"We have waited centuries for this moment. The rivers will flow with the blood of those who oppose us." - Kane


Renegade X: Black Dawn - January Teaser - Mod DB

The conflict between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod originated in the late twentieth century, when a meteor carrying a mysterious substance struck the Tiber river in Italy. It was named Tiberium, which composed of valuable elements. Although Tiberium has proven to be an important source of income when refined, it is fatally toxic, and its contagious spread threatens all life on earth.

GDI was formed in 1985 by the United Nations as an international security force set to combat global terrorism. Conceived as a united peacekeeping military force, GDI depends on the technological sophistication of its weaponry, and the superior training and loyalties of its officers.

At the same time, the Brotherhood of Nod, led by the charismatic Kane, grew to prominence. Working largely in third world countries, wherever there was discontent and unrest, there was Kane. With the promise of a New World Order and bankrolled by the illicit Tiberium research and trade that Kane made famous, Nod began to gain power. A few scattered, disaffected units grew into an army with powerful atomic weaponry, ruthless tactics, and a Tiberian fortune.

Where GDI stands for international stability and the containment of Tiberium's expansive spread, Nod seeks to overthrow the established order and build a world centred on Tiberium research.

Renegade X


Renegade X is a tactical First and Third Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements, set in the Command & Conquer universe. It is a high quality award-winning free indie game being created on the Unreal Development Kit. Originally, Renegade X was an Unreal Tournament 3 mod, and the beta won six awards, including "#2 Best Vehicle Set" for the Making Something Unreal Contest, "#3 Best Upcoming Mod" for the Mod of the Year Contest in 2008, and "#2 Best Multiplayer" in 2009's MOTY.

In 2010, Totem Arts made the decision to make Renegade X a standalone game, available to everyone. Since then, the team has released a singleplayer mini-campaign called Operation Black Dawn. Black Dawn was released in January 2012, and it is a demonstration of what's to come. We are currently developing the awaited multiplayer version, which has yet to be released.

Feature List


  • Two Unique Factions that differ in weapons, vehicles, and gameplay style
  • 40+ Weapons and Vehicles
  • A Functional Ingame Economy allowing players to manage their own credits, purchase weapons and vehicles, maintain and increase income, and hurdle enemy credit flow.
  • Command & Conquer Mode is the central Renegade X gamemode, which will feature a skirmish pitted between GDI and Nod. Each team will have their own respective bases composed of key structures, and the main objective is to destroy the enemy base while protecting your own
  • A singleplayer mini-campaign, complete with 1-2 hours of gameplay and cinematics. Black Dawn was released in January 2012 and is available for download
  • Capturable Tech Structures allowing teams to buff up their offensive capabilities and economic reserves in multiplayer
  • Superweapons at the disposal of players such as Nuclear Weapons, spaced-based Ion Cannons, and airstrikes.
  • Skirmish Mode, allowing you to play offline with bots that are compatible with C&C-mode
  • And oodles more!

Black Dawn is singleplayer only, the future release will be fully multiplayer (up to 64 players). No co-op for Black Dawn, but it's a short campaign anyway.

Confused a bit, the description says single and multiplayer, yet on the official homepage found here: Renegade-x.com it says "Renegade X: Black Dawn (UDK) - a free indie short singleplayer campaign, available now. Multiplayer not included. Be sure to keep up with Renegade X for more news on the upcoming full release."

My question is, does this release on Desura or the homepage support multiplayer mode or is multiplayer mode not yet supported until further patches are released? Or does one have to pay for multiplayer?

Sorry it is 3 am here and i am dead tired.

FYI - the mod / games looks brilliant.

Renegade X started off as a multiplayer-only UT3 mod, where it had several released versions.
Then, Renegade X became a standalone game (UDK-based) and we are using this opportunity to make Renegade X into a full singleplayer and multiplayer game.
The singleplayer, which is a 1-2 hour campaign, has been released and it is called Black Dawn. It does not include a multiplayer form. Treat it as a "demo" of the upcoming full version.
The multiplayer version release date is still TBD. It'll go way above and beyond any previous version of this mod or the original game.

Sorry folks, we posted our update early on Sunday and it still seems to not have been approved by the IndieDB team. I guess the update will get buried - please "follow" Renegade X to get notified when the update goes up.

Ati HD 5700.

Well I think it would be either the operating system. Can you play Unreal Tournament 3 ? If you can than it should be no problem with UDK

Lowest Rated (15 agree) 3/10

I played through half of the campaign and suffered through two system lockups which required shutting down my computer via the power button. The graphics were pretty decent... Comparable to games from 2008-2009, but the overall (lack of) brightness makes it difficult to discern any details in their work. It seems pointless to me to put so much effort into environments and then make them so dark that you can't see what you're doing without jacking up the gamma in your video card control panel. AI…
