About this mod

The Dawnless Days is a total overhaul mod for Total War: Attila based on the Tolkien Legendarium. The project brings to life the peoples, places and events of Tolkien's world loved and cherished by fans all around the world, and is set in the time of the great wars of the final years of the main books.

The Dawnless Days: Total War is being created by a collective of motivated individuals that are willing to learn, are loyal to the mod's development and share a passion for Tolkien’s inspiring franchise with the final goal of creating a custom "Lord of the Rings" campaign, set in the immense world of Middle Earth. While it was more difficult than ever to take up this long quest, we are growing stronger with every release.

Besides highly-detailed units, which are the hearts and souls of Total War, we are also actively designing battlefield and settlement maps (land and siege battles), with custom architecture (such as Gondorian) depicting both new and known and loved settlements such as Helm's Deep. Moreover, we also plan to include custom creatures such as trolls (already included), wargs and mûmakil - with custom animations made by our team (we lack animators, so be patient!).

Currently, due to the early stage of development, The Dawnless Days focuses on the multiplayer aspects of Total War; however, enormous progress has been achieved in reaching our main goal: a total overhaul campaign set in Middle Earth during the War of the Ring. There is currently no estimation for the release of the campaign, but we encourage any artist (2D, 3D, animator or level designer) to join our Discord and apply to our team.
