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.

The first eight people than send a PM to the thread's creator with the identity of the thing depicted in the blurred picture will earn a key from one game on the list. The game to get it is up to the winner and the first one who send a PM with the right answer is who gets served first. This contest will have ten rounds and once the current picture got it's eight winners another one will be posted, so you need to stay tunned!

Once the picture is changed we will also post the normal version of it, so everyone knows really what it is.

Everyone can join in this event, just remember to have a registered account in our forums. So, good luck to all the contestants.

Meanwhile, if you haven't voted in the Mod of the Year 2014 event, feel free to do it. If you want to vote for this mod(or for other one) and you don't know how you can follow these steps (and if you want for other mod then replace EF with the mod of your preference).

If you don't use the latest version of CoH(2.700.2.42) with the latest version of EF(2.300) your game will always crash sooner or later.

I have played this mod and I feel so interesting. But if the creator can change skin for PE, Wer infantry and add ammunition include HE and AP for tank to fight with each definite target, I think EF mod will be perfect. Vote for the developement of EF mod in future.

Thanks for your support! And about your request, we don't have the manpower to do something like that supposing we do it as reward unit thingy. And we are not going to change anything Relic made to their models unless they need something to be fixed(like the KT & Marder 3 guns).

It has been a long time since the last time I have played Company of Heroes Eastern Front. For the Ostheer faction, is the Panzer III still available? Does it start with the 37mm gun? Is there an upgrade so that it has the long-barreled 50mm gun, so it is better at fighting tanks?

As in the traits I stated are still true for the Panzer III? Can it still become a flame tank? Could a Panzer III with the 50mm gun upgrade defeat a T-34/76 by itself? What about the 37mm original gun?

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…
