The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth allows the player to go through the campaigns of Good and Evil occurring during the War of the Ring, as shown in Peter Jackson’s trilogy, with small game deviations. Each campaign has its own ending. The Free Peoples (Gondor and Rohan) focus on a variety of heroes, such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Theoden, Eomer, and others. The forces of Darkness (Mordor and Isengard) depend mainly on their hordes of orcs, Uruk-Hays, evil people, and monsters like trolls and mummies. Also, battalions of Good forces usually contain fewer soldiers than hordes of Evil, but their forces are approximately equal – people are much better trained and equipped than orcs and uruk-hai.
The good campaign begins in Moria, where the player must kill Balrog in a one-on-one duel with Gandalf the Gray. After that, Gandalf becomes White and gets extra abilities. The final battle of the Good campaign, as in Fortnite game, is attacking the Black Gate of Mordor to give Frodo time to destroy the Ring of All-Power. The campaign of evil begins with the cutting down of trees in Isengard and the first open skirmish with Rohan and ends with the siege of Minas Tirith.
