Welcome to Company of Heroes: Eastern Front!

Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armie as well as the rugged Ostheer - a unique new Axis faction who was designed from the ground up to counter the Soviets s - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

We are constantly working to improve Eastern Front; our dedicated and experienced development team has worked on the mod for three years, and we don't intend to stop yet. The future will bring new campaigns, new reward units, further game mechanics and an overall better experience.

Special thanks to everybody who made this mod possible, including our supporters.

Extra Special Thanks to Christian Werner von Schlippenbach and Loran Dennis Kornis, much admired fellow modders who contributed so much. May you Rest in Peace friends.


Before downloading Eastern Front, please ensure that you have Company of Heroes patched to 2.700, this is vital as the mod relies on certain features from this latest patch. All future updates will be applied automatically through the Launcher.

Download EASTERN FRONT (Full) v2.30

-Does NOT require an existing Eastern Front install-

-Requires Company of Heroes ver. 2.700.2.42-

NOTE #1: Relic integrated Steamworks on Company of Heroes and turned off
the old servers since May 7th, 2013, this means the retail version is no
longer officially supported by them, so from now on, Eastern Front
can be played only with the new Steam version of CoH which
appears listed as "Company of Heroes (New Steam Version)"
in your Steam library. You can add your old CoH key in
Steam, for more information please read this.

NOTE #2: Eastern Front mod can be played in any CoH game
that is updated up to version 2.602. But you need to
install the compatibility fix for 2.602 in order to
not get a crash. If you install this fix in any
other version of CoH that is not 2.602
your mod will crash. We do not
support development for this
version of EF, so play
it at your own risk.

Problems, Issues and Bugs will get lost on our ModDB homepage.

We are warning you now that your query may not be answered by an Eastern Front developer if you post it below. We have probably already found an answer to your problem, so please follow this link to find the solution that works for you.

We are looking for balancing players to help strength the Steam launch of EF. The amount of content we have coming is huge, and will most likely rival the amount of content seen in Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor combined.

Steam Keys are limited so, so if you would like to join us, you will have to go through an audition process. The audition process will be both a practical demonstration of your skills, and an interview with the members of the development team, you may also be subject to a small background check. After passing the audition process, you will also be asked to sign an NDA.

The NDA will be strictly be enforced, no exceptions. We have a positive working relationship with Relic, as well as an internal testing SVN, and we will not put these in jeopardy.

So, if you think you can help us out, and have the skill and time to do so. Post your steam account below, and a quick little blurb about why you would like to help us out.

~Archaic Entertainment Team.

The launcher won't run the game as an application - the process starts and I have to run task manager and click on the process for the application to start, which is proving to be very unreliable. This problem is endemic, I encountered on previous builds... any fixes?

Just wondering, is this mod focused on realism or balance?

Balance, but if you want good AI definitely check out "Back to Basics"! I would enjoy EF alot more if it had good ai like BtB. If all you care about is PvP then this mod is great, me however I like playing on my own time against ai

Our AI is being improved as we speak, ironically. Nonetheless, EF focusses more on balance.

EasyCompanyofFrance Jan 27 2015, 7:52pm replied:

and would be well to add, bury British positions to give the Ostheer (36 pack put in the shelter of Buford example).
Bury also Pak40 and if possible bury the scroll 88mm?
and add sliced too. this is biensur as proposals.

thank you

About the second flak 36 88mm, that would require a new model, but Ostheer doesn't use those and we have more important things to finish.

I think the first one is available somewhere but how would you suggest to use it?

I don't remember if the pak36 was released, but it wasn't meant to be released in EF, so it will be removed for the next release.

For those who know what Company of Heroes is, I will just review what the Eastern Front mods does. Overview: This mods adds the Soviet Union and soon the Ostheer, or the East Germany Army, to the Company of heroes game. You can still play the other factions, so there isn't a need to panic about not being able to play the Us or the Wermacht. Gameplay: Playing as the Soviets can be both fun and difficult. You begin the game with no engineers, and upgrades cost both fuel and ammo, so you can do what…

Lowest Rated (23 agree) 3/10

Simply, the Soviet faction is crap, the infantry is weak and costs too much, and if you actually can manage to play a game online your bound to get pwned by any other faction, even the US could kick the Soviet's ass easily if you could put them against each other. ------------------------------------------------ Update: Id be happy if they properly balanced their own units. Jagdtigers that are weaker than King Tigers, over expensive upgrades and units, units that aren't equal to the resources they…
