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 (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.

Nice update and very fitting... to those who have fought and do fight, sometimes giving their lives, so the rest of us don't have, for this freedom so many take for granted...

Well... I wouldn't really count WWI as a war for freedom...

Very good update, though!

Well, you have a point. But it was the worst war nonetheless, and i salute every single solider that participated.

I am very glad to see that there's a mod about World War I. It's extremely rare to see any game (be it standalone or mod) that is based on this war. I'm keeping an eye out for this mod.

Mad props to the team
