LOTR-TW is a Total Conversion for Alexander TW based on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, focused to recreate the epic battles seen in the movies. It has a complete Middle Earth map, fully customised cities like Minas Tirith and Helm's Deep on Battle and Campaign map, a set of Historical Battles where you can play all the major and minor battles that take place in the trilogy, and a quest line for the Free-People's campaign where, if the player succeeds, will take the Ring-Bearer from Hobbiton to the wasteland of Mordor in an attempt to save the world from its doom.
As many of you know the devs are back working on the mod, and just today a new beta patch has been released! With both campaign changes and custom settlements updates! I will not post the link to the file here as it is supposed to be a closed beta, but everyone who wants to apply just follow the instructions in this topic: Twcenter.net
Everyone is free to apply to the beta testing, giving suggestions and pointing out bugs as they appear! Also there is no max number of testers, so everyone who applies will have the opportunity to play and test the new versions of the mod! (and will also have its name in the new 'readme' file! Whats is the price of that! :D)
Here is some eye candy of the updated custom settlements included in the recent beta patch! (Thanks to Nelduin for the great screenshots)
Also do not forget to vote for the mod in MOTY awards!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Lord of the Rings - Total War. We love games like Rome: Total War that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
