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.

Report article RSS Feed COH:EF RELEASED!

It is January 21st, 15.00 hours GMT, and Company of Heroes: Eastern Front is released.

Posted by Angstmann on Jan 21st, 2010

On June 22nd, 1941, five million axis soldiers crossed the borders into the Soviet Union, beginning the largest, most ferocious and bloodiest theatre of war in history. This is the Eastern Front.

War is fun to play in a game, but in reality, it is death. We should not forget that. Today, many people are spared by the horrors of war, but are suffering nonetheless. A lot of people wanted to donate money to our mod, and we decided to give it to a charity organisation. We think that the national multiple sclerosis society is a good choice. Multiple sclerosis is a painful disease that affects the nerve center, and there is no cure yet. If you think our mod is good and you want to donate, click on the link below and click donate on the upper right. We suggest a donation of 10 dollars, for a good cause. Nationalmssociety.org

While you download, why not join our brand new Teamspeak 3 server? Download and install TS3, and then come to the release party. It is going to be the central point for all things EF in the future. Heres the server data:

Port: 9680
Password: ef

Also, keep in mind, while we are trying to do things as professional and high quality as we can, the first time is always difficult. If you encounter any bugs or have balance suggestion, please post them in our forums at: Easternfront.org

The communist world fell apart in '89 idiot. The communist countries didn't resort to violence to prevent their collapse so I am not sure what the hell is going inside your head.

I think everyone misunderstood violetblood's message. He was just asking what is the difference between the nazi symbol and the communist one at the time being. It's a good question because some answers might be covererd by hypocrisy. History shows clearly that neither nazism or communism are the craddle of humanity.

I don't think that Violetblood is a nazi supporter, he is from Romania and like we all know in 1989 there was the Romanian 'revolution' which marked the ending of communism ... even if, 'IT' remained as a mentality for more than 20 years among the population. I hope I cleared some of the confusion.

I want to say that I admire the initiative and dedication of the developers to make this mod and I think all COH fans will enjoy playing it.

you are right . I am from Romania too and while i was born in 1989 , i do know lots of stuff about the revolution . it was quite violent . I read somewhere ( i don't remember where ) that communism is a god ideea , but everytime it is applied in real world it turns out to be bad , it fails . Both communism and nazi are evil things anyway .

Really buddy. We don't need to hear your neo nazi ideals here. If you want to talk amongst other neo nazis like yourself, go visit the sewers and I am sure you will be accepted there.

you don't think communism spread suffering? hahaha look at history, look at all commie countries and all the suffering and pain, the NKVD would kill you or imprison you for doing anything the state didn't approve of, **** they were even worse then the nazis, the german death camps = bad..
but compared to the russian Gulags.. their kindergarden.
besides you don't need to be a nazi to hate commies, america hated commies, they weren't nazis, they were capitalists, democrats and republicans.
so your comment failed.
now that history has been corrected this is one awesome mod, i can't wait to play it with my friends, really looking forward to this, it'll be AWESOME using MG42's to take out my friends annoying infspam.. but this time.. it will be realistic with waves of russians charging my mg positions:D YAY!

Communism calls for the abolishment of the state, no so-called 'communist' country has achieved this, what they have achieved is a form of repressive state capitalism. There has been no such thing as a communist state... it is in fact an oxymoron.

After extracting and installing it, I can't seem to launch eastern fronts. It only brings up coh. Keep in mind that this is the first time I'm installing a mod for coh, so I'm probably doing some noob mistake(s)! Thanks for your help in advance though!
