The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II - The Rise of the Witch-king is a real-time strategy computer game published by Electronic Arts. It is the expansion to The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, from the same company. It was announced during The San Diego Comic-Con of 2006. There are several improvements. The main improvement is the new faction, Angmar. Another expansion is the new Olog-Hai class of costom hero. The three subclasses are Great Troll, formally just Troll in the previous game, Snow Troll, and Hill Troll. The Good and Evil campaigns have been replaced with the Angmar campaign. There have also been numerous improvements to the War of the Ring and Skirmishes battles.
