Indeed, since 2018, a group of fans of the game have been working on an unofficial remake of The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth, rewriting all the game code and running it sous Unreal Engine 4. After a first trailer two years ago, the developers unveil a 18-minute first gameplay video, make it possible to become aware of the scope of the task.
Entitled Reforged, this remake aims for a resolution in 4K, an unbridled framerate, and a redesigned multi. The integration of new buildings and units is only an idea for the moment, especially since this amateur production aims with the sword of Damocles rights holders above their heads. At this time, no release date has been mentioned. Patience therefore.
