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.

Next update for the Eastern Front mod... more focused on the Team though.

Posted by on

Hello Eastern Front fans,

In this update we will talk about some milestones made by the Team. We decided to make a small update to explain why we have signed our last update as Archaic Entertainment, and to talk about the Greenlight process where we just passed some days ago.

1 - We have been greenlit on Steam!



In fact, we have been greenlit last week, probably a lot of you are curious about what will happen, so feel free to ask :).

What does that mean?

It means we will start to use Steam to update the mod, which means a more secure source for updates.

Does that mean you will only use Steam from now on?

No, we will continue to upload each version into ModDB and Modsaholic(along other mirrors). This is in case an offline player wants to use it.

When is it going to happen?

While we were greenlit, we still have a lot of paperwork to do for the Greenlight Team and as we weren't used on such things, we will need some time to get all done.


Thanks to Relic and Sega for the assistance, without their help we wouldn't be greenlit. Also, thanks to all the Eastern Front fans that voted for us and supported us all the time until we were chosen. We are one step closer guys :).

We have also prepared a new layout for the main menu for the next version. You can say thanks to Walki for it :).


2 - Assembling a Company!

One of the things we needed to publish on Steam was to be part of a real company, and so we did! We are now Archaic Entertainment, we didn't choose "Eastern Front Team" because we might do different projects and the name might not fit very well into them. But our buddies can still call us EF Team, no problem with that ;).

So far, it is just a name change at the moment, there is not going to happen something special or different in the site. Regardless of this, just like the current version of Eastern Front is free to download, the Steam version will be free as well.

3 - Mod of the Year 2013 (aka MOTY 2013)

We are still on competition, every vote counts! Help us to reach the first place this year! Remember you can vote for any number of mods you like and you are not limited to one; you can vote for us here.

4 - Russian translator needed!


We still need a Russian translator for Eastern Front, if someone wants to help, please send us a message or write a comment here.

Thanks for downloading and continue to enjoy,

Archaic Entertainment Team
