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.

Hello comrades,

This weekend we have to show the reward tree that was supposed to come last week; this time is for the Ostheer faction and replaces the Army Elite Troops tree. The internal name we have for the tree is "Defenders of Budapest". Enjoy it!

LHS - Germany's Endgame

2CP - Burn them out!

Grant multiple Ostheer units access to incendiary ammunition. Panzerwerfer gains incendiary ammo, Sturmpios can throw brandflasche(molotov), LeIG 18s and mortars can fire incendiary rounds and the mortar as well.

2CP - Battle Hardened Crews

Allows your vehicles to gain veterancy at a faster rate.

5CP - Schwerer Panzergruppe detachment (1100 MP)

Call in a King Tiger accompanied by 2 ace veterancyt Surmpioniere squads able to repair under fire more efficiently.

LHS - Hungary's Finest

1CP - Fortify yourselves! (75 MU)

The moment you activate this ability, all units in cover or inside buildings won’t be able to move (or move at a slower pace), but won’t die to artillery or explosives, and take reduced damage from small arms fire. This ability is short, but should be able to protect you for a little while from your own artillery or enemy grenades and the like. Duration is around 8 to 12 seconds.

3CP - Hungarian Battlegroup (900 MP)

Request a Zrinyi II SPG and a Border Guard squad. The Zrinyi II has a 105 mm howitzer, and it is designed to fit the role of infantry support vehicle. The Border Guards are a 5-man squad that come equipped with two panceltoro rocket launchers and three M43 Danuvia smgs.

3CP - Siege Artillery (175 MU)

Allows the commander to fire a barrage of incendiary shells over a designated area. The projectiles will burn the area for some time, denying the area for infantry forces in the process.

The initial concept for this tree has being finished some hours ago, thus we still need to prepare the units(code for abilities and units, textures), so we don't have too many screenshots to add. Also, the names of the abilities might change later. For now is all we have to show, if you have any comment or tip please let us know by writting a comment here.

See you next week!

Are the Defenders of Budapest released? I still get the regular Elite troop tree, though the mod is up to date.

Best regards

Hi there, first of all amazing job with this mod, thanks again. As I recall it there use to be a brilliant Stalingrad map for 3 vs. 3 or 4 vs. 4 ? I like the present Stalingrad map plus the Stalingrad railroad station map but I miss the old one. Will it be possible in any way to get it back? I also miss the Royal Marines where have they gone? The modders held a vote once and my impression was that people voted them in. We want the Royal Marines back at least as optional.

Best regards

Remember how you guys had the British Royal Marines for the British Faction a few years ago?
How about the Waffen SS for the Panzer Elite faction (Suggest AT guns, HMG teams and heavy mortar teams) that can be chosen for the customize army? And the AI players can chose this from the customize army also. I would suggest historic uniforms.

It's a great idea, but people would be offended by the faction name though.

vonPruts Sep 10 2015 replied:

I think that some mods used the Waffen SS soldiers. Even some squad units named Waffen SS. Nobody is getting mad at them. Blitzkrieg mod has a Waffen SS squad. Battle Of the Bulge mod has Waffen SS Panzergrenadiers.

I think the problem is the empty real damage system... you need give the real weapon damage system...

The last time I played, I saw how a T34/85 destroyed my tiger and I saw how my 88 mm gun shot 5 times and all of them bounced on T34 lateral and front armor... that is so sad.. =(

the regular vanilla damage system sucks....this game is fabulous but need add the real damage system like optional for some experienced players...

You could have asked on the forums if that's normal. I'd say it's extremely unlikely to happen. Maybe the devs changed the wrong value.

I saw a fusion mod of EF, Blitz and Far Eastern. That might work for you.
Myself and other will never play with a 'realistic damage system'

I suppose that Michael Wittmann's last tought was also about unrealistic damage when his tiger was destroyed by firefly.

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 (25 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…
