No. However, the 2nd Edition of War of the Ring has an expansion that just arrived for it featuring some of the components of Battles of the Third Age.

Note that this expansion is only compatible with the 2nd Edition of War Of The Ring. An upgrade kit is available to make the 2nd Edition game work with your 1st Edition copy.

The 2nd edition rules do not come with this, but you can download them from Ares games, who is the new publisher.

If you like the game a lot, just buy the 2nd edition game. The map improvements alone are worth it.

The design notes for leaders of the 3rd age make it look like battles of the 3rd age will probably be updated by releasing it in 3 parts. Leaders, factions, and siege engines. A great plan after seeing how much balance was achieved by massive play testing on the leaders. I am excited to see them revisit the old expansion like this.

Are there any news about other War of the Ring (second edition) expansions?
