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 two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.
[REQUIRES COMPANY OF HEROES PATCH 2.601] The long awaited 1.20 patch is finally here with...
Patch 1.20 is an immense upgrade, if not re-design, of the Soviet side.
As voted for by our community, the Soviets now receive veterancy in a mixed fashion merging the ideals of the American side, with the unique battle changing upgrades of the Soviets. Along with this all Soviet Units aside from the NKVD Conscripts (now renamed to represent the Penal troops of the Soviet army) can retreat from battle; and live to fight another day - a needed addition considering the new inclusion of hard earned veterancy.
On top of this we are very happy to announce the inclusion of Reward units that do NOT require Tales of Valour; created by skilled members of the CoH modding community. The ToV reward units are of course not available unless you own ToV, nonetheless the EF ones however are available to all - giving a little extra to those Allied/Axis fans out there.
On top of these already large inclusions, we have broken from protocol and set out to balance the vanilla game with the help of skilled expert players, finally fixing many of the long term balance issues seen in CoH.
