T3A:Online - The Return of BFME Multiplayer

T3A:Online is a free custom online server for the Battle for Middle-earth series. We support BFME1, BFME2 and RotWK. T3A:Online integrates seamlessly into your BFME experience by requiring no third party software and allowing you to log in through the game's online interface and play against your friends and foes through our T3A:Online server.

T3A:Online supports all titles of the Battle for Middle-earth series: The Battle for Middle-earth, The Battle for Middle-earth II and The Rise of the Witch-king.

Please read the Setup instructions and see the Downloads section on how to play online - it's for free!
