How to install and play The Rise of the Witch-king




Install The Battle for Middle-earth II

  1. Download and install Daemon Tools Lite or any equivalent program which works best for you. Keep an eye out for potential toolbars and other unwanted programs when installing!. On Windows 10 you don't need it even if we suggest to have it.
  2. Download the clean ISO of The Battle for Middle-earth II - 5.54 GB (Mirror 1) (Mirror 2)
  3. Mount the downloaded .iso file with Daemon Tools or equivalent program.
    If you already have the original game CDs or DVD, however, you can just insert it in the DVD drive.
    If you have Windows 10 just open it and install it.
  4. Install the game from the now-mounted disk image. If you need a serial key, check HERE.
    • Antivirus programs and Google may flag this file as a virus, it's not. The keygen is perfectly safe!
    • You will need some unzip program like 7-Zip.
  5. Download and install the latest EA patch Patch 1.06 (Select the game language you installed)
    Alternativly you can download and install Bfme2 1.09 - Switcher, that contains 1.00, 1.06 and 1.09. Switch to 1.06 if you want play Rotwk.

Install Rise of the Witch-King 2.01

  1. Make sure you have installed BFME2 as per our guide. If you haven't, check the related tab to the right of this guide. RotWK will not work on its own, as it is merely an expansion pack.
  2. Download the clean ISO of The Rise of the Witch-king - 4.2 GB (Mirror 1) (Mirror 2).
  3. Mount the downloaded .iso file with Daemon Tools or equivalent program.
    The process is equivalent to point 3 and 4 of The Battle for Middle-earth II installation. You only have to change your serial key with Rise of the Witch-King's one.
  4. Download and install Patch 2.01 for your game language (use the DVD versions, unless you're still using the copy from EA Store/Origin).

Install Rise of the Witch-King 2.02

  1. Download and install Patch 2.02 - Size 936 MB. During the installation process choose the standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) version if you have a 4:3 monitor or 16:9 one.
  2. Run the game! You will no longer need the ISO mounted, or the DVD inserted in your drive.
