Today we're going to look at a couple of new maps that are coming in the next version, as well as some older maps that have received significant reworks.


Coast of Ardumir - 2 players



Dramatic white cliffs and sandy bays form this archipelago near the Umbarian coastline, a shelter for smugglers and raiding corsair pirates. With its many islands, unconnected by land, Coast of Ardumir is a map designed around naval warfare - which has gotten a significant overhaul for the next version.

Many islands feature signal fires, which have been reworked to no longer provide powerpoint cooldown reductions. Instead, their only bonus is vision - which on this map is very useful for spotting enemy ships.



Tûli-mâ - 2 players



Beyond the northern borders of Eriador stretches the vast rocky tundra of Tûli-mâ, or 'Windy Land' in the native Lossoth tongue. Glacial streams course through this hilly area, home to large herds of migrating wildlife.

Kâsalan - 6 players



This uninhabited mountain pass in the west of Far Harad springs to life as seasonal rains create numerous streams, cascading waterfalls and shallow pools amongst the otherwise arid landscape.

Reworked maps



In addition to new maps, we have also been hard at work overhauling many if not most of the old vanilla, 2.02, and Age of the Ring maps. Some (but far from all!) of the more thorough reworks can be seen below.

Wonderful work. Am I the only one who wants a Middle-earth atlas made by the AotR Team?
