Ares is proud to announce the upcoming release of the second expansion for the War of the Ring board game: Warriors of Middle-earth. This new expansion will include Ents, Dead Men of Dunharrow, Great Eagles of the Misty Mountains, Corsairs of Umbar, Wild Hilmen from Dunland, and Giant Spiders.
With the new expansion, these warriors and creatures of Middle-earth – previously featured only as special Event Cards – will become an essential part of the game, with unique figures and specific abilities.
Warriors of Middle-earth will also present new mechanics to enhance the game: Faction Dice and Faction Events, used together with the new figures, will open up new and exciting strategies and make the War of the Ring Second Edition even more challenging and fun. The expansion is fully illustrated by John Howe, one of the world’s foremost Tolkien illustrators, and the main artist of the War of the Ring line.
Warriors of Middle-earth is expected to release in November 2015. The base game, War of the Ring, and the first expansion, Lords of Middle-earth, presently sold out, are being reprinted and will be available again in August 2015.
