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.

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!

Great mod needs more people to play.
Playing with actual people is the best, AI is lacking but thats to be expected with a mod.
Have a mass defense built up with your buds and start an offensive or which ever tactice u choose once everyone is ready. Good fun :D

After playing Company of Heroes 2 i can say without a doubt that this mod is extremely frustrating. It's not the developers fault or a issue in the mod its self but when playing a WW1 game, you realize that some vehicles and weapons havent been invented yet and you have to make due with what you have at your disposal. This mod teaches you that you cant rely on huge tanks and air support to save you in a tight spot and the creators demostrate this very efficienlty. If play games like Company of Heroes 1 and 2, i highly recommend playing this as well.

I was NOT really amazed.

The game goes you to WW1. Ok. The strategy changes a bit.

The infantry counts and if you wanna win you have to keep your ground.
So trenches , mortars, SMGs, wires are ALL of strategic importance than ever before.

But CoH is already more competitive than that and with the latest changes in AI the game plays more infantry anyway. It depends on the map too.

It's a good experience if you want to have a try on it. But you'll NOT stay long with it.

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!!!
