Welcome Back, Commander

OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy project that recreates the classic Command & Conquer titles.

We include recreations of C&C (Tiberian Dawn), C&C: Red Alert, and Dune 2000. These are not intended to be perfect copies, but instead combine the classic gameplay of the originals with modern improvements such as unit veterancy and the fog of war.

OpenRA's primary focus is cross-platform multiplayer between Windows, OS X, and Linux; however, we include a number of single-player missions, and also support skirmish games against AI bots.

Playtest 20150524

Posted by Matthias Mailänder at 2015-05-24 10:40:00 +0000


It has been a month of busy development. Time to get back to testing!

The major changes this time around include:

Unfortunately, an oversight in the way that we package our windows installer meant that the performance of our Windows release-20150429 builds was much worse than it should have been. We have fixed this for playtest-20150524, so Windows players should find the game runs about 30% faster!
Also general performance improvements have been integrated that affect all platforms. Kudos to RoosterDragon for his continued effort to optimize our source code.

The refined system integration adds a lot of convenient features:

Our new in-game map editor took over a year of development time, and it was worth it!

Click Extras - Map Editor from the main menu in any mod. To all our enthusiastic mappers out there: Your feedback is invaluable at this stage. We will remove the legacy OpenRA.Editor.exe in the nearby future.

Great news for tinkerers. You can now use voxels in your own mods and maps. See our updated trait documentation. The Lua API for mission scripting has also been enhanced while we proceed to implement remakes of the original campaigns.

More details and links to pull request can be found on our changelog page.

You can find the installers for a variety of supported operating systems in our download section.

Please report problems on our bug tracker. We plan to do a new stable release based upon these changes soon.
