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.

The Is-3 was in the game, and it was the most sexiest tank with its curves and sloped armor, however for some reason it was taken out.

Yes, it was removed due to mostly technical (and some historical) reasons.

I'm new to the mod but I've been playing vCOH for a while. When I start EF how come the ingame resolution is a bit iffy? I mean, compared to when I run vCOH there's nothing wrong with the graphics. But when I run EF it's like it turned down the resolution. But I checked my settings and EF is running on the settings I set up for vCOH. Which is on High and 1366x768 wide. I mean, the menu is fine, it's clear but it's in ingame where it shows up like it became 1280 or something.

Try changing your game's resolution to another different (you can try keeping it and ) then change it back.

For the Ostheer, how is the Leichtes Infantriegesch├╝tz 18 Infantry Support Gun nowadays? When I used to play, I loved it, though I would always be carelesss by just moving it up to close to the frontlines.
Another thing, what is an Infantry Support Gun? I know that in COH, the Leig 18 and the M1927 are.

An infantry support gun is a light artillery piece made to work in infantry maneuvers and offer support to infantry forces(due to not being heavy to be rellocated wherever it is needed) and increase the firepower of infantry units(these weapons were equipped with short low velocity barrels, just like PE Pz.IV).

They were intended to be used against infantry and not against vehicles.

Indeed, they could be used for direct and indirect fire. Quite versatile little pieces of war and almost a must in mountain warfare.

I've downloaded the full client along with the latest patch, my game is completely up to date, however for some reason on the loading screen the game crashes with an error report asking if I'd like to send the error off.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Does your friendslist show that you use the 'Company of Heroes (New Steam Version)' when you start up EF? OR do you use a retail version of CoH1?

I used the Steam version and it does show that we're all playing the new Steam version. We've tried both new and older patches and I believe we had the issue in the past as well (Few months back) which stopped us playing back then as well.

I've tried a full re-install and changed a few steam/firewall settings, but to no avail.

Have you tried to uninstall and delete the EF files & folders that remain there before reinstalling the mod?

You are using the latest version of the mod,(2.300) right?

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…
