Thread: Battle for middle earth
Maybe in the future, but not anytime soon.
If you're looking for a good RTS, get the game Total War: Medieval 2. There is a mod you can download online that basically turns it into Middle Earth from Medieval Europe.
Google search "Third Age Total War" to see pictures. It's a lot of fun, so epic, love it way more than either BFMA game.
Okay Balrogs, I googled the pictures and it does look pretty freaking cool!!!!
Right? You can even play as easterlings. I HATED playing against oliphants. They're pretty much impossible to kill without losing half your army.
Outside of the "real time" stuff you see, there's a whole 'nother side to it, where it plays more like the game Risk. Turn based strategy on a map of Middle Earth. There are dozens of races to choose from so you can literally create your own story. Each faction has its own customized units too, it's incredibly impressive considering these guys did this in their own time for no money.
What's even more admirable is how they still update and add stuff to it. It has to have been around for at least 5 or 6 years.
I Don't think they will work on another LOTR RTS, also because they have recentely published Guardians of Middle Earth and LEGO LOTR so it's quite clear they have decided to modify their target.
