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 is one of the best mods I've ever played. Great graphics, great gameplay, and great abilities, with great infantry and vehicles to choose from. And I'm really excited to see the French.

I would give 10/10 if cannons,tanks and everything that isn't infantry squad would have a lower price.

WW1 was a very big war. I expected a slow advance to cost huge amount of losses,but also with HUGE armies.

This is very personal,whenever. I still cant understand how the cheatmode works.

The mod is awesome! It also introduces something new - The Great War! The Allied and Central Starting Factions (UK and GE) are good. One thing thta I like is that there is a change in playing style. You cannot always rush.

i think it is a great game and has a great idea to it there are very few WW1 games out there and much less ones that take place in a RTS gameplay style

I seldom use my account on moddb, but I had to for this mod, its ******* amazing.
The revamped damage modifiers for all weapons and the ability to construct long trenches (like walls in age of empires) manned by simple, and not overdone, infantry platoons make the defensive aspect of ww1 come alive.
Tanks are the slow and lumbering beasts that they once were and along with mortars and artillery, the only effective way to break a defensive line.
I warmly recommend this mod to you peasants.

COH has had a few excellent mods and this one takes the cake as the best one of them all. This mod took years of effort and it shows as almost every unit and doctrine show amazing levels of detail. I am a big fan of the grand offensive mode and its ability of creating huge battlefields that take long amounts of time to resolve, giving it a WW1 feel to it. The only problem I have with the mod is the trench system can give problem to my units pathfinding, this has led to my units dying a bunch of time. Besides that little problem, this mod is easily the best one that a COH owner can download.

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.
