Age of the Ring is a mod for Rise of the Witch-king.
It's set during the final years of the Third Age of Middle-earth,
and features content from both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film trilogies
and J.R.R. Tolkien's novels. Our primary goal is to represent the cultures,
warriors, and heroes of that era in a way that is accurate
to the source material, engaging in terms of gameplay,
and balanced around RotWK's 2.02 community patch.

"A day may come when the people stop asking for a release date, when we just enjoy every little new bit of news, and admiring the work done by the devs, but it is not this day! This day, we asked for a rushed release!

An hour of glitches and broken dreams when the Age of the Ring comes falling down, but it is this day! This day, we wait!"

That's why AotR team is taking their time. The longer they take, the better the mod will be! I'd rather wait for a whole year or so for a clean beta rather than a rushed one.

G'day ModDB users!

This is the mod you are looking for if you enjoy high quality content, fun online games, brand new features and a fantastic development team.

I have enjoyed the rise of the mod and I hope to see more of it as they bring out new content and new factions!
