THE BATTLE FOR MIDDLE-EARTH: REFORGED
BFME: Reforged is a non-commercial fan project currently under development.
Fans revive the beloved and great RTS!
What is already done and what is in the works: After we released the teaser we gathered a team of dozens of people. Some dedicate large amounts of their time to the game (doing something on almost a daily basis), some dedicate a little time. With combined forces we did a lot: We experimented on all aspects of the game and found the best way of creating the gameplay assets. That’s why now we are capable of creating optimized and beautiful models, textures and effects quicker. We can even provide characters with various animations. Though our project is non-commercial we can do things on a high level by paying attention to all details and honing our own skills in game creation. Our programmers have gone far in developing the essential gameplay mechanics. We expect the development speed to skyrocket after the upcoming release of the beta-version with two factions, so adding another four factions to the game will be comparatively quick. We share development updates on a regular basis on Discord, our Forum, Facebook and YouTube!
Features of BFME: Reforged
As true fans of online mode, we will do our best to minimize lags and bugs (we are in touch with pro players of BFME and we can't wait to create and see the auto ratings system, exciting team matches and tournaments!
New global map campaign
Currently we are engaged in creating the multiplayer, yet we understand that many feel nostalgic about the campaign of BFME I and that they would love to see something similar on the up to date engine. Not everyone is a fan of ruthless multiplayer mode, and that is why we hope to create stunning locations of Middle-earth and the campaign. In it you will be able to play as your favorite heroes, enjoy the views of fortresses and picturesque landscapes without any haste or pressure.
Thanks to new shaders, objects in game acquire physically correct lighting and shadowing: elven armor and blades get shiny under a bright sun, orc inferior and dirty weaponry and armor are dim under same circumstances.
What side will you choose?
Team Reforged is made of people from many countries of the world!
What unites us is a nostalgia of BFME, love of LOTR aesthetics and of RTS!
We managed to gather a friendly group of people and we believe that we will achieve our goal as we put much time and strength,
made some success and we are prepared to keep going!
