Operation Market Garden (OMG) is a persistent multiplayer only modification based off the award winning real time strategy game Company of Heroes. We put a strong emphasis on balance, community, transparency, and fun. Currently in an open Beta, we are constantly improving, adding new OMG features and content. Through our website the player tailors their company, customizing it to fit their play style and needs. Through our simple and easy to use launcher they join battle with their teammates against the enemy. There's no in game resource management, no base building, and no gimmicks. It's just pure combat, building on the already superb platform of Company of Heroes, and it's pure fun. Win or lose, your surviving units stick with you throughout your battles. The war persists, your troops persist, and its all at tip of your fingers.

Three days after our originally scheduled launch date, the OMG Mod team is proud to present you with our first public release! Operation Market Garden is a Persistency modification for Company of Heroes & Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts. This release includes all 4 factions (British, Panzer Elite, American, Werhmacht) fighting battles in a persistent environment where every kill your squads get makes them better (If they survive the battle!



What you get in this BETA!


  • 99% stable version of Operation Market Garden (only one crash bug left)
  • Persistency: Every kill your troops get on the battlefield gives them more experience and makes them better for the next battle - Every win comes at the cost of squads you've grown to rely on from previous engagements!
  • All 4 Factions in and fully playable
  • Fully functional WarCP that will let you build companies, buy upgrades, etc.
  • New Features like Halftrack Loading, Paradropping Fallschrimjaegers, Weapons able to garrison emplacements, etc.
  • New Doctrinal Units (only Americans have new units at the moment) including new tanks & infantry all of which are quite balanced to fit in the gameplay and don't overlap existing units
  • 6 new & exclusive maps
  • Simple battle file downloader that you tell where you installed COH and it puts the battle files and .UCS in the right place for you
  • A single installer that brings it all under one roof

  • Comprehensive Launcher 1.0 will include Battle Creation, Chat, Battle File Downloading & Automatic Version Updates - ETA 2-3 Days
  • Comprehensive Launcher 2.0will include all of above + company creation & management + automatic map downloading (maps will be selected before game launches) + Dynamic warmap integration - ETA Mid-February
  • DOCTRINES - While some doctrine UNITS are in, the complete doctrine system has over 600 unique abilities, many with multiple levels, so will take a while for Bonte & Marcus to get them in - We estimate 4-6 weeks for full implementation but we may roll them out a tier at a time i.e. week 2: All T1s Week 3 All T2s, etc.

For those of you who have never played OMG or EIR before, you can get acquainted with the army creation process through this video


And finally, this is a community based modification - Communication is exceptionally important & the way we communicate/organize games in OMG is through voice chat software Ventrilo

Ventrilo software may be downloaded for free at

For the whole Operation Market Garden Development Team,
