Lots of new maps!

Hi all,


Today we're showcasing a bunch of the new maps coming in the soon-to-be-released AotR version 3.0. We tried to make each map look and feel different from the next, with unique features. Some maps have objects specially made for them that won't be seen anywhere else. Others have map hazards that will provide an additional level of immersion and challenge.


Cerin Amroth


Cerin Amroth 01


Made by NJM1983. The Hill of Amroth, last king of Lothlórien. A two-player fortress map featuring build plots for the player inside of the hill fortress. Build plots in AotR are universal, meaning they change depending on the faction you choose to play as, meaning you are fully able to defend Cerin Amroth while playing Mordor.

Ered Luin Highlands

Ered Luin 01


Made by Fudge. Set somewhere in the Ered Luin, this icy map makes for a great 1v1 battleground. Spot Balin's vacation estate in the northern portion of the map.

Well would you look at that. The Eye of Sauron is FIXED on this Unreal Engine remodel. Soon, very soon, he will send his dark agents and use the power of the one ring to bind this mod into full release.

To be fairly honest, if this turns out to be very successful then you might just inspire modders everywhere to do just this for various other old games that certainly do need a little comeback.

Followed.

Hi. I'm looking for someone who went to Eastern University in 2005. You sat on your laptop around lunchtime (could have been dinner-time) near the dining hall. We used to talk. I think you created mods or custom maps for Battle for Middle Earth, and I think you worked at McDonalds. If you get this message please reach out to me. My name is Eric Martin. I want to catch back up with you and have forgotten your name to look you up. Thanks.
