About This Game

The War 1918 is a WW1 modification for Company of Heroes, focusing on the last year of the First World War. Currently it features the British Expeditionary Force and the German Empire as opposing factions; however new nations will be brought over time, such as France and Austria-Hungary. The mod focuses on a realistic and accurate representation of warfare in 1918 while keeping a balanced and enjoyable gameplay.

Experience the great operations of the last year of the Great War as Germany breaks through the Western Front in the Spring Offensive; as the Entente, liberate France and Belgium in the Hundred Days offensive. Look forward to heavy 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.

This mod is - for the lack of a better word - outstanding! You can choose (as of this review) between two factions: The Deustch Kaiserreich (The Empire of Germany) and the United Kingdom/Entente. Both sides have their perks and downgrades: Britain has strength in its Armor and tanks, while Germany is more effective in gassing their enemies into the ground (It's fun, I swear) and for those of you more interested in or are more of an infantry commander in WWII strategy games, then this is your mod. Of course, as long as you don't mind or even better, know how to counter several enemy artillery strikes. However, this mod, in terms of faction flavor, is was previously stated, 2 factions. There has been the promise of a French Army and an Austro-Hungarian army, but I am unsure whether the mod is dead or not. Last I checked, the image was foggy. But overall, if you have time to kill before history class, play this mod!



Mod is easily in between a 9/10 - 10/10

It's pretty well-made as far as WW1-related mods go. It's a good 'what-if' to consider if the Germans managed to build more A7Vs, although it would've been nice if the prototypes that they were planning to deploy were included. Here's hoping the devs manage to push through with the Frenchies in the near future.

I tested the game. Really good mod, high production standards, good looking, plays well. Its larger in some ways of scale than the original - a good base for a WWI setting
Awesome job

what can i say about this mod turned free expansion??? ITS AMAZING. this mod incoporates everything ww1. including shell shock, gas warfare and effects, trench warfare, and so on. expect battlefield to be sodden and muddy by the end of a match. great for multiplayer and single player! also dont expect to use normal COH tactics here. charging an enemy base in no longer an option, as it means almost certain death from getting mown down by trench riflemen and machine guns.

yes! you will find yourself having to resort to WW1 tactics to actually make ground, such as shelling enemy positions with your howitzers and mortars before sending your men over the top to make ground.

the games will be long, craters will be everywhere and trenches will mark the position of a hard fought battle for only small amounts of ground.

what are you waiting for? jump over the top of standard COH and enter the age of barbed wire trenches and shell shock!

Broke my base game, GG 9/11

Other than it breaking my CoH and resulting in it not being able to play Blitzkrieg it is a very well made mod.
Trench warfare is a serious thing and TGW1918 emulates it well. Tanks come late game and if you don't have the resources to counter them with AT guns and your own tanks then you are screwed.

Don't give your troops body armor.
Give them all AT rifles and MG's.
Don't bother with Stormtroopers.
Give Engineers Demolitions.
Amass an assault force of at least 6 rifle squads and an officer to boost morale on the assault. (PIPER OPTIONAL)
Take what you can then dig in because the enemy will come at you hard with early rushes and raiding party pokes.
