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.
A very professional, well designed and executed mod, The Great War 1918 provides a look at the "war to end all wars" while remaining a strategically challenging and competitive design. Total conversions are always impressive, but the execution of TGW is outstanding.
A truly amazing mod. I've played all of the major COH mods, from Eastern Front to Blitzkrieg but this might honestly be my favorite. What makes this mod stand out to such a degree is the way in which it takes the familiar platform of Company of Heroes and makes it new again with a fresh emphasis on large infantry formation tactics and artillery. The sound effects for the rifles and the pistols are very satisfying to listen to. The models and textures for the units are similarly impressive.
I do want to draw special attention to the greatest accomplishment of this mod: The ability to dig proper trenches. This feature was sorely lacking in the original game and it's good to see my dream for this game finally come true.
I am really impressed with this mod and sincerely hope it's developers continue to work on it. I'd love to see what they do with the American Expeditionary Force as well.
Awesome mod...one of the best i ever play ! World War one games are really really rare...and this one combine perfectly Fun with a high respect of history ! Very beautiful models, uniforms, tanks, gas effects and masks EVERYTHING is just perfect .
This mod change also a lot the gameplay too, the battle is now more violent, more epic , the maps are transformed
I really want to give this mod more, I really enjoyed it. But lately I re-downloaded it, and I'm having a lot of graphical bugs (picture an amorphous crystalline black spike morphing around the screen). It's just not playable anymore, I don't have these issues with CoH otherwise. It's such a shame to see this mod go.
