Software update: OpenRA 20200503

A new stable release of OpenRA has become available. OpenRA is an open source and cross platform clone of Dune 2000 and the Command and Conquer titles Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. The basic parts, which are sufficient to play the game, can be downloaded from the internet. You do need the original CD for all parts such as music and videos. OpenRA has some improvements over the original games. For example, they can be played in a higher resolution and multiplayer games can be played against players on other platforms. The release notes for this release can be found below.

Release 20200503

We are pleased to finally announce Release 20200503, which brings the public release up to date with development changes from September 2019 through to March 2020. Two months of public playtesting have allowed us to polish these changes into the release today.

The new release adds some long-awaited UI improvements, core engine upgrades, and a few balance changes for the multiplayer community. Once again, FiveAces has put together a patch spotlight video that explains many of these changes.

If you don’t like videos, the main changes have been outlined in previous news posts [one, two, three four], and, as always, in the full changelog. A new Mod SDK release is also available, and the Resource Center now accepts maps designed for the new release.
