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.

Eastern Front Patch 1.60

'(Re)Union'


Eastern Front Fans,
Patch 1.600 is now released! After a vast amount of discussing, debating and arguing over these six months, we've made several changes to the Soviets that we hope you'll enjoy:

  • First of all, there is no more munitions upkeep... yes you read it correctly - no more munitions upkeep for Soviet Light vehicles, Weapon teams or Tanks, meaning that you will not get +0 munition income when you already own sectors producing the munitions resource.
  • Second, abilities now cost munitions. Once the upkeep was abolished, the next step was to set up a munitions cost for every ability. Hope you enjoy spending your hard earned munitions now.
  • Third, almost every single map featured in Eastern Front was reworked, and while they can still be changed in the future to make them even more balanced, we hope you like them, specially the new Zhytomyr and Berlin maps.
  • Fourth, Soviet balance was hit hard, after hundreds of games there is a larger list of balance changes, bug fixes and changes than in the previous major patch; also, several 2D/3D art elements were tweaked in order to make them feel more like a Relic faction, let alone that it plays more balanced than before.
  • Fifth, Jagdtiger is back as reward unit of the Jagdpanther and Shtrafnie Troops are back as support unit for the Red Tide.

This update is the result of six months hard work and is probably going to be one of the biggest updates ever made for the Soviets, so we hope you like it. Remember to check the changelog to know what has been changed since the last version. We also have some other goodies for you:

  • Cranialwizard, one of the members of our Balance Team, has finished his Guide for Eastern Front which will surely help new players to familiarize themselves with the Eastern Front content.
  • Rizz has made a web guide for the Soviet units on Eastern Front, it contains the main features of each unit like population costs, reinforcement costs and among other properties that an average player would appreciate.
  • Rizz finished a chatbox add-on for the launcher, you can use it by clicking the button next to "Check for Updates". You need an EF Forum account in order to use it.
  • Eastern Front now has support for Simplified Chinese texts, support that was supposed to be released two patches ago (our apologies), so the player can choose if he want to use Traditional or Simplified Chinese translations. You can download the installer from here.

We also have some additions to the Team and promotions:

  • EvilSpike was promoted to Developer and is helping us in the 2D department, a lot of the new 2D art included in this patch was made by him.
  • Maxiking was promoted to Head Mapper(or Vice-Head Mapper :P?) and is helping us to improve Eastern Front maps.
  • Walki was promoted to Developer and is helping us with 3D art and animations.
  • Ellipirelli joined to the team and is helping us in the 3D department and animations.
  • Cel├ęstial returned to the team as Developer and is helping us in the Balance and 2D department, several new 2D art included were made by him.

Special Thanks to:

  • The players that still play Eastern Front and have waited all these months for the new version.
  • The Balance Team for helping us along the road with Eastern Front.
  • Our community mappers that create awesome maps for Eastern Front.
  • Our forum users at EasternFront.org for reporting balance issues and bugs.
  • Translators for helping us with the different locales, the majority of them are really fast and proffessional guys.
  • Anders Lejczak for his great ME262 model(brought to EF thanks to Walki).
  • [RED-SQ]Cpl.Manu{DRG} for sharing his sound for the Scoped SVT40.

Our life would've been much harder without them ;).
Remember to report the bugs you find in the Bugs & Tech Support section and the balance issues on the Balance Discussion at our forum.


Thanks for downloading and continue to enjoy,
Eastern Front Development Team.

Yes, it should. Although if you have a older version than 1.5.2.0, you may have problems when trying to play online, then it would be better to use the full version.

Are you going to add something new to the Wehrmacht or Panzer Elite, like Royal Marines for the British ? Something like 7th Army :DDD It's a long time before Ostheer arrives :D

@BobbyTheGreatCZ
We are only going to balance as best as we can RMC, then we will focus on Ostheer, nothing more nothing less.

The more stuff we add the less time we are going to have for working on Ostheer. Let alone that is not easy to add additional armies.

It does lots of SU-76, T-70, and some IS. WHY only one middle tank ?

KV series are heavy tanks, not medium tanks. With the T-34 series you have enough medium tanks, not that you need more ;).

@KarmaSamurai
There is no soviet campaign released atm.

You should make a post in this forum:

Easternfront.org

And post your warnings.log as well right after running Company of Heroes with the EF launcher.
