The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.

We are reaching the final stages of development before first release and this will be the last update focussing on a starting faction. All that’s left is some buildings, polishing the existing features and wait for mapmakers to finish their much needed work.

We are reaching the final stages of development before first release and this will be the last update focussing on a starting faction. All that’s left is some buildings, polishing the existing features and wait for mapmakers to finish their much needed work. On another note, the TGW 1918 team has joined Inside1918, the team developing BF1918, the WW1 mod for Battlefield 1942. This has given us access to a wider range of talents and resources and it has already contributed to accelerating the mod’s
release.

Now for a preview of the remaining B.E.F. vehicles:

Medium Mk A «Whippet»The medium Mk A is a fast cavalry tank armed with machine guns. It is best used for breakthrough exploitation and harassment.


Mk V tank
The Mk V is the latest model in the line of British heavy tanks. Compared to its predecessor it is faster and more manoeuvrable. The inadequate Lewis guns have been replaced with Hotchkiss Mk I machine guns, and the upper cabin gives the tank commander a better field of vision.


Ordnance QF 18 pounder Field GunThe main field gun of the B.E.F. is the 18-pounder. It has a higher rate of fire and range than its German equivalents, and is capable of both indirect barrage and
direct fire. It can fire a variety of shells, including shrapnel, smoke and
gas.


Ordnance QF 4.5 inch HowitzerWhile lacking the 18-pounder’s mobility and direct fire capacity, the 4.5inch howitzer’s shells are heavier and more powerful. Thanks to its plunging fire it
can easily destroy fortifications and entrenched infantry.


Rolls-Royce armoured carThe Rolls-Royce AC is armed with a single heavy machine gun in a turret. Its armour is impervious to small arms fire and it has decent off-road capacities compared to other wheeled vehicles. It is ideal for patrolling and raids thanks to its high road speed and manoeuvrability.


We are still in need of skilled modders to join our team, be they mapmakers, modellers, 2D artists, etc... You can send a PM to the team members or post on the Inside1918 forum if you are interested.

You had a really good idea to join the WW1 battlefield mod team ! This seems to be a great cooperation.

Only piece of criticism I got is that the tracks look a bit weird on the Mark V tank. Other than that, I really like all of it.

Volch, they look so clean, almost cartoon like instead of being gritty and covered in dirt.

Hope there's a better sense of infantry roles in BWM; Tanks are fine, but in the standard CoH I felt Commonwealth forces where always at the mercy of how many Tanks the Germans had and I hope that the Mk V doesn't come to cause an inverse of this issue, particularly when WW1/Trench warfare was always based on attrition rather than strategic movements, or it could just end, once again; 'He has the most tanks = Win'... just a though.

But looks like an amazing job, hope you get it wrapped up soon. :)
