Battle Realms follows the basic formula for many real-time strategy games. All of Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf factions have similar buildings with similar uses and workers. However, unlike in most real-time strategy games, the peasant worker unit in Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf is not just used for resource gathering and construction, but also for training into military units. Thus, military buildings in Battle Realms are not used for making units, but for transforming and upgrading them. Due to the high popularity of Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf, all the gamers go to websites where they can download Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf for free or buy Battle Realms.
