The RTS- series ‘Battle for Middle-Earth‘, based on the Tolkien-created LOTR- universe are among the best strategy games ever made AND perhaps the best using Warner Bros.’ license.

The footage above is the first gameplay reveal of the enthusiasts- based remade project. It’s based on the first game in the series, released 2004 by EA. A sequel(BFME2) and an expansion to the sequel(The Rise of the Witch-king) followed the original.

The license went back to Warner Bros. in 2008, so ‘Battle for Middle-Earth: Reforged’ could become the closest thing to a remaster for at least a couple of years. The makers state that this is a non-commercial fan project currently under development. It introduces “Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth” to a brand new game engine – Unreal Engine 4.
