Return of the Dawn is a mod for Tiberian Sun. It runs on Tiberian Sun's engine, but all structures, units, neutral objects, Tiberium-related objects, landscape, cursors, even main menu are Tiberian Dawn-style. The combination of re-rendered assets and resized original graphics from Tiberian Dawn gives the mod a unique style.

Return of the Dawn doesn't have single player campaign, only skirmish and multiplayer mode.


All the structures and units of GDI, Nod, and the civilians are from Tiberian Dawn. However, some original-designed ones and some cut-content-inspired ones were added to later version of Return of the Dawn.

Tiberium-related Objects

Return of the Dawn retains the green and blue Tiberium varieties of Tiberian Sun, though they use graphics based on the Tiberian Dawn Tiberium. The mod also features Blossom Trees and Visceroids, all using the original game's graphics.

The Veinhole Monster was removed in the mod, since it didn't appear in the first game outside a cutscene, and Tiberian Dawn doesn't feature the Chemical missile and its related vein harvesting system to make the veinhole monster useful in the game.


Return of the Dawn uses original soundtracks from Tiberian Dawn, as well as remixed versions.
