OpenRA is an Open Source port of Westwood’s Red Alert game engine, updated to use the hardware acceleration of modern video cards, high screen resolution and a modernized GUI. The result is a highly moddable RTS game engine which comes with support for Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert and Dune 2000.


OpenRA is not an exact clone. It reinvents the game adding features found in modern RTS titles.

  • Modular MiniYAML game logic parser instead of simple INI rules
  • Right-click orders to avoid miss-clicks
  • Fog of War hides enemy units
  • Spectator mode and replays for e-Sport events
  • Support for mods and mini-games
  • Tabbed build palette which allows queuing
  • Lua scripting instead of hard-coded mission triggers
  • Integration of a content delivery platform for custom maps.
