Dark experiments have permanently altered time. Or have they? Now, Soviet tanks crush city after city while Allied cruisers shell bases. Spies lurk, land mines wait, and strange new technologies aid both sides in their struggle for ultimate control. Einstein was a brilliant mind, but he did not comprehend the consequences of his actions until it was too late... Command & Conquer: Red alert gives you the opportunity to be more devious, cunning and ruthless than ever before. Easy to play and highly addictive, Red alert puts the fate of the world in your hands!

5 comments by Milanium on Oct 7th, 2012

OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy game engine supporting early Westwood games like Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert with emphasize on competitive network gameplay. Not only the interface is modernized. It also adds features from it's successors such as capturable oil derricks that generate income, bounties and a production queue system that prevents excessive spamming. All unit stats have been carefully updated to allow more interesting and fair matches.

The game is also highly moddable with an active community contributing content for your map or mod. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn is supported as a mod. Dune 2000 and Star Wars are work-in-progress. Visit the forums or hop in at #openra IRC chat to join the discussion. Fork us at Github.com


Have a look at the latest unstable playtest and provide feedback on the new units. Already included is the soviet flak truck and the demo truck might have a return, too. A remake of the best missions from the original campaign with co-op support is also showing some progress.

This is the first version on C&C Red alert is very @#%* now. But there are new versions now, and they are C&C Red alert 2, and C&C Red alert 3. Red alert three is complete but is not on sale yet. So if any of you dudes know where to download RA2 or RA3 please e-mail me at Bowen_liu93_Backup1@hotmail.com

Thank you!

But I can't see why those screenshots are posted of it! Those are beta shots! The released game IMO looks a bit better than those, and is definately still a game with one of the very best storylines in videogame history. Its the prequel to Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, and so a lot can be expected from it, and even more is delivered. :)

I'd have to agree with Aneurexorcyst -- RA1 was one of the best all-time RTS game ever created. Hell, it's because of this game that I ever even got into RTS's. Afterall, Tiberian Dawn may have got Westwood some more recognition, but it was RA1 that really made the C&C name stand out!

Love RA1! You can tell that the best of the best was put in for this game, despite its graphics compared to now. Then they were very good, plus the cmapaign had a great storyline no matter what, with that great question of "what if..."
