Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert using the Tiberian Sun engine. The project's aim is to allow people to both play and mod TD and RA, while having all of the benefits of the TS engine.
All 4 factions (GDI, Nod, Allies, and Soviet) of the original games are included and can simultaneously battle one another on over 100 original multiplayer maps. This can be done either in classic mode (which matches the balance of TD and RA1 as closely as possible) or enhanced mode (which adds many new features and competitive balance improvements).
DTA also features dozens of challenging, unique singleplayer missions as well as co-op missions that can be easily played over the community-driven CnCNet online service.
Since this is a stand-alone mod, you don't require anything but the mod itself to be able to play: the original game is not required.
This mod is still actively being worked on, so you can expect frequent updates and if you find any bugs, please report them so that we can fix them as soon as possible.
It's December 1st, which of course means that DTA version 1.16 will be released today like we announced in our previous news posts.
The exact time of the release will be 6:00 PM CET / 5:00 PM UTC (GMT) / 9:00 AM PST and it can then be obtained by either downloading full mod from Mod DB as a zip-file (which can then be installed by manually extracting it into an empty folder) or by downloading the installer (which will automatically download and install the latest version of DTA for you). Either way the mod is completely stand-alone as always, so you don't need to have any of the original games to be able to play DTA.

It does not stop there however, as DTA takes Tiberian Dawn to the next level, including skirmish modes and online support for fans. Graphically, DTA mimics it's ancestral father perfectly, the charmingly simple…
