Welcome Back, Commander

OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy project that recreates the classic Command & Conquer titles.

We include recreations of C&C (Tiberian Dawn), C&C: Red Alert, and Dune 2000. These are not intended to be perfect copies, but instead combine the classic gameplay of the originals with modern improvements such as unit veterancy and the fog of war.

OpenRA's primary focus is cross-platform multiplayer between Windows, OS X, and Linux; however, we include a number of single-player missions, and also support skirmish games against AI bots.

Playtest 20140405

Posted by Paul Chote at 2014-04-05 15:00 +1300


Our first playtest of 2014 is long overdue, and marks a significant step forward from our holiday release.

A brief sampling of our full changelog is included below.

General gameplay improvements include:

User-interface improvements include:

Specific mod improvements include:

Changes that impact mod and custom-map authors include:

A significant issue was discovered with our Lua integration late in this playtest cycle. This shouldn’t significantly affect scripted missions, but caused the shellmaps (the animations that run in the main menu) to become unstable after some time. Rather than delay the playtest further, we have disabled the shellmaps until the issue has been fixed. The shellmaps will be restored before the next full release.


We have also been nominated for the Linux Game Awards Project of the Month for May 2014.

A brief taste of our new playtest changes can be seen below:

Mod Chooser

The new mod chooser is styled after our website, and better highlights the official and custom mods.

D2K Improvements

Concrete plates have been added to D2K, and the turrets now integrate properly with walls.

Map Beacons

Beacons and radar pings will now notify you, your allies, and spectators of any important events.

Phase Transport

The Allied Phase Transport can transport three infantry, while remaining cloaked from enemy view.
