Expanding on every feature found in The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II as well as boasting entirely new content. The all new single player campaign’s innovative new units will help to tell the story of the evil Witch-King’s rise to power, domination of Angmar, and invasion of the great kingdom of Arnor, home to Aragorn’s ancestors. To fully experience the evil side of Middle-earth, gamers can now play as the all new Angmar faction in skirmish, multiplayer, and War of the Ring modes.

Experience a whole new depth of strategy with upgraded War of the Ring and Create-A-Hero features. Create-A-Hero’s entirely new Troll class boasts additional weapons and armour that will allow players to have even more freedom in customizing their game play. War of the Ring, the risk-style meta-game, offers upgraded army persistence, a new siege dynamic on the Living World Map, and unified territories that serve as major control points.

About BFME: Tactics with 17 comments by Boruin on Aug 31st, 2015

Dear friends. Not so long ago, we published the news that we close the project. This decision was due to many reasons: lack of interest in the community, a large amount of work, a small amount of free time. Frankly, they are all relevant today. BUT! We decided to give the project a final chance. It is your activity and interest in the project could save him from the final closing. If the community decides that our idea is not interesting and give an advantage to original bfme gameplay - we stop the development.
It should be noted that the word "interest" meant not the number of comments "Wow", not the number of likes and even not the number of downloads. The word "interest" , we mean just two simple things.

Main changes.

1) First main change (comparing with previous versions of BFME: Tactics) is the system of «tactics». That current system represents choice of one of three paths of fraction’s development (note that we’re not speaking of choosing «subfractions» but of style of playing suitable to a player). One can make a choice directly while playing in any opportune moment. At the beginning each fraction has a standard set of units, buildings, heroes and special abilities.

By the example of Gondor, a player can build

There is no possibility for a player to enhance units with blades, armour, banners and arrows in a “standard” choice of fraction, meaning unless certain “tactic” is chosen.

Each tactic in game has it’s profile units available only in that particular tactic. Also, depending on choice of a certain tactic, prices change for standard unis, heroes, buildings and efficiency of enhancements of blades and armours.

In attacking tactic Gondor is capable of

2) The second main change touches spellbook.

News


The first path is all-available special abilities which can be used anytime after building fortress. Three next paths are special tactical abilities which are available after choosing tactic – respectively for each tactic.

General (standard) branch:

  1. Defensive tower (summons a defensive tower)
  2. Summon Rangers (summons a group of Rangers)
  3. Summon Rohirrim (summons a group of Rohirrim)
  4. Earthquake (creates an Earthquake on the selected area of terrain, causing heavy damage to structures)
  5. Summon Army of the Dead (summons the Army of the Dead)

Offensive branch:

  1. Call to atack (+50% damage)
  2. Healing (heals units and heroes in the selected area (including allies))
  3. Under the banner of the King (+2 levels for units in the selected area)
  4. Short rest (for the short time units are stunned and immune to damage (affects all the units and heroes including allies and enemies)
  5. Arrow volley (launches a volley of arrows on the selected area)

Deffensive branch:

  1. Healing (heals units and heroes in the selected area (including allies))
  2. Forests of Ithilien (creates a forest, all nearby ally units gain +50% armor)
  3. Heritage of the Numenor (+50 Armor to structures in the selected area)
  4. Scorched land (spills oil in the selected area which can be set on fire)
  5. Cloud break (cancels all enemy’s weather effects and stuns enemy units)

Heroic branch:

  1. Gifts of Galadriel (all heroes gain experience 25% faster and get +10% move speed)
  2. Return of the Kings (Aragorn gains +50% damage, but -25% armor)
  3. Gandalf the White (Gandalf gains +25% damage and ability to ride the horse)
  4. Healing (heals units and heroes in the selected area (including allies))
  5. Last chance (units and heroes gain +100% damage, but -200% armor)

3) Resource system.

Now mixed type of source gathering is available in game, easily as mine-worker-storehouse or as a special building (that kind of source gathering is foresight to mine emptying).

4) Unit upgrade system.

Efficiency of upgrading units by means of armour and blade enhancements now varies and depends on the tactic chosen. Also archers are upgraded in one of two directions: increasing damage dealt to units/heroes or damage dealt to buildings.

little question (probably already known) but... there is a way to win the "horrorversion" of Helm'sDeep or the waves of uruks are endless?
Even adding 1 enemy in the southern's spot, and defeating it, doesn't make you win the game.
