Contradicting all reports that J.R.R. Tolkien is actually dead, Electronic Arts announced today that they are expanding the Battle for Middle-earth II universe, with the Rise of the Witch-King add-on for the hit strategy sequel.
The Witch-king expansion will take players down the dark path of evil, telling the story of the nefarious Witch-King's rise to power in a new campaign. The Witch-King leads a new faction, the Angmar, but goodie-goodies get an expanded retinue for each of the six existing factions, as well.
EA plans to ship The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth, The Rise of the Witch-king expansion during the holiday season this year. Current title holder for longest game name? We think so.
