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.

Amazing improvements. Great attention to detail. I just wish I could understand even a little bit of German. Ah well, I guess I'll wait for the translation. Great job.

This mod is amazing. I love how the team was able to make it as canon as possible while still keeping a bit of balence. The only reason it got a 9 instead of a 10 is because it lacks an english version. It's still pretty playable though.

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.

This is a good mod, it completely changes the vanilla game and adds a more personalized touch to each of te factions. The way that this mod overhauls the gameplay is phenominal. Great job guys!

Two are the strong attributes of the Edain mod. Excellent illustration of troops, heroes and buildings and also the fact that the modding team stays true both to Tolkien's lore and the two film trilogies. Its really a grat add in the original game and it enchans the gaming experience a LOT. However there are some things i didn't like about the mod (honestly very few) with the obvious lack of english text coming first. Also there are some very few errors that inevitably happen when working on such massive moddifications (missing descriptions, balance issues etc) but they are really too few to deteriorate the in game result. Overall a very good mod and one of the best (if not the best) out there!

Battle for Middle-Earth 2 as well as it's expansion follow up Rise of the Witch King lacked much in the way of lore adherence and the way they lumped the many factions into a combination of them just felt insulting to the unique and complex cultures Tolkien created for Middle-Earth. The Edain mod returns not only the culture to each faction in the game but also makes them balanced and unique in gameplay as well, for those who love the Middle-Earth fantasy world as well as the RTS genre should give this a visit.
