So I had a bunch of resources on the old site regarding The Battle for Middle Earth. Perhaps the greatest RPG ever… certainly the best LOTR RPG ever. 😉

Going over the old stuff, it was mostly dealing with Daemon Tools, .iso’s and such… the wayback machine has a good capture of that info here.

Since then, there are some new projects to bring life back to this great game.

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II

The HD mods are essentially texture packs, featuring both reworked and all-new unit and hero models. Battle for Middle-earth 1: HD Edition and Battle for Middle Earth 2: HD Edition were both released in 2017, and both are still getting supported in 2021 as the mod team works on version 8.0. BFME2 even has a version to support the also popular Age of the Ring mod.

Original publishers EA were forced to switch off the official servers on New Year’s Eve 2010 due to the expiration of their Lord of the Rings videogame licence, but you can still play multiplayer games of BFME 1, 2, and Rise of the Witch-King via the T3A: Online unofficial server and through services like GameRanger.
