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.

It has a while since we posted an announcement, so here we go :).

Hello Eastern Front fans,

It has passed a couple of years since soviets were released and comparing these faction with the current one makes it appear as two completely different. There are many things to do, a lot of things to improve and patches to release, while we know that our patch release cycle time is not one the best this is problably something that will be improved soon.

We are very close to the 6000 likes on Facebook, and we thought of celebrating getting that "achievement" by releasing more images from Ostheer and what the next patch for soviets will contain. We also have been posting lately some screenshots of some models we have just finished for Ostheer or about Ostheer troops engaging against soviets:





And we think it is fine to continue posting these, otherwise you might think development has stopped; atm we still have a lot of things to finish, mainly infantry gear and some weapons we need, besides the models of the foreign vehicles. So we still have a lot of things to do and not too much time to do it. So, as a token of gratitute for helping us to reach 6000 likes in facebook, we will post more screenshots about Ostheer and about the new elements contained in the next patch for soviets.

As an advance of the deal, we proudly present to you our second version of the StuG III:


Similar to the Panzer III case, our StuG III was a bit inaccurate, so we had to rework it and should be almost finished for now.

Thanks for your support,
Eastern Front Development Team

Sadly we don't get paid at all :P. As we are against any kind of advertising on our homepage, the donated money is used to pay our server.

Our only dedicated 3d/2d artist BurroDiablo made it.

Hopefully Walki will help us with the animations.

Armour skirting is too costly...so we made a compromise and put some logs on the side.

Question here, did you change the weapon damage system for next patch? because when i'm playi'n EF I dont feel any realistic improvement.. if you do, it would be incredible.. or for my suggestion you might work together with blitzkrieg mod, that would be an outstanding mod for CoH

Nope, it will never be changed like that. Eastern Front aims to be as realistic as Relic's Company of Heroes is, so our improvements are made towards gameplay and balance not based on "realistic" damage system.

well at least you should increase range of fire from all of infantry and tanks..you know, in Relic's CoH the unit open fire in close distance, if i count maybe just about 10 meter from them..

Again, no. Having tanks sit in the back field and snipe everything would ruin competitive matches.
