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.
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.
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.
Fords of Carnen
Made by Fudge. The Carnen (or Redwater) flowed south from the Iron Hills. An atmospheric 2-player map.
Made by NJM1983. Set along the southern coasts of Haradwaith, this 3-player map features a variety of new AotR features: Jungle trolls, wild and roaming Mûmakil, a map hazard in the form of scorching heat, and custom palm tree models made specially for this map.
Made by Fudge. A deep north-south valley cut from the White Mountains by the Snowbourn river. Harrowdale is a 3-player map featuring varied terrain and lots of passageways you can use to surprise your opponent.
Made by Fudge. An inhospitable marshland infested with biting insects such as the Midge Cloud map hazard and other discomforts. This map supports up to 5 players.
Made by Tomasz_exe. An 8-player map set on the borders of Mirkwood forests. It features a set of new autumnal trees.
Made by Fudge. A 5-player map set around the Nimrodel river in Lothlórien. A beautifully lit map featuring various new types of vegetation made for AotR.
