Playtest 20131019 // C&C Tournament

We have just released a new playtest which enhances our September release with the foundations for the next great release. The playtest-20131019-5 build is available from the download page.

These playtest builds provide a snapshot of our current development for feedback by our testers. You can help shape the future of OpenRA by testing these builds and reporting bugs or simply letting us know what you think.

The main changes in this development build are:

  • Added support for password protected servers.
  • Added a global chat channel to the server lobby. This will be extended game-wide in a future playtest.
  • Added support for multiple languages. Translations for DE and FR are in progress for a future playtest.
  • Testing reworked balance for RA, including the base-radius limit from C&C.
  • Fixed several bugs that were discovered in release-20130915.

See the changelog for more details on the playtest changes.
