Battlefield 1918 is a total conversion modification for Battlefield 1942. The mod takes Battlefield 1942 into a whole new scenario, the first world war. Next to historically correct equipments and vehicles, we try to recreate the atmosphere of these WW1 battlefields as close as we can, keeping in mind the game we're working with. To achieve this, we've drastically changed the gameplay from the original game like so that you must now rely on teamwork, artillery, trenches and slow vehicles....

It is now time to show you a few new features of the upcoming MR 3 of Battlefield 1918 - a map preview, a gunboat and a small video. So hurry boy, it is waiting there for you!

Posted by on

First things first: The work on the Major Release 3 is nearly finished. However, we decided not to announce a official release date (yet), but expect Battlefield 1918 3.0 to be released sometime this week.

Now, on to the promised features. Number one is a gunboat of the Insect Class:

Insect Class Gunboat

Those ships were designed to be able to operate in shallow rivers or inshore. Although they were intended for use on the Danube, the Royal Navy used them first during the World War I Mesopotamian Campaign.

Talking about rivers: Our next map preview shows you two screenshots of a battle taking place along the banks of the sanaga river in Cameroon.

You will fight in the African jungle either as a soldier of Senegal or as a Askari on this map.

Last but not least, please have a look at this video:

It shows you how to call-in an artillery barrage using a kit. Basicially you pick up that kit (looking like a binocular), and by clicking the left mouse button, you call in a devastating artillery barrage at the desired location. Due to the enormous fire power you can direct by using this kit, you will only find it on very few maps (e.g., as shown in the video, on the Hindenburg Line map).

Allright, you guys know the drill: Stay tuned, for the time of waiting shall be over soon!
