Age of the Ring is a mod for Rise of the Witch King intended to enhance the vanilla game with new content.
This mod aims to:
- Add content from the LotR and Hobbit films, as well as things only seen in Tolkien's novels.
- Keep the vanilla gameplay style but enhance it.
- Include a new campaign.
Current factions for the first demo release are:
Planned factions for future releases are to be announced later!
The demo is now live!
Due note there are no current release dates on future faction updates, so please don't ask.
The Big Reveal: A New Identity
After months of consideration, we have finally decided to change our mod's name: The Horse Lords is now Age of the Ring. We feel our ambitions for this project have outgrown the old name.
Age of the Ring is a name that encapsulates what we want to do: present, as a RotWK mod, Middle-earth during the last days of the Third Age, also known as the Age of the Ring, in as many ways as we can manage:
Build Anywhere! Gameplay and Balance in Age of the Ring
Age of the Ring aims to mesh Middle-earth immersion with existing RotWK gameplay conventions.
The mod is based on the excellent RotWK 2.02 community patch, meaning that we've started off on an expertly balanced and smooth version of RotWK.
We're not out to completely overhaul the game's basic systems: we like most of those, including the ability to build anywhere.
However, we are bringing back some systems from BFME1, such as combo hordes.
The mod founder, RiderOfRohan, is an avid competitive player, which translates to a real effort to keep AotR fair and balanced.
Our Release Schedule
Like most mods, we don't work with release dates. However, we have set a certain order for factions to be released. Below is our release schedule, as far as it's currenty decided:
