Post news Report RSS New Year's Update!

Check out what's to come, and thanks to everyone for the support throughout the months!

Happy holidays to everyone! Today's update will obviously be the last update of 2017, and this article is a bit of a reflection on what this year has brought--the obligatory "Look how far we've come" update-- and an update on what next year will bring.

At this point so far in development, LoME is no longer a mod, but rather a game that utilizes the BANG! Engine. The similarities between AoM and LoME are becoming fewer by the day, and I think that's wonderful! Today is almost solely about the polish, and shining up the game to be as best it can be for the fans-- it's an absolute labour of love to all of you Tolkien lovers out there.

This year has brought many disasters and triumphs, and I'd like to thank all the support this mod has garnered! I've been far and wide to new and old places for Age of Mythology, and I still see whispers of this mod's return. But still a lot of people have never actually heard of Legends of Middle-Earth.

So what is Legends of Middle-Earth?


Legends of Middle-Earth is a full conversion mod for Age of Mythology: The Titans Expansion. Within this mod you'll find the ability to duke out great battles with, or against, great hosts of Men, Elves, Dwarves, hobbits, and Orcs! And fight alongside heroes from across the years of Middle-Earth; including warriors like Glorfindel and Aragorn, or even the small and mighty such as Samwise, or Frodo!

Legends of Middle-Earth also includes three fully playable campaigns after the trilogy of The Lord of the Rings, and will include an all new campaign after complete launch! LoME has more than 600 new unit entries in the code, and includes brand new models, textures, sounds, and more! Players need not fear about overwriting the base game, as LoME comes packed with it's own launchable client application (meaning it never touches the base game, the two interact independently) LoME currently supports LAN/Direct IP multiplayer, but with a little bit of luck....

We are currently working on online Multiplayer for The Titans!


The next installment is huge.. And I mean Huge! What began as a simple patch is becoming the next expansion to this mod! To put into perspective, Aom + TT has two texture folders.. Meanwhile, LoME has three. Inside the New Shadow campaign will have even more content, including dev diaries, art, and some detailed videos on the making of the mod.

Check out the latest Trailer!


2018 is so close, and we're glad its here, because more is coming soon! We also love hearing from the fans of old and new! Please share with us what you love about this mod, whether or not you've been playing since the 2000's or are new today! Share your stories! And thanks again for staying tuned!

Hey I noticed this mod and thought that it is super cool! Unfortunately, I do not have the game on disc anymore as I bought the extended edition on Steam. Is there any chance of this mod being developed for that version? Great job!

There will be a Steam release in the future, yes!
The Titans version of this mod doesn't require the disk to be run. If you happen to have an older PC with the game installed, by chance, it would be possible to play it today! But if you don't, that's still okay. The fans ask, and I intend on delivering!

Hey thanks for the reply. Yeah I do not own it anymore since I got the newer version. Thanks for wanting to port it! I will be very excited to see it.

It's my pleasure to reach out to you folks! The Steam version is going to be exciting, too. Since the DLC is out for the Steam version, that gives me even more material to work with in terms of making more brand new content! The reason I'm not working with it now is because Extended version's modding works a bit differently than Disk.
