release currently. The devs are hard at work and I'm pleased to see how they're patching the beta as the weed out the bugs.
When I'm not in my right mind my left gets kind of crowded.
