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).

Tiberian Dawn

Tiberian Dawn 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. It separates itself from the rest of the C&C series in terms of lore, certain game mechanics and file formats, but also shares a lot of technology with it's spiritual successors. Avoid the sandworms and build your base on stable foundations. The spice must flow!

Being in a feature freeze, we focused on fixing bugs and inconsistencies reported by community members to ensure the release is as bug-free as possible.

More notable things that got fixed include:

  • An exploit where spies in RA could infiltrate team mate’s structures.
  • Issues with crushing infantry and walls.
  • Issues with units entering transports.
  • Visual errors connected to shroud and fog of war.

For details check out the full changelog.

Grab the installer for this playtest from our download page and give it a try!

Really amazing work you guys have done. This is truly an awesome project and I look forward to seeing what you do next. :)

That being said, there is one thing which, I feel, is a major problem; For the love of God, PLEASE increase the Chrono Tank's teleport-radius!! I don't mind it having a limited range, but it's currently so small that it's completely useless! In my opinion the teleport-radius needs to be AT LEAST 3 times what it currently is so that it can actually do what it was designed to do.

I gotta know, I've been playing D2k for awhile, and haven't seen even the slightest wormsign. Are there sand worms? I have even tried luring them out with repeated tank explosions but nothing. Also it looks like theres the infantry option for thumpers but they're medics instead.

Can you add a save game option for the skirmish (vs AI) game in a future release? I don't always have time for a full lenght play.

Yes, Github.com but it is harder than it might sound to implement this.

Not again, Github.com This is annoying. Instead of asking Symantec to whitelist our binaries every time I think we should go and tell everyone to not use Norton products anymore. This is getting ridiculous.

Norton and Mcafee are BOTH legal viruses, I'm surprised about that legal part though.

I suggest either Avira, AVG, Avast or malwarebytes for anyone coming off those commercial giants of AV.
