Hello,

Curious how the classes are different in terms of play style e.g. Is here an aggro mtg red deck, a riskier high stakes class or maybe a slower methodical deck?

Or perhaps there's nothing like that in this game

Guardian helps other investigators and kills monsters.
Seeker is very good at getting clues and specific cards.
Survivor evades monsters (which effectively stuns them) and mitigates bad luck.
Rogue generates lots of resources and runs away from monsters.
Mystic relies on unconventional costs and high-risk, high-reward gameplay.

Doing damage for taking horror?
Searching for spells for advancing Doom?
Gaining clues extra xp* for taking a random Encounter card?

Off the top of my head.

*misremembered the card

Delve Too Deep is the perfect example - everyone draws an extra Encounter, and then gets an extra Victory Point at the end.

Best info ever for today
I wonder if there will be new classes evolved in the future game...

Imo mystic class is more: too much risk and not so great reward

Manipulating the Mythos deck. Pulling clues off high-shroud locations with no chaos draw. Also, being able to do everything with a single stat (once the spell list fills out). Mystics actually look like they'll be potentially very reliable, trading their well-being for guaranteed success or being able to focus on Will to the exclusion of other stats. Potentially.
