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.

There is no such thing as "realistic gun sounds" if you've never heard one.

This video will present the basic gameplay elements of the mod. It was made by the dev team's balancers, Killar and Donthateme, using the German localisation of the mod's beta.

Part 1: British Expeditionary Force
Part 2: German Imperial Army

(this is based on a beta version of the mod. Some bugs may remain, and gameplay elements are subject to change until release)
