Expanding on every feature found in The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II as well as boasting entirely new content. The all new single player campaign’s innovative new units will help to tell the story of the evil Witch-King’s rise to power, domination of Angmar, and invasion of the great kingdom of Arnor, home to Aragorn’s ancestors. To fully experience the evil side of Middle-earth, gamers can now play as the all new Angmar faction in skirmish, multiplayer, and War of the Ring modes.

Experience a whole new depth of strategy with upgraded War of the Ring and Create-A-Hero features. Create-A-Hero’s entirely new Troll class boasts additional weapons and armour that will allow players to have even more freedom in customizing their game play. War of the Ring, the risk-style meta-game, offers upgraded army persistence, a new siege dynamic on the Living World Map, and unified territories that serve as major control points.

Mod of the Year 2018


Greetings, companions of Edain!

Yesterday, voting for the Mod of the Year 2018 have begun over on Moddb.com. The ModDB selects each year's most successful and best modifications and rewards them with different awards. This not only brings great prestige to the winning mods, but also greatly increased publicity. And as before, it's the players who are called upon to decide by voting for their favorite mod.
If you want to learn more, you can read up on how it all works url=http://www.moddb.com/groups/2016-mod-of-the-year-awards]here[/url].

As some of you might remember, we have already won this elections before thanks to your support and were crowned Mod of the Year 2015. Thus far, Edain is the only modification for Battle for Middle-earth to have achieved this. This means that we can no longer appear in the Top 10 due to official Moddb policy. Nonetheless, we are grateful for every vote that helps us secure a spot among the honorable mentions once again!

The elections for the Top 100 run until December 10th 2018. Afterwards, the second round determines the best modifications among those Top 100.


Now we would ask you to vote for our Mod on the following page, and keep the banner of the BfME modding scene flying high!

Clicking on the button brings you to our ModDB profile, where you can give us your vote!

Note: If you have the time, please register before voting - it will make your vote count more! Also, we would like to ask you to be honest when voting. Otherwise, our mod may be excluded from the vote.

While you are busy voting, we are far from idle. Edain 4.5 is approaching with rapid steps and we have several updates planned for December to show you what we've been working on - including the long-awaited Lorien Spellbook!

As a further teaser of what's to come, we'd like to leave you with this video:


Thanks for your support!

It would be very cool the mod that apart from having the elves of Lorien; having to choose the second faction of elves, I mean the elves of Sylvan or elves of the black forest.
With all its structures and units, heros and divine powers or something like that. X3

Okay,it's ridiculous,you can only get your hands on a legit copy for some 160+$ and that's just to be able to play SP or LAN,because there are no online servers anymore. So basically anything you could do with a pirated version...
I blame all this on the shenanigans between the Tolkien estate and...well basically the outside modern world. Don't get me wrong Christopher Tolkien has all my respects as a person who brought us the Silmarilion,Children of Hurin and the Unfinished tales,basically giving us access to the expanded world of J. R. R. Tolkien. But he needs to get with the times and understand the potential that could be unlocked if he just removed the stick which is stuck in his behind. I understand that he was disappointed with what Peter Jackson has done to his fathers work,but he surely understands that there could be no possible literal adaptation,it would take hours and hours of screen time and would generally not be accepted by the majority of viewers,except of course hardcore Tolkien fans. But let's be honest,that was NOT the reason he decided to refuse any further content being adapted in modern media. No,he felt cheated out of the share of loot he was promised,which is fair enough corporations are greedy leeches. But this should not be the reason to deny millions of fans from what they really...really want. These are people ready to spend hundreds and hundreds of bucks just to be able to be part of the wonderful world his father created on a new level. This would automatically increase book sales and his revenues would only grow. I myself never read anything from Tolkien before I first saw the LOTR trilogy,and I'm not the only one. He's guarding this from the world so jealously as if he created it alone,oh the irony...
Just imagine if this game and it's expansion and predecessor would suddenly hit Steam,the amount of sales the possibilities it would unlock?! And Battle for Middle earth is just the tip of the iceberg. A Silmarilion silver screen adaptation?! But no,instead we will get a LOTR tv show,which is nice but meh,not the subject of this rant.
So yeah,EA games did a good job (for once) giving us this great game,but there are still things that can be improved upon (needless to mention the balance of the factions) with the steam workshop this could be finally achieved on a large scale. Or scratch that,it doesn't even have to be the steam freaking workshops,the game just needs to be simply available for the general public within reasonable measures,and it could get a larger modding community. But...NO
It all comes down to greed.
However there is HOPE,Christopher's son Simon Tolkien has already shown willingness to cooperate with the studios,which has even driven a wedge between him and his father. So we might have to wait for the old guy to take the ship to Valinor before any progress is made.
I understand that some hardline fans might disagree with,what could be called "selling out", but we need to go with the times,the majority of the kids these days don't even know what a book is,unless it's linked to a popular movie,show or video game.
So unless we want Tolkien's world to become history,legend and finally myth we need to push for reforms.
rant over/
