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.

From one Game Admin (Europe at War) to another, this is a great mod for Company of Heroes. I enjoy playing games set during WWI since there are not many of them out there. I cannot wait for the upcoming improvements! The hype is real and I love it!

One of the best mods for Company of Heroes. If you're looking for hours of fun with building trenches, bombarding your opponents with heavy artillery, or just "going over the top", you've found it.

This is a COH1 addon, so you will have all the negative and postitive what that game is in this expansion as well. I belive COH1 to be much better then COH2, not sure why, but i like COH1 alot better.

This expansion has world war one weapons and soldiers, very much accurate according to history. It also has WW1 maps, with pre-digged trenches and all. It doesnt have any campaign missions, so you have to play against players or set up fights against cpu. Would be awesome if it had campaigns, but its a free addon so cant really complain. Still, would have been fun.

The trench building mechanic is a rather fun feature of this mod, it works well.

However there is a rather small amount of content, even less so than the base game, its the only downside of the mod really.

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.

Brilliant mod which feels like a completely different game to Company of heroes. The trench based defense and historical unit options mean that tactics must revolve around breaking strong trenches and fortifications with artillary bombardment and tank attacks. I often found the game degenerates into a bitter struggle between two trenchlines across a no-mans-land, exciting and tense in a different way to the blitzkrieg of the base-game. AI works relatively well considering, but teams could use some re-balancing in my opinion. But hey, free mod, who could complain?

You gotta love it. If you love Company of Heroes, this game is for you. It puts you right in the trenches f the Western Front of the First World War. Its Company of Heroes on steroids. Just a quick question for the creators: When will the French and Austrian-Hungarian army be released?

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

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.
