About This Game

The War 1918 is a WW1 modification for Company of Heroes, focusing on the last year of the First World War.

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.

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?
