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.

This mod is an excellent rendition of both the weapons of WWI and the men who fought there. The men are modeled and portrayed well on both sides of No-Man's-Land. The weapons, like the famous Lee-Enfield and the MG-08, are historically accurate.

The gameplay is a whole another world! It adds a totally different feel to the compared to the base Company of Heroes. Trenches are among the biggest additions, along with Chemical Warfare. The trenches have been completely redone, infantry can freely move in and out of it while getting Trench Cover while inside. Chemical Warfare adds another level of death and destruction to the game. Gas can force soldiers into putting on gas masks, therefore hindering combat performance, or terrorize soldiers into retreating. Furthermore, a new damage system has been added in! This makes charging a machinegun a tad more difficult to advance on without losing a good chunk of your squad.

In all, this mod is an excellent representation of the state of WWI after the famous "Spring Offensive." I highly recommend it!

Bloody awesome! At first I was wondering how you were gonna capture the feel of trench warfare, but you guys did it marvelously!

awesome mod, i hope that the modders will follow this mod and make updates and environments

Great work guys

The models are amazing,the damage system has been completely reworked and is now a realistic one which is awesome

the gameplay is slow however, this is the point, ww1 was mostly about static warfare

the gas strikes are awesome


Wow! Only having played for a few hours but this mod is a blast! The British tanks still need improvement though. Otherwise awesome mod!

This is an outstanding mod that converts COH to the world war 1 ear. The mod team has really out done themselves here with outstanding models and maps.

Very much worth the wait

Great mod!
i have to say this is one of the best mods i ever played in COH,
this mod has alot of new units features that i don't know from where to start!
also this mod has no bugs (well i didn't seen any one)
but this mod needs more Word War 1 maps and then it will be more perfect.
and also they need to add more countries like france,ottoman empire,USA,Russian civil war,canadians and more!
i give it 9.5 but there is no such option so 9/10

Excellent. Few bugs, good gameplay. Didn't know the first release of anything could be this good.
