Open-Source reimplementation of Westwood’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert game engine, updated to use the hardware acceleration of modern video cards using OpenGL and OpenAL for sound playback. It runs natively on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The game was designed with modifiability in mind, but is not identical to the original. Campaigns and mods made for the legacy game won't work out of the box.
The Competitive Network will host a 2 vs 2 tournament to see if OpenRA is already suitable for league play. The sign-ups are open to everyone. It is scheduled for Saturday, March 16th 2013 @ 12:00PM EST (GMT -5). Let's hope this will produce more awesome replays for our gamecast video production crew.
