The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II is the second game in the real-time strategy genre by EA, released on March 2, 2006 for both PC and Xbox 360. Unlike its predecessor, the game is set mainly in the northern regions of Middle-earth. Factions include the Elves, Dwarves, Men of the West (a combination of Gondor and Rohan), and the Goblins, along with Mordor and Isengard. The gameplay includes naval battles, larger battalions, and more traditional base building, unlike the first part. The game has a special feature where you can create your own hero. The heros are from six categories, such as wizard, dwarf or servants of Sauron. Also, there are fourteen subcategories, such as hermit, taskmaster and troll. This game has an expansion set called The Rise of the Witch King. It features Angmar as the new faction and has general gameplay improvements.
