RSS Announcing the Two Towers Campaign

In August 2019, we released version 4.0, which contained our custom-made Fellowship of the Ring campaign. It was the culmination of a lot of grueling work, notably by Fudge, our Campaign Lead. Thankfully, it was received with great affection and enthusiasm by the community. So after a bit of a break, we started development of the obvious sequel: The Two Towers.

That's what this article is previewing. It's not a wordy article like you might be used to from us. We're not discussing objectives or revealing the names or order of the missions. These are all going to be a surprise for when we release this campaign. Feel free to try and figure them out for yourselves, of course. We'd love to see what you come up with.

TTcampaign1

Men of Rohan fight a fateful battle at a river's ford...


Like the previous missions, these upcoming missions will be entirely new. Like before, we are adding new things to the story wherever they seem appropriate, and incorporating as much AotR canon as possible. Additionally, we are greatly increasing the number of specially made, custom assets, so each mission will look and feel unique compared to skirmish games.

TTcampaign2

An Ithilien ranger looks out from a hidden refuge...


TTcampaign3

Men of Gondor rally to the defense of a city under attack...


The Two Towers campaign will cover familiar events (sometimes from a new perspective), but will also let you experience parts of the story that have never been translated to a video game before.

TTcampaign4

Wraiths on Wings...


Each of these missions is in development. We are continuing the trend of challenging, strategic gameplay that we started during the Fellowship of the Ring, so remember to save often!

TTcampaign5

The Four Hunters!?


TTcampaign6

Sounds like orc mischief to me...


That's all for now. Expect more news coming soon.

Yours,
The Age of the Ring Team

So a Ford of Isen mission, Gap of Rohan, Ithilien, Osgiliath, Fangorn, Dead Marshes, Helms Deep and fall of Isengard should be the last one then.

I understand you want to keep the campaign details a surprise for now but can you give us a hint on how many missions there will be for TTT? As many as FotR (10) or more/fewer?
Keep up the good work!

We aren't really intending to do much at all to the FOTR? There might be a few tweaks or bug fixes but nothing major.

Corrigan, baby!
you will make more team points for hiring units on the fortress maps, 1000 is too small to fight back against the enemy, is it possible to raise this figure to 3000?
it is very difficult to fight back and even more unrealistic to win, I can't even reach the Marshall fortress:D

and a question about your new Helma Fortress map, will it be in the battle maps?
