New Hornburg custom settlement! Many thanks to Lord of the Rings: Total War for allowing us to use their assets as a base.
The keep, hall, and tower of Hornburg clearly display their Dúnedain origins.
In the peaceful early years of the Fourth Age the city quickly outgrew it's walls.
Gimli's Dwarves, though now gone, have also left their mark on the fortress.
Assaulting the gates of the keep remains as daunting a prospect as it was in the Third Age.
In addition to the new settlement the other major change to this patch is that Elves and Dwarves are now split into their own (provincial) campaigns. This was done so that we could keep them as passive factions while under ai control but still have public order and rioting a big part of campaign balance while under player control (since those two features happen to be hardcoded together in the same campaign). You can find the Elven and Dwarven campaigns in their own sub-menu.
We have also included many minor changes, additions, and bug fixes. For a full list please see the patch notes included in the download.
Work has already begun on the second patch in the series, 'Cities of Middle-earth'. The next release will feature the dread city of Minas Ithil, long a ruin during the early years of the Fourth Age but now being rebuilt as the capital and chief city of a resurgent Adunabar.
