What the mod does

Pretty simple, you get to play WW1 instead of WW2. You can start in 1910 and fight your way through the Italian-Ottoman war and the Balkan wars, or jump straight into the action in January 1914 in preparation for the main event. The events, leaders, ministers, governments, orders of battle, tech tree, units, graphics, game mechanics and AI have all been rewritten.

Game features include:

  • Units will dig in much more effectively meaning stalemates happen much more frequently to simulate trench warfare.
  • Naval battles are more action packed as Dreadnoughts clash and there are (nearly) no aircraft carriers.
  • Military aviation is in its infancy but quickly becomes more important as the war progresses
  • The mod includes stormtroopers, zeppelins, gas warfare and submarines
  • Special scenarios for the Spring Offensive and Gallipoli campaign
