The Lord of the Rings The Battle for Middle-Earth: Return of Shadow. Return of Shadow takes BFME to new heights with 17 factions being released gradually that cover the many armies and cultures of Middle-Earth. So far there are 6 factions Lorien, Dunland, Rohan, Gondor, Mordor and Isengard with the rest to follow over time. Return of Shadow allows you the unique opportunity to fight with many of the armies of Middle-Earth in strategically enhanced combat fighting on a scale not seen before in BFME. The inclusion of many, many new maps brings you to places in Middle-Earth not just the famous locations but the secluded ones as well. The fate of Middle-Earth is in your hands

There and back again! Easter is over! School/Work is going hard! We all are having a hard time, especially when the summer is at our doorstep. Rad/Erken has recently found a bug that may delay the 3rd beta a bit, but it's not that bad.

Posted by micom1318 on Apr 21st, 2009

Muzgash, a new hero that's going to be in the next beta, he'll be used as an early game hero along with with Radbug for Mordor. The 2 will only have 2 abilities each Shank and Cowering Worm which is a stealth move like Elven Cloak.

Grishnakh will be improved and his price raised as he becomes more of a Lurtz rank hero.
Grishnakh may also get a new ability, no decisions has been made yet. There is also another hero, Radbug, but he is currently under development.

Radbug and Muzgash will be playable in the next beta.

Mordor and Harads textures has been retextured. Grimbold's skin is also being retextured.

The UI is also being tweaked as we speak.

Here is some screenshots of some of the newly textured units.

How can I help?
Play the second beta. Have fun with it :) Should you find any bugs or glitches, report it as quick as possible to the forums. (except the slection issue which is being fixed right now by Erkenbrandthecut/Radspakr), Have fun in the forums, have disussions, take part in polls. There is much to do in a forum, just don't break the rules

Calm down, here is some links Erken/Rad set up for us:

Looking good. I've been meaning to give 0.2 a spin. Now that I have BfME reinstalled I think I will.
