We don't have any custom campaigns yet, but you should be able to see the changes when you play a Standard Game in singleplayer or multiplayer. :)

Mods should be able to be used on Steam through the Workshop feature. Its how mods work for Skyrim, Civilization, and Gary's Mod.

Excellent game. Units are have amazing detail. I don't like the design of the Elven buildings but hey, that's just opinion. I haven't noticed any glaring glitches. **Just a few problems... After opening the game a few times, it stopped playing 'Lord of the Rings main theme' and replaced it with the standard medley. I suppose that if I reinstalled it, it would work just fine but I'm far too lazy. I noticed that Rohan, as an AI, will build the Hornburg rather than the standard castle for that type…
