An ambitious total-conversion modification for Relic's award-winning Company of Heroes® franchise, Modern Combat
transports players into the midst of a high-tech war between the current-day Chinese and United States armed forces.
Incorporating all-new factions, units, doctrines, gamemodes, artwork, music and maps, we aim to craft the most
immersive and enjoyable strategic representation of 21st-century combat possible on the PC.
Our team has adhered wherever possible to the unique and innovative gameplay mechanics that made Company of
the stand-out real-time strategy that it is. Players will need to rely upon a variety of traditional tactics in
order to succeed, whilst at the same time utilising to full effect the highly-advanced weaponry and equipment
employed by the militaries of today. Modern Combat caters to newcomers and veterans alike, and incorporates both
traditional and 'Hardcore' damage systems.

Hi again everyone!

Just to avoid any confusion from the get-go: yes, it's been over five (!) months since version 1.019 went live... and no, this isn't in regards to a new patch.

There are two reasons for this announcement:



As some of you might already be aware, Modern Combat has now been Greenlit on Steam via the Company of Heroes Mod Initiative, and will soon be downloadable just like any other Steam game (a huge thankyou to SgtConti for setting everything up!).

This will hopefully sort out ~90% of all issues that people report regarding installation, particularly BAT file issues, directory misunderstandings and download interruptions. It will also make Modern Combat accessible to the entire Steam community (and hopefully give the mod's dwindling playerbase a shot in the arm).

There are several major obstacles that need to be addressed before the release can go ahead, but if all goes to plan (which it almost never does) then expect our Steam debut in approximately two weeks!

Upcoming Steam Release!

Beta version of the Modern Combat Steam page.



Several times over the past few months I've mentioned a proposed rework of Modern Combat. After many months of personal experimentation behind the scenes, I think it's time to elaborate.

The plan is to create - for all intents and purposes - a Modern Combat v2.0 for CoH1. This rework would involve a complete overhaul of factions, units and doctrines, all with the intent of:

  • Making Modern Combat truly stand out, and less of a stylistic imitation of the original CoH (with the implementation of unique game mechanics entirely new to CoH modding).
  • Breathing new life into the mod (taking the familiar and making it fresh again), as well as making a few select additions to the rosters of both factions. This would be an extremely efficient way to make full use of our existing assets whilst also giving the playerbase something novel to re-explore.
  • Merging the US Army and Marine Corps into a single US faction (no more half-arsed standalone USMC faction), and then offering players the use of both factions (US and China) regardless of the DLC they own (or don't own).
  • Taking the opportunity to incorporate long-requested additions and weed out the most unpopular elements of the mod.

I've already created a private demo build of the rework, and following small-scale internal testing have received some encouraging feedback, particularly concerning the unit overhauls and new game mechanics.

Experimental Air Superiority doctrine (as of five months ago). Read the description for details.

However It's currently a solo project, with vital team-members like Darkbladecr inundated at university and DMz and Beefy working tirelessly (not punny?) over at Eastern Front for the past few months. Very little can be done in the realm of 3D modelling and animating until/unless these team-members are able to return.

Nevertheless, should this rework end up going ahead as planned, I'm eager to involve the fans moreso than we did during the initial release of Modern Combat in March 2012. If the community seems interested enough in such a project then I'll upload the current faction design documents for everyone to scrutinise and discuss.


All the best!

~ Spoon, on behalf of the Modern Combat team.

you need at least COH opposign fronts or tale of valor to play Modern Combat mod.

the automatical victory make me think, you only have COH normandy version.

if you have opposing fronts or tale of valor you should change your game graphics settings from Ultra values to high or madium values... ultra values cause problems.

no, you only need 1.019 MC patch.
This is the complete game...

Some guys report problem with the game, for example: some guys has only "opposing fronts" and they can not play MC mod.

I read and post from "Spoon" who say that you need tales of valor to play MC. I do not why, because opposing front have all 4 armies availables and the automatically victory only happen with COH normandy.

What COH game do you have?

yes that is true.

but Opposing fronts have PE and CW who in Modern combat are PLA and US Army...

with Opposing fronts, he should play without problem but if he play with USMC who is EEUU in WWII he will have problems because without COH normandy he can not unlock EEUU (USMC)...

The better choice is have tales of valor but if you have normandy and opposing fronts you should not need buy tales of valor... I think so!

Yep. ^

You don't need ToV specifically, you just need access to all four factions.

You need access to all four vCoH factions. If you currently only own OF, then that means you'll need to obtain either the original game OR ToV. That's just how it is I'm afraid. :/

if you play skirmish and you obtain an automatic victory is because you only have installed COH normandy, you need install COH opposing fronts and make sure this game work perfectly...

After install COH opposing fronts you can install Modern combat mod in the main game folder.

To play modern combat, you need at least Oppsoing fronts or tales of valor... one of them is enough!

I think it's a great concept and everything, but really it's just Vanilla with reskins and different voices. That's what I felt when playing it, though I am a Blitzkrieg follower I prefer my tanks to kill light armored personal cars in 1 shoot and not 4 shoots, I also experienced sligtly problems playing with infantry as PLA does a pretty bad job against Amerian infantry but when I get my tanks I dominate the Battlefield. It's like the AI never really deploys tanks but only light armored cars, even…
