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....
For the third time the Forgotten Honor community is hosting an intense and enduring event for all fans of BF1918. The new campaign titled 'New Blood' will feature massive, large scaled battles with up to 64 players on exclusive recreated battlefields. Enlist now and start your unique experience today in the German or US army in the last years of WW1. Fight for promotions, medals and honor in your company!

After numerous successful campaigns Forgotten Honor is proud to open the third Battlefield 1918 Campaign: New Blood. During this 9 week campaign you will be placed on the Western European front nearing the end of the Great War between the hard-pressed but veteran German army and newly-arrived American Expeditionar. Will you aid the USA 1st Infantry Division in punching through German lines and ending the war in one stroke? Or will you enlist in the 111th German Infanterie-Division and show the Yankees the true meaning of trench warfare? The choice is yours!
What is a campaign?
A campaign is a series of connected battles where we recreate the timeline of the war. Here at Forgotten Honor it also means teamplay and organized gameplay. Campaigns take about 8-10 weeks and every Saturday we will have one 3-hour battle. All battles are counted towards the final score which determines the army that won the overall campaign.
How does it all work? Simple! In the beginning of every week our campaign management announces which map will be played that Saturday. Headquarters and officers of each army are responsible for creating plans and strategies which will be used for that map, as well as awarding medals and promotions for last week's battle. This is not purely cosmetic – promotions give you the ability to command squads within the unit, a privilege to use special weapons and equipment and various other perks – just like in the real army!
Of course, you also get to choose your role according to your preferences both within your army and within your regiment. Some regiments are specialized in the use of specific equipment, such as armor, artillery, planes or special infantry weapons. If you have a taste for something special, apply there! Within you unit you can say what role suits you best or volunteer for a specific assignment - MG gunners, drivers, scouts, snipers, tank killers - everybody is welcome and every role is important for your unit to crush the opposition!
Every army has a training server to use during the week for scouting and practice, as well as their own Teamspeak channels and locked sub-forums (we call them barracks) for communication and entertainment. Everyone can participate in all weekly activities and events as much as they want – no obligations! And then, on Saturday evening, fighting begins!
So, this is what you can expect:
What is Battlefield 1918?
Battlefield 1918 is a mod for Battlefield 1942. That means it modifies the game so you are not fighting in WW2, but in WWI with everything that belongs to that time period like biplanes, trenches, tanks and rifles.
This time Inside1918 team and Forgotten Honor have decided to work together and create an even better experience than before. The only mod you need for this campaign is the BF1918-F|H mod and then you are set for the whole campaign.
Also, for this campaign the Inside1918 team has created exclusive maps designed for tournament gameplay and they contain special content that cannot be found in the original mod!
