The topic of a World War 1 or World War 2 Total War has been hotly debated within the community for as long as I can remember. The technological innovations, the dynamic balancing act of resource management and production, the espionage mechanics and the different types of naval, land & even aerial battles would make a Great War Total War something very special in the series.

Well I’m here to tell you that there is a new game on the way that is set to essentially be the World War 1 Total War we’ve always dreamed of. With huge research trees, war weariness mechanics like nation morale and proper Total War like grand scale tactical battles, Great War: The Western Front is a game set to release next year that I think everyone will agree looks like the perfect blend of a Paradox and Total War game set in World War 1.

So in this video I’ll be going through everything we know about this highly anticipated title, including a close look at the latest gameplay reveal released a couple of weeks ago and give you my thoughts on whether this is truly the WW1 Total War we’ve been waiting for.

  1. The actual Western Front was notorious for its immobility, and now make a strategy game out of it ?!?!? Like what, who can fix the trenches in less time ? 😂😂🤣🤣

  2. Oh for crying out loud, can we stop calling the Germans ‘the Axis’!? This isn’t WW2!

  3. Looks interesting. A major component of world war 1 though was the fact that the Germans had to fight on two fronts (arguably three if you include u-boats etc. arguably even more. Depending on what you mean by a “front”.). Presumably it includes the eastern front despite its name (and going from the clips you show here).

  4. Looks like an enhanced version of the flash game

  5. Psst! It's *Central Powers*, not Axis. And *Entente*, not Allies.

  6. As a bit of a WWI history buff, I have always wished for a good WWI strategy game but knew it would be quite difficult to pull off due to the attritional and drawn out nature of the fighting on the Western Front. But this looks really promising.
    Again, as a history buff, I hope they do give as much prominence to artillery in the game as it was in the reality of WWI battles. For example, it would be cool if you could plan artillery schedules/time tables, counter-battery measures, strongpoint neutralisation, creeping barrages, box barraging, smoke screens, shrapnel and HE shelling, etc. and of course the ultimate innovation of WWI: all-arms warfare, with artillery being directed by aircraft, forward observers, etc. There is plenty of scope for this game to expand if not in the vanilla version.

  7. I always found a ww1 video who sais the triple entente are the allies and the allies are called central powers.

  8. If the genius developers, who made the holy trinity of C&C TD, RA and TS, will make this game, i am looking forward to it 😉

  9. This reminds me of Grand Tactician the Civil war, which although buggy, is better than any total war or Paradox game on the market.

  10. Im sure this game will be great. The sequel will suck because they will have since been bought by EA.

  11. Western front only, and missing two thirds of the fronts and belligerents I highly doubt this will be an authentic representation of WW1, but it might still be the first high profile trench warfare rts.

  12. make a lets play or livestream to that game please

  13. Hey great video, could you put the name of the company developing it in the title though?
