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 really hope you will create some kinds of infantry and viechle skin in winter just like it in COH2, and I also wish to see new units and weapons in Eastern Front, for example, M98k rifle with telescope equipped with the Ostheer sniper

I noticed the mod works fine on steam, (as long as we can say coh on steam works fine), but EF crash, quickly on my cd version. Testing with some other mods,I have not this problem. (I used the banal way to make a new shortcut with -mod param) It s a bit disapointing, EF have good reputation for AI that make it suitable for compstom players or multicoop players.
fact is this community will always, when possible play the CD version, which is more stable than the poor steam one. It also allows lan, more confortable when possible than internet connection.

I also noticed by observation, AI dont spawn units from barrack as long as unit regenerate lost soldiers near HQ. It probably comes from vcoh AI. It could appear insignifiant, but in the way I explored the game, it s crippling.

Thanks your fan work at the community benefit.

Hello nuremberg! So you are using EF 2.30 with the compability patch? (on a retail coh version). What is your rig? Do you have 8GB ram (which is important because EF requires twice as much as vCoH)

I downloaded and used the last EF -- > EF_Setup2.3.0.0_Full, and tried to play it on a tales of valors part of anthology CD version, patch up to 2.602.

I m not sure about what I have to understand with "compability patch". perhaps here is the prb. I will check EF forum.

Sorry for the delay from the entire team. A lot of us are currently busy with University (the majority of our team), as a new semester began. We also have some that have to write their thesis and even one that does his dissertation. We currently do stuff in small bits... it's not fast but we are progressing but as you may imagine it's really hard to set a release date. I hope you guys can understand this.

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…
