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.


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.


~ Mathijs and Rider of Rohan

At what stage is the mod and is it working on it? I would like to see at least one new screenshot

Any chance you could use this mod as an opportunity to reduce the visual effects of upgrades a bit? All the glowing auras, glowing armour, and glowing weapons of regular soldiers doesn't look good. Especially the shiny gold armour of upgraded Goblins. It just doesn't look right. At least reduce them a bit is all I ask.

Something doesn't get an update in a little while, modern Internet kiddies proclaim it dead. Figures.

It's in development, the devs just have different projects they're busy with (such as Age of the Ring).
