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.
Very well done. Fantastic atmosphere, attention to detail and gameplay. The trench system is very well done and the introduction of gas is a fantastic edition. While it has its flaws - the AI not building enough defences (something I don't think can be fixed) it more than makes up for it.
Eagerly awaiting any future releases!
Accomplishing what no other mod has done before, The Great War brings WWI to life with great variety of combat. It allows you to fight it out in the trenches or engage in the mobile combat that characterized the great breakthroughs of the last German offensive. Good variety of units and specially made maps makes it obvious the amount of effort the team put into this mod. This is enough to give this a 10, but the mod was also very easy to install and runs just fine after CoH converted to Steam servers.
A Great Mod for the Great War.
