Hi all,

Today we're showcasing a bunch of the new maps coming in the soon-to-be-released AotR version 3.0. We tried to make each map look and feel different from the next, with unique features. Some maps have objects specially made for them that won't be seen anywhere else. Others have map hazards that will provide an additional level of immersion and challenge.

Cerin Amroth

Cerin Amroth 01

Made by NJM1983. The Hill of Amroth, last king of Lothlórien. A two-player fortress map featuring build plots for the player inside of the hill fortress. Build plots in AotR are universal, meaning they change depending on the faction you choose to play as, meaning you are fully able to defend Cerin Amroth while playing Mordor.

Ered Luin 01

Made by Fudge. Set somewhere in the Ered Luin, this icy map makes for a great 1v1 battleground. Spot Balin's vacation estate in the northern portion of the map.

The new maps look wonderful! My favorites are Cerin Amroth, Nimrodel, and the Eaves of Mirkwood. Between the new maps, the Dwarves, and the new Lórien units, this is looking to be quite the release for the Battle for Middle-earth this year, and I am anticipating it greatly.

.. I dont like the build plots in fortress maps usually, so will a version of the map come later without the build plots?

No. The reason being is that free build doesn't have enough space so there's no point putting it in. At least that's my reasoning!
