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....
In this update we show you two new maps for the upcoming release of Battlefield 1918 and the Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 seaplane.

Almost one month has passed since our last update but we weren't lazy since back then.
The first thing we have in stock for you are two new maps done by our mapper Cicero.
In the last year of World War I, German and American troops were facing each other in the Belleau Wood. The longer lasting battle for this scenic piece of France had some heavy setbacks in hand for the attacking Americans. The casualties they had on the first day of the attack where the highest ones on Amercian side during the whole war mostly delivered by the blind storm against heavy machine gun fire by the Germans. This sad record on human losses was not beaten until the American landing on the Japanese island Tarawa in 1943 during World War II. The battle was fought from 6 June to 23 June. In this time the control over the area changed six times.In Battlefield 1918 the map offers great athmosphere due to theforested area and limited sight caused by a mustard gas attack.
After their victory at Belleau Wood the Americans moved on to their next target which was the French city of Chateau-Thierry. This was one of the last important battles that were fought on the western front of World War I. It is called the turning point of the war in the United States. This was the place where the German spearhead for the attack on Paris was stationed since it has been conquered back in May 1918 until they were pushed back by the Americans during the battle on 18 July. Starting from their bridgeheads on the southern bank of the Marne river the Americans approached the German positions in the outskirts of Chateau-Thierry and on Hill 204 with tank support.
Our last object for today is the Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 seaplane. It was modelled by Wegvisor and skinned by Wegvisor and klick. It comes in versions for both the Germans and the Turks.
But that's not all we have in stock for you. So stay tuned for further updates on Battlefield 1918!
