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 two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.
Best COH Mod I have played. You can tell the folks really worked hard on this one, you can hardly tell it wasn't meant to be that way from the start. The Russians are made very realistically and they play great. The only thing AT ALL that I would have to say negatively is the game seems to crash a bit more if it goes on for too long, and occasionally an AI ally will seemingly do nothing at all. But honestly those are so few are far between the rest of the Mod outshines it. I can't wait to see what they do next.
This isn't a Mod, it's a free expansion pack. :)
Too much time waiting for Ostheer faction, probably disappointing. Really bad combat "realism", specially tank combat. Great models. ostheer flag is crap. Too much 1940-1942 german units comparing with soviet units (1942-1944 most of them).Would be better to be able to play early and late period battles in order to enjoy the early models (panzer III model is great, but at the beginning of 1943 it was used as armored recon for heavier tanks and infantry support). It would be great to have a 1941-1943 and a 1943-1945 periods to play. I was eager to play a good mod about the eastern front, but having played Blitzkrieg mod, Eastern front is very disappointing. Even European Theatre mod which stopped development some time ago and was incomplete had a better essence, with fun, realism, and modifications for every faction. Eastern front could have been far better. I know modders have their own life and sometimes are VERY busy to work on the mod, but I just complain about the way you create your mod, crappy vanilla COH, with new factions and units and incorrect german flags. I REALLY THANK easter front team their work, but probably I will buy COH 2 and wait for another mod than play yours, beacuse it is very very disappointing.
