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.
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.
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.

After releasing AotR 3.0 (and 3.1) in the summer of 2018, the team set out to deliver the next faction: Rivendell, along with a reworked War of the Ring mode. The intention was to release it about 6 months later, in early 2019. That didn't happen: our team had begun to grow, and so did our ambitions.
But then part of the team went rogue and started hammering out Rohan, which before long reached a level of completion that surpassed what we'd managed to do for Rivendell. So the decision was made to release two factions, a little later than Rivendell was planned to be released.
Then our man Fudge kicked our campaign into gear, and seeing what he was producing, we decided to invest as much time and effort as we could into it. Testing of 4.0 started in February of 2019, and continued into hours before the release on August 10th.
In the end, AotR 4.0 became much bigger than we had anticipated, and we'd like to thank everyone involved in the process for their time and dedication. The development team, the testers, the voice actors. It was a blast to work together with you all and deliver the biggest release of our project yet.
And thank you to all of our fans and players! Your feedback has been massively positive and encouraging!
We have been hard at work at developing patch 4.1, which will be out very soon. Patch 4.1 contains a looong list of bug fixes and balance changes, as well as a number of new maps!

But wait, there's more. It's also coming with a retooled BFME2 Good Campaign, featuring AotR units and heroes!
We're working on 4.1's final touches right now. Expect a release before the end of the year.
Glad you asked. Ever since we released 3.1, a dark and terrible power has been slowly settling into its malicious shape... Dol Guldur is going to be our next evil faction, with unique decay and undeath mechanics that have not been seen before in Battle for Middle-earth.
Dol Guldur is designed as a forward-base-spam faction, with cheap, one-use builders (Shades) that can be recruited from the fortress as well as Dol Guldur's Ruinous Towers - cheap, quickly built forward towers that counteract Slow Decay, the damage-over-time effect that Dol Guldur's living units suffer from.
Dol Guldur possesses various means to corrupt and bring back both enemy and friendly units as ravenous undead. These Risen Dead are similar in power to other factions' elites (Uruk-hai, Anórien Soldiers), have several special powers, and have the ability to regenerate their health and horde quickly if left alone.
For a full overview of what is coming in Dol Guldur, we refer you to our public faction plan!
Yes. The response to our original campaign has been amazing, so we're going to do our best to deliver more. Work is already underway.
Well, that's about it!
Remember: The Mod of the Year awards are underway!
