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.
In commemoration for all the fallen in the First World War, we at The Great War 1918 mod team have prepared a special Armistice official update.

In commemoration for all the fallen in the First World War, we at The Great War 1918 mod team have prepared a special Armistice official update (which, in case you didn’t notice, coincides with Armistice Day).
This small update is not the ‘mammoth upcoming press release’ which we promised last time, so please don’t worry about the lack of ‘mammoth upcoming press release’ content!
Today we are showcasing our German Feldkanone ‘96, the fearsome field cannon which operated during the First World War. It was one of the most widely produced of all light artillery weapons during the early 20th century.
In The Great War 1918, much like the howitzers from Company of Heroes, German Imperial Army player will be able rain down an array of deadly projectiles upon enemy units from Feldkanones built on the map, ranging from high explosives to gas bombs.
Thanks to all the responses we are receiving from Company of Heroes players; remember to sign up to our forums and check the website for more information of The Great War 1918.
