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.

Download EASTERN FRONT (Full) v2.30

-Does NOT require an existing Eastern Front install-

-Requires Company of Heroes ver. 2.700.2.42-

NOTE #1: 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.

NOTE #2: Eastern Front mod can be played in any CoH game
that is updated up to version 2.602. But you need to
install the compatibility fix for 2.602 in order to
not get a crash. If you install this fix in any
other version of CoH that is not 2.602
your mod will crash. We do not
support development for this
version of EF, so play
it at your own risk.

Problems, Issues and Bugs will get lost on our ModDB homepage.

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 are looking for balancing players to help strength the Steam launch of EF. The amount of content we have coming is huge, and will most likely rival the amount of content seen in Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor combined.

Steam Keys are limited so, so if you would like to join us, you will have to go through an audition process. The audition process will be both a practical demonstration of your skills, and an interview with the members of the development team, you may also be subject to a small background check. After passing the audition process, you will also be asked to sign an NDA.

The NDA will be strictly be enforced, no exceptions. We have a positive working relationship with Relic, as well as an internal testing SVN, and we will not put these in jeopardy.

So, if you think you can help us out, and have the skill and time to do so. Post your steam account below, and a quick little blurb about why you would like to help us out.

~Archaic Entertainment Team.

I love how the soviets are made in this mod--marine infantry are available and conscripts wear pilotkas. The mod still needs new units though.

Units that need to be replaced: Stug H, Snowmen Grenadiers.

Must have units: T-26, Panzer III.

Must have changes: Visibility of the model of the flying support planes, make some units more "punishing" e.g. panzerfausts can destroy medium tanks with 3 hits but cost more ammunition.

Snowmen Grenadiers? You might be using an old version, I'm kinda sure those got removed. As irik stated we won't remove Stug H because it is a Wehrmacht unit and we won't touch them unless they are broken. Also irik already said the PzIII is in as well, in addition even in a lot of different variants.
Now even though I like the look of a T-26, it would be really hard to find a place for it. Considering we have a T-70 which is basically filling any role the T-26 would have filled more efficiently.
What do you mean with "Visibility of the flying support planes"? Are they flying too high?
Panzerfausts are fine and are considered soft-at in game and will remain that way, as this mod is not focusing on a realistic damage system but rather on a more casually/competitively viable one.

I have the game on Steam so it updates automatically i think. And the launcher of the mod says its up to date. Is the StuH 42 not removable from the game or is it your choice (just curious)? Maybe they are flying too high, just was hoping to see them fly over.

Walki May 17 2015, 10:39am replied:

StuH 42 was always in game and never removable it is a part of the Wehrmacht Blitz doctrine. I usually see the transport planes fly over the field. I know however that in CoH2 the transport planes of the Luftwaffe Doctrine are actually invisible so maybe you are confusing something?

Panzer III is already in the game. StuH 42 won't ever get removed because it is part of the vanilla stuff.

You have an outdated version of vCoH. Please activate your CoH key in Steam and then download it off there. Then you should be able to use the Soviets.

You appear to have a really old version of retail CoH. Make sure you update it to 2.602. Unfortunately it's really hard to get your hands on those old patches because patches.relic.com appears to be down. I recommend you to buy CoH on Steam and then install EF onto that version.

I just wanted to let you guys know how happy I am with the mod - It's perfect (I'll let the difficulty of actually getting it to launch slide because I'm sure it's just my computer), as well as stable unlike my experience with the mod around a year or so ago. Everything from hearing the Russians speak in my language and not in some Russian-accented English to the maps themselves.

IMO the mod is on par if not even superior to what the CoH developers themselves could have done if they had added a Soviet faction. Incredibly good and Incredibly fun.

10/10 would rain Katyusha rockets on Nazis again.

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…

Lowest Rated (24 agree) 3/10

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…
