Forgotten Honor Tournament presents the new campaign playing Battlefield 1918: Hell in the Trenches


Forgotten Honor is proud to open the first Battlefield 1918 Campaign: Hell in the Trenches. This 8 week campaign will feature battles in the Western Front theater from 1914 to 1918. After the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdiand, Europe was subsequently plunged into the Great War. Will you aid the German Empire in conquering the territory it deserves? Or will you assist the French Army in defending its homeland from the Huns? The choice is yours!

The campaign promises to offer explosive, fun, and engaging gameplay. Tactics and teamplay will reign supreme in the field of battle, with detailed organisation, chains of command, and intense regiment-based warfare. Even the newest recruit has the opportunity to become a key part of their regiment by advancing through the ranks and earning medals for their accomplishments.

What is Battlefield 1918?
Battlefield 1918 is a mod for Battlefield 1942. That means it modifies the game so you are not fighting in WW2, but in WWI with everything that belongs to WWI, like biplanes, trenches, tanks and rifles.

FT17 was useless in WW2, but in WW1 it still had a chance :P

As a BF1918 veteran, let me tell you that the FT17 is a hell of a tank if supported properly. Just don't let the infantry get too close to it.

I'd love to sign up but have just arrived at uni - don't really have the time.

what about the vista/Fh42 problem, will there be issues with 1918? 

Loved the mod hate that there isn't a BF2 version.

There's a long story behind the lack of BF2 version... basically not enough 'producers' (modelers, skinners, coders mainly) were active in the team and while lots of plans and ideas were thrown around the mod never really reached completion. We also had trouble getting playermodels working etc etc. A classic tale of stagnation in a mod, really.

If it's any consolation, it probably would have played a lot like FH2 does, so next time you're using an SMLE, try and imagine the Jerry you're shooting at has a Pickelhaube on...

No,there is no issue,just play with Windows 98 or XP compatibility and it will run fine.

You're a talented modeller, if anyone can get actual work done on this it's you. If someone really wanted to get a version of BF1918/2 working, IMO the best way forward would be to make it a minimod of FH2. A number of weapons are already there (SMLE, Webley [may be wrong version], Luger, Lewis, Pattern 14/M1917, Colt 1911, Vickers), as is the BF1942 comms setup (BF1918/1 has voice commands that require that setup). Not to mention the good-for-rifles gameplay of FH2.

If permission could be secured from the FH devs to make a minimod on top of FH2, and the co-operation of Inside1918's community could be obtained, this could actually happen - the hardest thing to do would be getting German and British WWI playermodels into the game and working properly. The best goal to work towards would be a simple trenches-based map with two sides wielding rifles and NCO kits with pistols, and machine gun emplacements.

But obviously, even this 'simple' task would require a lot of work. I can lend a hand as an administrator keeping tabs on what needs to be done in the project as a whole, but my lack of skills and time to learn said skills means I can't really do much more.

Sounds great! Since I downloaded 1918 I was never able to play it online. I'll sign up later this week.

"Hell in the Trenches" - As fun and appealing as that may sound, looks like I'm going to have to pass.... ::)
