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.

The game to get it is up to the winner and the first one who send a PM with the right answer is who gets served first.

If you installed TGW 1918 from Steam you won't be able to run any other mod. So you need to uninstall it and install it using the latest version from moddb.

Thnx it probably works, but i uninstall the TGW 1918 and the installation is still there and i don't know how to completely remove it.
I tried to find it somewhere else in steam documents but nothing if you know how to fix it thnx if not thnx anyway. :)

It seems things got rough then :). You should uninstall it from the Library and not from the TGW uninstaller in the directory, if it is provided.

If you want to keep the Steam version of TGW, you can make a shortcut of Steam.exe and add parameter "-applaunch 228200 -dev -mod Eastern_Front" (quotation marks shall be included) and EF will run again.

What happened to the IS-3 tanks? And is the Kugelblizt still there? I can't seem to find both these in the skirmish or online multiplayer match. Are they removed, will they come back???

Still, where is the IS-3 tank? I really wish it was still there, why it was removed?

All the reward units were removed because we are working on replacements(reward trees instead of reward units for Soviets), not to mention that model wasn't ours.

That also was a needed action due to the mod being prepared to appear on Steam.

Though the mod makes CoH1 way better than CoH2, it still has it´s flaws.
Red Army seems more powerful than the Ostherr. When playing vs AI, i finish a skirmish faster with the russians than with the krauts. Can it be that a single russian soldier has the same firepower as german soldier?
And the range of the russian AT gun seems to be way more longer as the german.

That seem strange, a lot of people said the Soviet is so weak that they are pathetic, I on the other hand find it varies, sometimes I jump skyward when my T-34 reach at my friends doorstep, sometimes I curse my commissar and my last ditch defense falters as Panzer IIIs and IVs with swarms of infantry come crashing in for the final blow.

And since it is mentioned "improved AI", not for the friendly ones. Playing 3 vs 3 with 2 friendly AI is playing "Me vs 3".
While the enemy makes well coordinated attacks, the friendly just drive and walk around aimless.

We do not base balance on skirmish games. Balance-wise, the faction are still receiving some tweaks, but we are nearing the finalised stage. AI-code is the responsibility of Robotnik. IIRC, he improved the AI for the next patch.

i hope your AI Coder removes the ability for the AI to see through the fog of war. Found out WHY the AT Guns are so OP (even on germans), the AI has a much higher line of sight, if they even have a fog of war.

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 (23 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…
