Thread: Battle for middle earth

I'm wondering if they will make battle for middle earth 3. With the hobbit trilogy maybe they can make it base on events during that time. I hope they make one. Any thoughts on this?

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 haven't played that one before, but in Rome, I used a lot of archers to devastate the war elephants. They will get routed before coming close to me.
Believe me, the oliphants in third age total war are WAY worse than the ones found in Rome. Also a great game though.
Havnt played, but like what ive seen online.

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.
