What is it?

The BFME2: HD Edition is a model pack featuring both reworked and all-new unit and hero models.

Our primary goal is to preserve the distinctive style of BFME2's models

while thoroughly polishing them up.

If you like what we do, support the team on Patreon.

How does it work?

BFME2: HD Edition is being developed primarily for use on Revora's T3A:Online multiplayer server.

The most important feature of this model pack is that it's intercompatible, meaning you can

use it online even if your opponent doesn't have it installed.

You will not run into any compatibility or out-of-sync issues while running this pack.

How do I install it?

Simply download the file HERE and run the installer!

After that, click the HD Edition shortcut on your desktop to run!

Future packs for BFME1 and RotWK are planned.

~ Rider of Rohan and Mathijs
