The honest and simple maker of the Battle for Middle earth 2 mod known as Empire of the East. I am designing it specifically for Battle for Middle-earth 2 Collector's Edition, not Rise of the Witch-King. Unless you want me to make a Rise of the Witch-King version and a Battle for Middle-earth 1 version, in which case I am more than happy to.

Hello, ModDB! Allow me to clarify what there is to look forward to when it comes to the Battle for Middle-earth mod I plan to bring to you, "Legions of Middle-earth"!

Factions

  1. Gondor
  2. Elves
  3. Dwarves
  4. Isengard
  5. Mordor
  6. Goblins
  7. Rohan
  8. Dale
  9. Haradrim
  10. Easterlings

Other changes

I am also bumping up building health to be so high that it'll take a horde of fencers over an hour of gameplay to tear down a basic resource building. But I am also bumping up artillery and monster damage output so they can still tear down buildings in a handful of seconds per building. And each faction will have its own pros, its own cons, and its own menu of strategies to play by.

On top of all of this, all ten factions will have their own style of walls, each faction having a distinct menu of wall upgrades. Never again will you have to put up with an affair of Walls vs No walls.

Lastly, I will be remodeling the graphics of the units and heroes in order to make them make physically photo-realistic! This, in my case, means extensively using Create-a-Hero bits and pieces for ordinary units and for faction heroes!

Release Date

If I can get things done properly, then you will see the very first beta focused on adding the new factions and expanding the Gondor, Dwarves, and Mordor proportionally to what these three lose from Rohan, Dale, Haradrim, and Easterlings becoming their own 4 independent factions. And this Beta One will be out by "mid summer's eve", which I assume to be mid-July, of 2018.

Beta Two will be about largely overhauling the logistics of Gondor, Elves, Dwarves, Isengard, Mordor, and Goblins, due in mid-July of 2019. Beta Three will be the graphics overhaul released by middle July of 2020. Beta Four will be the gameplay overhaul released by middle July of 2021.

Thanks for reading! And happy modding!
