This is a (skirmish) mod created with the intention to bring the feeling of the Lord of the Rings & Hobbit movies into the old RTS game Battle for Middle Earth II, and add "realism" through new models and severe re-balancing of the entire game! BETA 4.5 was released in Nov 2007. New version, "Director's Cut" is under development... ///Nazgûl of The 3rd Age Forums

S.E.E. - Director's Cut & the BfME 3 Prank

G’day fans of The Special Extended Edition,
Today’s news article is a unique one, but late. Many fans across the globe mourn the tricksy April Fool’s Joke, announcing the development of The Battle for Middle-earth III, The Battle of the Five Armies. In case you missed it, here is the ‘official’ press release.

Nazgûl's involvement

What fans of The Special Extended Edition can know, behind the scenes of this prank, is that Nazgûl, creator of S.E.E., as in on the joke! Below you may view the concept art featured on the BfME3 page, created by Nazgûl himself. Despair not for BfME3 but rejoice because S.E.E. – Director’s Cut will have these incredible models as part of the Misty Mountains faction. Consider this BfME3 concept art a teaser for what you will see in the coming months. Stay posted for more news.

That is all I can tell you of Nazgûl’s contribution to the prank. View the rest of the BFME3 concept art on the official website. Is it possible that other mods hosted by The Third Age, Revora Forums have concept art featured there?
