The planned factions for Total War: Rise of Mordor

Hi guys,to give you some details about the things we are planning we make a little update. In the picture below you can see which factions are planned to be included and planned to appear in the campaign (Release Version v1). In addition the mostly final faction symbols are included.


Total War: Rise of Mordor - Playable FactionsCredits for the background picture go to CordobezWeee


To give some more insight, we had success with creating mounts with the real Mumakil size. We have some minor problems which have to be fixed but we're confident that there are ways to fix it. About campaign map modding and the new Assembly Kit, the tools give us access to many areas of the game and the campaign map structure is very complex. It will need some time to explore all the possibilities but we have already started to define the different factions, cultures and religions.

Stay tuned and discuss ideas and other things in our Sub-Forum at TWC!

Where do the Orocarni Dwarves come in? They're not in the War of the Ring.

Yes they were no in War of the Ring. But we decided to include them. They are on far far east, eastern than easterlings.

Wow, so the map will take us beyond what we've seen in any major LotR game? My anticipation for this just cranked up to 11.

I don't think there will be an actual Middle Earth map, unless CA has or will release the tools required.

What would be the point of this mod, if they would make it on original map?

I really REALLY hope this mod comes out great. I've seen too many mods die/disappear before release; and this one is practically a dream come true. MULTIPLE factions of each race--dwarves, elves, orcs, men, everything. If those screenshots are any indication, this may end up finally being the Middle Earth strategy game that lives up to the epic scale of the films.

Looks cool! One thing you should look at is Balchoth, as they were supposedly all killed by forces of Eorl the young(the first king of Rohan).

So i guess it will be possible to unite the dwarven houses under one banner as well? Would be really great!

4 dwarf factions how beautiful <3 how closely are you going to follow the hobbit designs? I personally loved them and wouldn't be opposed to Ram riders and chariots for the iron hills

If you are going to make the Orocarni Dwarves <<it would be interesting if they were divided by kingdoms, or maybe you think they were to weak to be divided as individual factions [maybe you could do a confederation uniting them as one of the main objectives]>>, why not make the Avari Elves on the lands that were one Cuiviénen, at the lost sea of Helcar?

Hey guys, might I ask what the main goal of the dwarven factions are? (Longbeards, Firebeards, Broadbeams, Ironfists, Stiffbeards, Blacklocks, Stonefoots)

Nowhere, I don't know where he gets this information. The four clans that settled there, the Ironfists, Stiffbeards, Blacklocks, and Stonefoots, were probably still around during the War of the Ring. During the War of the Dwarves against the Orcs, they probably sent troops to help sack all the orc strongholds, but because they came from lines not descendant of Durin, they wouldn't go inside Moria to retake it (and, you know, they were told an ancient evil was in there. The Balrog.)

Will you add any independent city factions such as the city of the goblin king in the first hobbit?

It would be nice that in grand campaign instead of having big empires have small kingdoms or cities
