Third Age Total War: Wars of Arda is the newest TATW submod, this time set in 1900 TA, a period in time that has not been represented by any TATW submod yet! Featuring nearly 30 unique factions representing nearly every faction of the Third Age, you'll be able to play as traditional factions (i.e. Gondor) as well as some of the less well known factions (i.e. the Ice Tribes of Lossoth). Save Arda, or condemn it to darkness until the end of days, the choice is yours!


Note that we're still early days in development and we could really use some new members of our development team. Formerly, we were calling ourselves the "Ultimate Compilation Mod" and we're just a minor submod of Reforged. We have decided to begin adding a campaign!


Note also that Wars of Arda is looking for modelers and testers! You can find me on the official Wars of Arda Discord: Discord.gg

Additionally, if you would like to see replays featuring the Wars of Arda, you can find such content on our channel: Iron Wolves Productions

It is! Apologies for the confusion. I didn't feel that the amount of content justified a full version, but I went ahead and uploaded the entire thing for players who are downloading WoA for the first time

Certainly! We are already hard at work on V1.2: The Gifted of Iluvatar. We're updating all the preexisting human factions that we had (with plans for adding more before V2.0).

That is because we are still working on the campaign I'm afraid to say. It will be some time before it's ready as we have a small team. Our plan right now though is to have a campaign for V2.0.
