After killing dozens of orcs, the Nazgûl, led by the Witch-King of Angmar, locate and kill the corrupted Frodo to reclaim the Ring. With the One Ring returned to him and restoring his power on top of power new and vast, the free people of Middle-Earth were forced to retreat and defend their realms as Sauron intends to enact a huge retribution.

Following the attack that claimed many lives in Osgiliath with the Mouth of Sauron involved, including that of Faramir, Sauron was pleased to see the orcs ground the city beneath their foot. The road lays open for Sauron's fresh hordes to invade Gondor. Within Mordor's camps, he calls fourth these forces to crush those who oppose him.

With Sauron's forces having breached Minas Tirith by shatteriing its gates and overunning the lower walls, the men of Gondor to the last man futiley try to put up a valiant defense against Sauron's feared forces who overpower them as they raid the frail city. After Saruman has the white tree burned and the throne room captured, Minas Tirith has been burning on all levels with its gates shattered and the lower circles overrun as the dead kings of Gondor watch in horror as Gondor is in ruin along with Minas Tirith as the Orcs hold a banquet in Ecthelion's White Tower to desecrate those among kings and commoners.
The armies of Mordor march relentlessly though the Mines of Moria where Gimli is making his final stand, but he and his fellow surviving dwarfs were not able to prepare their defenses in time while Moria was still dark and dangerous. It is also feared Sauron knew of Moria's darkest secrets and issued an order to carry out a terrible ritual. The dwarves hoped that the Dark Lord's power has not called a balrog into the world.

When the Balrog is finally summoned, it proceeds to kill Gimli and the other dwarves before joining in on the attack on the world, leaving Moria a place of evil none could enter forever as the Nazgûl continue their search for the remainder of the potential victims for Sauron.
The western armies have been forced to make their final stand at what was left of Weathertop where the Witch-King in the past led his geat host into a horrible victory where the northern armies of men were wiped out and the Tower of Amon Sûl was destroyed with its broken stones witnessing a last desperate struggle. There is also no longer anyway to retreat from the dark forces that been ongoing. Sauron's forces proceed to destroy the Gondorian Emplacements with the help an Oliphaunt and a golem, killing many ents and Gondorians who were present. After killing the royal guards with Saruman's aid, the dark forces proceed to kill Aragorn like his father was years ago, ending Isildur's bloodline and ending the last and greatest hope. This leads to a rising tide of malice and hatred bound to overhelm all.

After it was captured, they proceed to continue their carnage to capture the terrace, claiming more lives in the process and capturing the signal fire.
When the fire was placed, Sauron's forces clear the area to avoid the incoming fire that destroys the pillar before proceeding to destroy the elven records while killing any who intervene in it.

Treebeard proceeds to lead the final ent march towards the Shire to try and stop Sauron with many halfling archers hoping to help the remaining resistance for a short time. Sauron's forces proceed to destroy Hobbiton by killing what is left to resist, including the mobs of hobbits that fight. After destroying six Hobbit homes, the Balrog aids in killing Treebeard on the behalf of Sauron. Sauron's forces then proceed to kill fifty Hobbits to draw out Gandalf in order for Sauron to kill him personally with no chance of restoration.
