Post news RSS Lone Wolf: Resurrection

Lone wolf is being reborn into a sleeker,tighter and more attractive package.

Posted by on

Lone Wolf has been in production for 5 years and has grown considerably from it's roots.
Being an evolving and rapidly growing project means there is a lot of obsolete and unfinished things in the mod.
Lone Wolf Resurrection will resolve this by going back to square one.
Starting from the basics I'll be rebuilding Lone Wolf back up from the bare bones.
This new version of Lone Wolf will be greatly streamlined and more polished work.
A lot of the old art and code will no longer be there to add to the filesize and complicating things with bugs.
The mod as a whole is getting reworked into a tighter better performing mod.
The list of bugs and unfinished work for Lone Wolf had grown so great that it will be quicker to start again.
As the code is being remade the original artwork will be updated to bring it to a consistent quality level.
Lone Wolf will now be made in a more systematic approach with one faction being completed at a time.

The factions are all getting reworked all with new tech trees with new spells,units and buildings.
Heroes will be simplified with some abilities being removed fpr balancing and to encourage Lone Wolf's more Macro based combat.

There will likely be a beta for LWR due in the upcoming months with the 4 Vanilla factions.
Rohan,Gondor,Isengard and Mordor being released first with the other factions being released over time.

I'm also planning on releasing a version of the old build with the Current Beta factions as of 0.37.
The Fiefdoms and Morgul won't be released with it though.

Be sure to watch here and the forums in the coming weeks as I start rolling out updates for the first faction: Rohan.

Also a new Lone Wolf website is in the works.

so the old mod will not be finished anymore?
And how long do you think it will take to make this mod?
because I really would like to play it.

With a mod this epic and of this scale, the time is needed. Good **** man.

This is wonderful news, I'm hoping after the polished mod you could resurrect some of the unfinished mods for the other 2 (ie. BFME2 & ROTWK) games. All the best on your restructuring! :)

Such an approach I like.
While from the beginning so why not with BFME2: ROWTK?

Starting from scratch shouldn't take as long as you'd think.
If anything the mod will probably finished sooner.
I'll be releasing the first beta consisting of the original 4 factions in the coming months.
Work is progressing well I'm almost done with Rohan's coding,and hopefully it shouldn't be long till the art is done.
I'm currently considering making LW2 (the BFME2 port) alongside Lone Wolf R.
