Latest Version! [REQUIRES COMPANY OF HEROES PATCH 2.700 / "New Steam Version"] Eastern Front Patch 2.10 'Ostheer'
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.
-Does NOT require an existing Eastern Front install-
-Requires Company of Heroes Patch 2.700-
NOTE: 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.
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.
We release at last a patch to fix most of the issues detected with the previous patch. Thanks to tungpro9901 we realized an AI code was making Skirmishes more laggy than they should be. Now this line is disabled, you should be able to get more FPS when facing AI. For further information about what was changed, you can take a look at the changelog.
In other news, DMz fixed the ZiS-2 atg, so it now the model doesn't have issues and also he has finished to fix the ZiS-3 as well. We are going to show some pictures of the ZiS-3 later, so for now you have some pictures of the ZiS-2.
It might look very similar to what we used to have, but at least it doesn't have that visible error.
Also, DMz has been including in the previous patches some new map objects, so every mapper can try to make cool maps for Eastern Front (or any other mod that supports them), at the moment we feature these two that were the last ones added in the previous patch:
In some bad news, the new SU-85(with the proper SU-100) we expected to get in this patch couldn't be finished. Unfortunately, DMz and Beefy^ had an accident with his PC, everything is fine so do not worry, so this has to be postponed for another date. But do not despair, the model will be eventually done, just like the rest of them ;).
You just need to update the mod using the launcher, but in case you are unable to do it you can download it from this site.
Thanks for downloading and continue to enjoy,
Eastern Front Development Team

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…

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…
