Wage war in the North and assume command of the most storied civilizations in all of Middle-earth history - the Elven and Dwarven armies - or fight on the side of Evil with heroes and creatures that have never been seen in The Lord of the Rings films. Defend or overtake never before seen lands such as Dol Guldur, The Misty Mountains, and Mirkwood as you unleash powerful new weapons and abilities, such as summoning dragons.

Today, we proudly present the first Age of the Ring trailer!




The trailer previews the Erebor faction, and, more importantly, a new map that will be included in its release: Thorin's Halls - made by Fudge, the latest mapper to join our team. We've worked with Fudge before, including on The Dwarf Holds - whose team leader Nertea has generously allowed us to use his extensive library of Dwarven structures and map props.

Thorin's Halls


After the Dragon Smaug ousted the Dwarves of Erebor from their Lonely Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield led his people across Rhovanion, over the Misty Mountains, and through Eriador, until they reached the Blue Mountains, which had been a home to Dwarves since the First Age. There, on the western edge of Middle-earth, far from their stolen home and gold, Thorin built a new life for his people, ruling as King-in-Exile in his newly-carved and much more modest Halls.

Being skilled craftsmen of specialty goods widely in demand, Thorin's Halls soon prospered as a center of trade in Eriador, with many eager customers in the Shire, the Bree-lands, and Dunland, with his caravans occasionally making it all the way down to Rohan and beyond. Later, when Gandalf convinced him to set out and reclaim Erebor, Thorin gathered his companions from all levels of employment inside his Halls - Fili and Kili, Heirs to the Throne, Balin, his long-time advisor, Dwalin, his brother-in-arms, the tinkerer/toymaker Bifur, the miner Bofur, the chef Bombur, his cousins Gloin and Oin, investor and physician, respectively, Dori, a wealthy trader, Nori, a thief with nothing to lose, and Ori, a stout-hearted librarian.
