Edain 4.4 on Youtube

Greetings, companions of Edain!


Edain 4.4 with the new Rivendell faction is quickly approaching now - and to give you some early impressions, we have shared a Beta of the new version with two of our favorite Youtubers xD

Here is RuudDevil showing you around the new Rivendell faction:

And for a different perspective, be sure to watch EliteKryptik diving into Rivendell as well:

Both of them have created several other beta videos as well, presenting all kinds of new things from Denethor to the new Dwarven Ring Heroes. We hope you enjoy them!

The victory countdown is only for the modes, where you have to conquer the settlements/ the outposts.

Is your version uptodate?

Never forget: Posts like this are exactly why we never give release dates, never promise anything that is not 100% done yet, and when in doubt rather stay silent instead of posting news. Because people WILL complain if it's not implemented as soon as possible, even if all we said was that "the Concept Art shows a FUTURE design, that most likely will NOT YET be implemented in the next Edain Patch. But it is planned to adapt it as a 3D model and integrate it into Edain someday." Showing that Thorin art was clearly a mistake and we shouldn't have done it.

To be clear, that was a joke, and also sort of reminder if you forgot to work on it. I'm certain the world won't fall apart without this model implemented ;)

The Game can't use your Full PC-Power... It's to Old...
The Game works better with a Single Core processor as with a multicore and can't use your whole RAM so it shows you the out of mermory Message.... You can have a high-End PC and you have the Same Problems.

It is as Beautiful says, the game is too old, either lower your settings, or play less against Ai or multiple Ai, you'll experience less crashes than when playing pvp.

You could think im exxagerating the value of this mod,but i can only tell you : try with your hands. Edain mod is without any doubt the best RTS based on the LotR series,and,but this is just my opinion,the best RTS overall. While being much more true to tolkien than any other EA's work,it combines great complexity with good-balance in an excellent way. But what,above all things,makes this mod stand out are the models of the units,heroes and buildings,just take a look to the gallery on the site…

Mordor and other evil factions are overpowered including their heroes and ringheroes. Especially Lorien and Imladris are too weak and their ringheros are not powerful enough to be ringheroes (and Galadriel is far too weak to be Galadriel. Make it to be like in the Lone Wolf mod: two palantir and stronger powers, etc.)... All ringheroes should be as powerful as Sauron, because now it's not fair. Almost all good factions are underpowered. Ents should be better than trolls (except armoured ones), because…
