OpenRA ist eine freie Quelloffene Gameengine, welche die frühen Westwood Spiele wie Red Alert oder das klassische Command-and-Conquer abbildet. Dieses Community betriebene Projekt ist vor einigen Tagen in einer neuen Version erschienen. Diese Gameengine ist sowohl für den PC, als auch für Linux und Mac Betriebssysteme verwendbar. Im aktuellen Build gibt es neben neuen Maps eine neue Einstellung in der Soundengine und einige Änderungen am Gameplay und am integrierten Mod-Support. Hier findet ihr den kompletten Changelog des aktuellen Builds und die Website der Programmierer:
