The Great War Mod Adds World War I Tactics to Napoleon Total War
Fans of Napoleon: Total War have pooled together their creative resources to come up with a mod called The Great War, a total conversion for the title. Its aim is to create an authentic representation of World War I-era tactics, strategies and general warfare using Napoleon: Total War as a base.
In development for over 3 years, the mod adds 150 new models, hundreds of new units, and a host of custom WWI battle maps.
Watch as waves of battalions advance under the cover of massed artillery barrages and deadly poison gas, or stay play it safe hidden behind their defenses. Machineguns will brutally mow down uncareful attackers and defenses are manned by thousands of troops, armed with rapid breech-loaded rifles.
SMG Infantry, flamethrowers, snipers and elite Stormtroopers are a few among the many units that attempt to break the stalemate, while the sheer industrial output of all combatting nations – and the density of forces along most fronts – ensure that advances are measured in metres, not in the grand distances of earlier days. Commanders must learn to control massive battles, where audacity and wit must overcome seemingly impossible odds.
If you think that sounds cool, you can grab the mod from ModDB.
