Post news RSS Release 20230225

The latest installment of the open-source project recreating classic Westwood Studios RTS games, including initial support for the Remastered Collection assets.

Posted by on

Today we have a special occasion on our hands. We have been waiting for this moment for almost two years: A new stable OpenRA Release 20230225 is out now!

Many features have built up over the two years. This release is packed to the brim with goodies small and large. Several major systems have been added and overhauled, a great deal of rougher edges smoothed out. For details see the previous playtest news posts [one, two, three, four] and, as always, for a full overview - the full changelog.

But wait, there’s more! This release brings major behind-the-scenes changes towards supporting the C&C Remastered Collection assets. This support is still incomplete, but works well enough that we are today also releasing a development preview of “Tiberian Dawn HD”. It is a separate release that can be downloaded here. This preview is multiplayer-compatible with the main 20230225 release, but performance, memory usage, and loading times have not been optimized, and do not reflect the expected final requirements. The C&C Remastered Collection must be installed through Steam or Origin, and the project README provides installation instructions for macOS and Linux.

Lua API in Visual Studio Code

In case you were wondering whether we ran out of treats, worry not! Modders will also be feasting sweet this time. There were major updates to our documentation, and our tooling was joined by the OpenRA (Mini)YAML Language Extension and the OpenRA Lua API extension.

It has been a long road to this release, so we hope you’ll enjoy this newest installment of OpenRA! Good luck on the battlefield commanders, and have fun.
