Latest Playtest Build of OpenRA Released

There is a new playtest version of OpenRA available right now. The biggest change in this Playtest release compared to the July release is the overhauled in-game interface, as well as other additions and improvements.

  • The RA mod has received a brand new sidebar.
  • A new end-game score screen appears once a game is complete.
  • The in-game menu now shows an objectives panel in all mods (previously only available in the TD mod).
  • New keyboard shortcuts have been added, and the default keys have changed to match Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3.

The full Changelog lists many of the other improvements, bug fixes, and balance changes that are included in this playtest. A few notable improvements include:

  • The lobby now prevents players from choosing colours that are too similar to each other or the terrain.
  • Veteran units gain improved reload time and accuracy, and elite units will now heal over time.
  • Planes will maintain their distance from each other in a similar fashion to helicopters.
  • Several of the Tiberian Dawn campaign missions have been updated with mission objectives.
  • A number of small balance changes to the Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn mods.

More details about this release can be found here.

New Renegade Map - Welcome to Detroit

Its always good to see new content created for older games. And it looks like people are still making new maps for C&C Renegade. Here is a new map called "Welcome to Detroit", made by PwnCall, and it comes to you via the guys at MPF-Games. It also contains the map Carnage Club Extreme as a club area where you can play around. Plus there are lots of extras and civilian cars, including a Dodge Viper! Watch the video preview below.

 

 

This new map is currently in rotation on the UltraAOW.com NewMaps 4.1 server

Renegade X Beta 3 Almost Ready

Beta version 3 of Renegade X is due for release soon. There is no exact date but it's oh so close. The Renegade X team have been working hard the past few months to fix problems, add new content to the game and improve stability to prevent the crashing problems that Beta 2 suffers from. As a small teaser, a new screen shot was released.

Official Command & Conquer Forums Offline

The official forums for Command & Conquer have been a bit of a grave yard in the past few months, understandably since there is nothing happening with the Command & Conquer franchise right now from EA's direction. However reports have come through that the Official Command & Conquer Forums are currently offline. There is no statement from EA as to why, not that one can be expected anyway. But rumours suggest they have been closed temporarily to fix a security leak someone tried to exploit recently.
