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.


DOWNLOADING EASTERN FRONT

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.

20 comments by blackbishop on Jul 4th, 2015


Hello comrades!

This weekend we will disclose the second reward command tree and it will be for Soviets, and it is about some former units that now will come as support, I was considering to just name the announcement "The Return of the Forgotten", but Rommel came with a good name for the tree. Hope you like it!


LHS - ARMOURED SUPPORT

1 CP: Mechanized Assault Tactics

Unlocks body armor for Ingenery squads and gives them the Advanced Repair ability. When one squad is upgraded, it gains more HP, armour, and four PPSH-41 submachine guns for close combat. They can no longer be ordered to build advanced structures but are still able to build defensive structures.

3 CP: Tank Riders (500 MP)

Deploys a BT-7 tank which comes with a squad of Sturmovies on it. The BT-7 will have the "Tank Rider" ability/perk just like the T-34 tanks or the SU-85/SU-100 self-propelled guns, but unlike them heavy concentrated machine gun fire on the rear of the BT-7 can damage this unit due to its armour. This tank can (tentatively) be upgraded by the player into a BT-7a. The squad provided will be the same than a Sturmovie-upgraded Ingenery squad.

This is just a placeholder picture

This is just a placeholder picture


3 CP: KV-85 Command Tank (700 MP)

Equipped with the same gun as the T-34/85, this tank's role is to support other tanks and give them better stats when they are close (works similar to Command Squad vet Off/Def bonuses). Due to how rare these tanks were, it is limited to one at the same time. If possible, this unit would have a DShK upgrade for the cupola.

RHS - ARTILLERY SUPPORT


1 CP: Artillery flare (50 MU)

Debuffs enemy units in the area of effect. It is the one that used to be in Urban Combat Strategy command tree, but was replaced by the smoke barrage.

3 CP: SU-122 (600 MP)

The old SU-122 will return in this tree, but with the new model. So the commander will be able to be upgraded as well as cage armour (just like the SU-85 or the SU-100). However there’s only a limited amount that can be allocated to the battlefield at the same time.

3 CP: IL-2 Rocket Run (200 MU)

Allows the commander to request for an IL-2 Sturmovik to fire it's load at a given target. Unlike the US bombing run, the IL-2 will shoot 8 rockets in the target direction.


We haven't started to work with the BT-7 and the new KV-85 tanks, thus, their lack of screenshots. If you have any comment or tip please let us know.

See you next week!

1. Is it possible to get a "Skinpack" with all Ostheer/German Infantry Skins used in EF Mod for the Vanilla Game? The vanilla Infantry Skins look a bit... unrealistic.

2. Do you make for Vanilla Factios new historical correct Skins? That would be great!

Greetings from Germany and Great Mod!

I don't think so. I don't know if we can use it with Ostheer though. But we will see.

So... steam release looks epic, I do have a few questions though:
1. What campaign(s) are you guys making? Russian or Ostheer(or both XD)
2. What are foreign support trees?
3. So you are including doctrine reward units AND reward doctrines for all nations right?
4. As of right now, ostheer feels a bit underpowered and Russia feels quite powerful(like they are the only faction with a non doctrinal HT and the ostheer only have on doctrine with it and has to micro manage a bit with the assault and support pool. Are you reworking ostheer right now?
5. Is there going to be the reward faction(like the royal marines commandos or something like that in one of the previous version)

1) The plans for the campaigns hasn't changed at all since the last time we announced them. Media.moddb.com

2) You will see tomorrow :).

3) Reward command trees for all factions, yes. Doctrinal reward units not at all. However, the reward units the Soviets used to have are going to be featured in reward command trees and not as reward units(except for IS-3 that so far is not planned to be made).

4) We have comments about how Soviets are underpowered and how Ostheer is OP as well, so, the only thing I can say is that we are discussing about it and we will do something about it soon. We aren't just ignoring these claims.

5) I doubt it. It is better to just create a new faction instead of making something so complex like that, specially for Brits.

Also, are you replacing some of the models that slow down loading with models of your own?

If possible yes. Example of that are the Commonwealth emplacements. Guns are fine, but the buildings are not.

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…
