About

OpenRA is a highly moddable RTS game engine for classic Westwood 2D games. In fact Red Alert, Command & Conquer and Dune 2000 are implemented purely as mods on it. Tools are provided that allow you to add new units, maps and tilesets even create your own mod. Have a look at the wiki.

Built-In Mods

Red Alert

sovietsThe RA mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It is not just a clone of the original but has improved and rebalanced gameplay. The UI is modernised for higher resolutions and better usabiltiy. It has fully working multiplayer support for both internet and local play (via direct connect). A single player campaign is currently being worked on.

Command & Conquer

GDI The CNC mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn game. As with Red Alert modern networking and rendering technology is used. Also new features are implemented such as snow terrain, neutral tech buildings and many glitches from the original have been fixed.

Dune 2000

ArrakisThe D2k mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Dune 2000. A remake of the remake so to speak. The mod tries to optimize balancing and gameplay. Currently in early stages of development, but already playable. The spice must flow!

We are pleased to announce the availability of our July release, which includes 619 commits by 27 contributors.The feature list remains the same as for our July playtests, but this release benefits from additional testing and bugfixes. The main new features are:

  • The RA and TD game music can now be downloaded and installed from the in-game music player.
  • Capturing enemy structures in RA and TD will now let you build units from their faction.
  • The maximum tech level can be configured in the lobby options.

Other notable improvements include:

  • Fixed a number of crashes that were introduced in the last release.
  • Fixed issues that occurred when installing from CD.
  • Improved performance and memory usage.
  • Improved scroll-panel behaviour.
  • Added an option to lock the mouse cursor inside the game window.
  • Multiple players can now repair a building at an accelerated rate.
  • Added engine support for diamond-shaped (“isometric”) terrain (an important milestone for our TS mod).

As usual, the full list of changes compared with the June release is available on our wiki.

Capturing enemy structures in TD and RA will now allow you to produce their units.

OpenRA can now download the game music for RA and TD.

Tech levels can be configured in the lobby options for all mods.

Development is progressing well on our Tiberian Sun mod, but it is still several months away from a release.

There are some features which I think would be interesting to have in OpenRA, like all the gamemodes from "C&C: Sole Survivor Online" and a World Domination mode like in Firestorm and Kane's Wrath. What do you think about it?

Hello, i downloaded the version 20130514 of OpenRA and right after installing it, i run the game, but nothing happens. I noticed that the openra.game.exe process is shown on task manager, but only for a second. A clean reinstall didn't solve the issue: what is going on? My OS is Windows 7 32bits.
