The Edain Mod aims to take you deeper into Middle-Earth than ever before and create a game worthy of Tolkien's books and Peter Jackson's movies. In our quest for lore accuracy, visual quality and deeper gameplay, we overhauled every aspect of the original game to craft a new, immersive Lord of the Rings experience. Discover the new factions of Lothlorien and Rohan, field new units and heroes for each of the existing factions, enjoy a visual style closer to the movies and unleash the power of the One Ring with individual Ring heroes for every factions. Light or Shadow, Defender or Conqueror... the choice is yours.

Absolutely the best mod. I've been waiting hopelessly for third part of the game, and for me, this is it, and even more! Thank you guys!

Absolutely phenomenal mod, feels as though it is actually its own stand alone game. Obviously for us English users the German is a problem at first but if you have played the game before you don't really need to know all that much more to get through. Brilliant achievement and it is still going!

Probably the best rotwk mod out there, the only thing that may be a little strange is that its all in german, aber es ist immer noch sehr gut.

It's the best mod i've ever play on BFMEII
It was hard because it's in german but finally It's fun
There only on ething that i want to say, i think that a men of east faction would be good for the next version and an improved xar of the ring map with more territories

It is quite clear that the makers of this mod put great effort as a team and individually into the creation of each element of the mod. The skins are beautifully done, and even though the mod is still currently German Only, playing in Skirmish does allow you to play the guess and check game to learn things on your own. Overall a great new take on BFMEII: RoTWK, I eagerly await the English Translation so that I'll enjoy the mod even more.

Edain does so many things better than the vanilla game did.

Ring Heroes: More than two! That's already an improvement! While some of them do need work (Radagast is a little boring), most are a real joy to use (Elrond is my favorite). There's a real incentive to find the ring, as they are all quite powerful in their own way, but they're not completely game-breaking. Having a ring hero gives you a real visceral feeling of power. Watching The Lord of the Rings stride across the battlefield in all his terrible splendor is very satisfying.

Regular Heroes: There's so many of them! And they're not one size fits all, certain heroes are going to do significantly better in certain situations than others, so there's an incentive to invest in multiple heroes. And heroes play to the strengths of their faction. Rohan has powerful cavalry buffers like Theoden and Eomer, and Gondor has powerful nukes and neutralizers like Gandalf and Boromir to clear the way for the shining ranks of Gondor's finest.

Faction diversification: Each faction has their own strengths. Imladris has the best infantry, Lorien has the best archers, Rohan has the best cavalry, etc. You can't play every faction with the same strategy; you have to play to their strengths to win.

Developer involvement: The Edain team is terrific about interacting with their fans. Thanks a bunch, guys.

It's just plain great.

This mod made the best game even better. I highly recommend it for those who own BFME2 ROTWK. Adds more detail and things from the books never seen in any E.A. game before. Best mod and best game.
