Middle-Earth: Fall of Barad-Dur


Here you are the reworked version of legendary Middle-Earth TW, updated by the famous and respected community from Russia - Imperial Community. This project was created by the good mod team of truly masters (Chamber of Records, as i know). They added a lot of new content, realized the full universe of proffessor Tolkin and introduced us a new quality map of the Middle-Earth. But unfortunately, they left a project and stopped the development. Project was in the alpha stage till nowadays. But for now times are changing.To be fair, the idea of Middle-Earth TW continuation came to me in the beginning of 2016. But i started to work with it only last year. Don`t know why, but better late then never. I worked on it with help of my good friends from the Imperial community. And now i can introduce for you the workable and stable version of this old and creative mod.

 For now its have a new name - Fall of Barad-Dur.Of course, this version contains some great innovations besides the original mod files. We also agreed on this with my good friend Haktar, main admin of the Imperial community, and with other respected modders too. So now you can see something more interesting and cool. This is new Middle-Earth! You didn`t see something like this before. This mod have similar style to the famous game - Battle for Middle-Earth II. You will understand it, when you start the campaign.
