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

do you need the lotr pc game to download this mod

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I'm new to adding mods and was curious if you can run different mods simultaneously? I ask cause I certainly would like to have this mod and maybe one or two others at the same time running.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

You cannot have two mods at the same time.

This mod is simply beautiful,
The new models are a great quality, gives you the feeling of playing a new game with that level of detail that is put on each unit, the new icons are simply a work of art.

I look forward to the rotwk version.

You really deserve the 10/10.
