Eastern Front is a large scale expansion created by Archaic Entertainment for Relic’s award winning RTS Company of Heroes. As well as being a popular addition for fans of the base game, Archaic’s attention to detail and eventual vindication in Relic’s offical sequel has made Eastern Front one of the most successful community game mods of all time, regularly winning audience awards on ModDB.
Alex’s original score was written in an orchestral style influenced by traditional Russian folk music and patriotic songs of the Soviet era, as well as the film works of James Horner and Basil Poledouris. It features a real Balalaika ensemble alongside full orchestra with choir. It was released in April 2012 and was met with a heartwarming response from the game’s community.
