Battlefield 1918 is a total conversion modification for Battlefield 1942. The mod takes Battlefield 1942 into a whole new scenario, the first world war. Next to historically correct equipments and vehicles, we try to recreate the atmosphere of these WW1 battlefields as close as we can, keeping in mind the game we're working with. To achieve this, we've drastically changed the gameplay from the original game like so that you must now rely on teamwork, artillery, trenches and slow vehicles....

Posted by |FF|rocksau86 on Jul 3rd, 2008

Well, what else is left to say? You read the texts. You looked at the pictures. You watched the videos. And now, finally, after all these months of work, Inside1918 is proud to announce that can now play Battlefield 1918 Major Release 3.0!

Let us not waste any more words. You guys know the drill. Get the installer. You all know you want it!

(For more mirrors besides this one please refer to the corresponding section in our mod's summary! We will try to keep that list always up-to-date.)

Note that this is a full client and therefore NOT a patch. That means that you MUST DELETE ANY OLDER VERSION OF BATTLEFIELD1918 BEFORE YOU RUN THE INSTALLER!

Please scroll down until the end of the text for the complete changelog.

A few more pics and stuff:

While you are downloading (which you should be doing right now...), please have a look about a few informations we would like to show you:

First of all, here are two final map previews, this time for Cantigy - one of the maps where the Doughboys engage the German fortification. This map is a classical trench warfare map.

Map Preview: Cantigny

(told you there is no BF1918 news without pictures...)

Did I already mentoined you should download the mod now?

About servers & a event:

We also now have our own server, provided by

Detailed stats, a ranking and stuff like that can also be seen here:

Who we would like to thank:

Inside1918 would like to thank the creators of Battlegroup42, Norwegian Resistance and Forgotten Hope for giving us both a helping hand everytime we needed it and their permission to use some of their content in our mod. Very special thanks go to BOMMEL and SARGE31FR from Battlegroup42 - guys, without you, certain things in the mod would not run as smoothly as they do now. Danke!

Very very special thanks go to Grauer Wolf, leader and founder of, for allowing us to use his server, and therefore keeping BF1918 alive.

Note that we used some airplane models of a fantastic, yet unfortunaly dead BF1942 mod called "The Great War". We did not manage to get in contact with the developers of this mod; if we could, we asked before we used other people's creative work. However, we think that they would like the idea of keeping some of their great models alive by using them in our mod. Just in case we are wrong, please let us know.

None taken. But it is dead.
And it was not our mod either; we (Inside1918) are only involved in the development of BF1918 for Battlefield 1942.
