RotWK HD Logo Renders




What is it?


The RotWK: HD Edition is a model pack featuring both reworked and all-new unit and hero models.

If you like what we do, support the team on Patreon.


How does it work?


RotWK: HD Edition is being developed primarily for use on Revora's T3A:Online multiplayer server.

The most important feature of this model pack is that it's intercompatible, meaning you can

use it online even if your opponent doesn't have it installed.

You will not run into any compatibility or out-of-sync issues while running this pack.


How do I install it?


RotWK: HD Edition is still currently in development.

Today, we proudly present the first Age of the Ring trailer!




The trailer previews the Erebor faction, and, more importantly, a new map that will be included in its release: Thorin's Halls - made by Fudge, the latest mapper to join our team. We've worked with Fudge before, including on The Dwarf Holds - whose team leader Nertea has generously allowed us to use his extensive library of Dwarven structures and map props.

Thorin's Halls


After the Dragon Smaug ousted the Dwarves of Erebor from their Lonely Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield led his people across Rhovanion, over the Misty Mountains, and through Eriador, until they reached the Blue Mountains, which had been a home to Dwarves since the First Age. There, on the western edge of Middle-earth, far from their stolen home and gold, Thorin built a new life for his people, ruling as King-in-Exile in his newly-carved and much more modest Halls.

Being skilled craftsmen of specialty goods widely in demand, Thorin's Halls soon prospered as a center of trade in Eriador, with many eager customers in the Shire, the Bree-lands, and Dunland, with his caravans occasionally making it all the way down to Rohan and beyond. Later, when Gandalf convinced him to set out and reclaim Erebor, Thorin gathered his companions from all levels of employment inside his Halls - Fili and Kili, Heirs to the Throne, Balin, his long-time advisor, Dwalin, his brother-in-arms, the tinkerer/toymaker Bifur, the miner Bofur, the chef Bombur, his cousins Gloin and Oin, investor and physician, respectively, Dori, a wealthy trader, Nori, a thief with nothing to lose, and Ori, a stout-hearted librarian.

Maybe we'll see a release in Q1 2018? I'm still holding off my campaign playthrough.

Considering how much work they've already done for AotR I think that there might be something that got squeezed in for this as well. :)

Let's hope. I honestly thought they would want to get this out of the way first so that they could check the HD series of mods off their to-do list.

I asked on the AoT section before and the response i got was that they arent currently working on the hd mod. Its understa dable that they are more interested in aot but lets hope they dont forget about this.

That's unfortunate. It's kind of strange that they, as I said, wouldn't want to get this out of the way. Now they technically have a backlog outside of AotR.

Hello mod team! First of all, thank you very much for your amazing work with all of the Middle Earth games! It is amazing to see still amazing work being done for such an old, but yet amazing game, with an awesome context! Thank you!
If I may, I would just like to ask if there is any timetable for the launch of the HD version for the Witch King. No pressure, I understand making such work is not easy! But if you have any time table that could be shared with the community, I believe, me and many others would be very thankful :)
Once again, awesome work! Please do keep it up!
