War of the Ring (2nd Edition) gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and experience its epic action, dramatic conflict, and memorable characters.
Throw yourself into Tokein's world by leading either the Free Peoples or the armies of the Shadow. As the Free Peoples player you command the proud hosts of the most important kingdoms of the Third Age. From the horse-lords of Rohan to the soldiers of Gondor and the Elven lords of Rivendell, you lead the defense of the last free realms of Middle-earth.
As the Shadow player you lead the hordes of the Dark Lord and his most powerful minions as they try to bring darkness to Middle-earth. Legions of Orcs, Trolls, Wolfriders and the dreadful Ringwraiths await your command. Hunt the Ring-bearer and bring the precious Ring to his Master, or crush your enemies with your unstoppable armies.
This is your chance to forge the destiny of an age...
