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.

Awsome mod!!!!! It has melee, and may have Gas Attacks! (I don't know if they already have it or not)! However I would like to mention 1 thing, WW1 ended in 1919, Hawever in 1918 was when the FIGHTING stopped.

I like this mod but it has 1 con, It conflicts with the Blitzkrieg & NHC Mod making it impossible to play them unless you reinstall the game

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

This add-on to Company of Heroes is simply amasing. WWI featured tanks and artillery at it's best. The game play flows nicely to make it enjoyable and winable. Based more on infantry than vehicles makes it realistic with epic fighting. You can battle on for hours of enjoyment. Multiplay is fullfilling with team spirit. Dislikes in this game...none

Wow free WW1 mod for Company of Heroes? OK I'll try it out....holy hell it's pretty awesome. Wish they'd make a full fledged game on the war, but the skirmish and multiplayer are expertly done. I learned the hard way how much more difficult attacking is in this game. I thought I could steamroll through will superior number like in COH 2, but no I nearly won the game by points but then attacked too far in enemy territory and eventually had my base destroyed... Great mod, and for free!!!
