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.

So what's OpenRA?

OpenRA is a cross-platform Libre/Free Open-Source Real Time Strategy game engine. It is a highly moddable recreation of the early Westwood games. In fact both Red Alert and Command & Conquer are implemented purely as mods on it.
