About Battle for Middle-earth with 2 comments by kingfudgington on Nov 9th, 2014

This is the first of my campaign remake maps that requires a mod to work, I believe that without the extra heroes, buildings and units added in TEA:CE the map is far less enjoyable. Therefore I must credit both Celegin and the TEA:CE team for an excellent mod. If you wish to activate and thereby add Gandalf to the map please read the notes at the bottom. The download is located in the addons section.

Map Description

This map follows the same format as the original with the exception of extra objectives during the journey to Caras Galadhorn & a much larger goblin army. In terms of differences that's as much as I'm willing to divulge.

Here's a selection of screenshots fx2g.jpg

Actually there are 3 new factions, Elves, Dwarves and Goblins. And you now have the oppotunity to make walls and buildings whereeva. And you can also have sea battles.

It was announced on July 25 that there will be a new installment from EA in the BFME series. It adds two new factions: Elves and Dwarves, and adds battles that were never seen in the movies, but are inspired by the books. I'M SO PUMPED!!

Chack out for more details!

Anyone able to do a Camera Mod for this?

I would like to be able to zoom out a bit farther than the game allows by default. It feels a bit cramped as it stands.

Haha. That would be an interesting sight to behold! Sounds like another Command and Conquer esque alternate reality.

I wanted to explore the possibility of ADDING the Rise of Rome units into the game instead of replacing the current BFME races/units. That way we can have all the current BFME races plus the races from Rise of Rome all in one great battle!

Ideally I envision Isengard forces under siege by the Roman Army or Gondor pitted against Germania.

Game is released, profile should be updated.

Anywho, not a bad game I guess. I didn't really like it, not my style of RTS.
