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.

I've played a few mp games, one game was amazing, true trench warfare (the other player was a novice like me). However the other games either used too many mortars or just sent too many men in at once. Please, reduce the efficiency of the mortars (either by extending the reload time, the damage, or best, decrease the accuracy). Secondly, please increase the effectiveness of the trenches and increase the damage caused to soldiers out in the open. This I believe would not just make the game more enjoyable, it would also be more historically accurate.

Honestly the enemy spammed Tanks as the Brits and armored cars/canyons as the Germans. My allies were random and completely unhelpful for the most part, I refused to work with them when they behaved foolishly.

Despite all of this, I was impressed during my five hours of solid gameplay. The trenches worked, I wished the other sides used them just once but they worked. Artillery is annoying to face and powerful, so long as you know where the enemy is. Gas is hit or miss, but that's how it's meant to be. Tanks are slow but effective if used right. Squads are large and hard to upgrade.

The Brits are easy to resupply and have better tanks, but the Germans have better supports.

If France was added as it's planned to be and the AI gets smart enough to use actual infantry on both sides, rather then builders with machines; this mod would get a ten. I assume it will get there soon enough

Its a really fun mod, that has much to offer. Its depth even goes as far as nearly being hard to distinguish from a DLC. However it could use a option to deactivate in-game tanks, as they are a huge nuisance to the overall play ability if you want to have a play style that heralds to earlier 1914 as this would allow a more garden variety atmosphere. I endorse the mod overall though it still NEEDS tweaks.

The mod is a very well made combat feels accurate guns sound good and tanks are well made the mod is also very balanced.

Nice to see a dedicated dev team on a mod on WWI, 1 century after the beginning of the Great War, not so often portrayed in games. Keep up the good works !
