Board Game: War of the Ring: Second Edition
Just a few days after the announcement of an expansion for the highly ranked Eclipse, Italian publisher Ares Games has announced an expansion for the nearly equally highly ranked War of the Ring, with the design trio of Roberto Di Meglio, Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello using War of the Ring: Warriors of Middle-earth to expand on elements included in the base game, in addition to adding new material. Artist John Howe also returns to provide artwork for this expansion.

War of the Ring: Warriors of Middle-earth is due out November 2015, and reprints of the currently out-of-stock War of the Ring (second edition) and War of the Ring: Lords of Middle-earth are both due out in August 2015.

As for what's in this expansion, here's an overview from the publisher:

War of the Ring: Warriors of Middle-earth includes Ents, Dead Men of Dunharrow, Great Eagles of the Misty Mountains, Corsairs of Umbar, Wild Hilmen from Dunland, and Giant Spiders, and with this new expansion for War of the Ring (second edition), 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 also presents new mechanisms to enhance the game. Faction Dice and Faction Events, used together with the new figures, open up new and exciting strategies and make the War of the Ring (second edition) even more challenging and fun.
