"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

17 comments by [NE]Fobby[GEN] on Oct 1st, 2014

Hey guys! It's been a long time since we've had an update, but there's a lot of exciting news that we'd like to share with you today.

Beta 3 is coming out on October 8th!

The long-awaited evolution of Renegade X is coming out in 8 days! After several months of working, testing, and of course, playing our previous beta on the side, we're finally ready to push a new beta build. After beta 3, we will continue working on Renegade X - we've got a lot of exciting stuff coming up for later updates.

So, for Beta 3, you can expect to see the following:

•    Brand new Renegade X launcher!
•    New map: C&C Volcano
•    New items: AT mines and EMP grenades
•    New Black Hand character model
•    Crash fixes
•    New UI features (interactive pause-menu and scoreboard)
•    End-game sequences 
•    Oodles of balance changes and fixes for weapons and vehicles
•    New first-person animations for some weapons
•    Audio changes (silo capturing is now broadcasted, weapon and vehicle sound changes)
•    Texture, LOD, and shader optimizations – game runs much smoother
•    TeamDonate command
•    Weapon and vehicle reticle changes
•    Many glitch fixes
•    And much more!

Beta 3 will be available for FREE at Renegade-x.com on October 8th 2014.

What else is up?

We at Totem Arts have been developing Renegade X for over 7 years. In that time, we released several RenX Unreal Tournament 3 alphas, a standalone singleplayer game, and two standalone multiplayer betas. We've come a long way - this game has matured, and so have we. As a free project, it’s difficult to give Renegade X all of the time and attention that it needs to hit its climax in success. Still, we plan to do everything in our power to support our community and empower those who can help us in that goal.

For the next version of Renegade X (after Beta 3), we will be developing several new maps – including remakes of some of our favourite classics – and we will begin working on a new gamemode, which will be discussed at a later time. We realize that our players have dwindled significantly since our February release: we went from having 400-1000 players on at a time to just 40-80 players. You can still catch a good game of Renegade X at almost any part of the day, but we want to have a large, thriving, self-sufficient community.

Perhaps the biggest cause of the population shrink is the crashing, which became too annoying for many people to bear. We believe we have fixed those problems. Another cause was ingame exploits, and we’ve since developed some countermeasures to the use of exploits. A third reason is that C&C mode – which is very different from what gamers are used to nowadays – perhaps did not appeal to some of the newcomers. While many FPS games are based on k/d ratios and capturing flags, Renegade X is about defending and destroying bases, which is radically different from the mainstream. Renegade X is not for everybody, but we are exploring ways to gain new audiences while retaining our roots.

We are a free game, and therefore we do not have an advertising budget. Renegade X relies completely on word-of-mouth, so please do whatever you can to spread the news. Upload a beta mirror, e-mail a gaming site or magazine, record a YouTube video, post about us on reddit and other forums, and be sure to tell your friends! The bigger our playerbase is, the more work we can put into the game.

With that said, we do aspire to become a Steam game, but we cannot do so without EA’s expressed permission. We have been trying to get to the EA licensing manager, but so far unsuccessfully. If you have any ideas on how Renegade X can become a Steam game, post them in the comments! If you know anyone from EA, point them in our direction please!

Volcano

The new and improved Volcano is complete, and it will be available in Beta 3. Check it out below!

Black Hand Sniper!

Check out the new Black Hand. Looks a lot better than a painted SBH, right?

EMP grenades

We’ve added a new purchasable item in Beta 3 that will be available to both GDI and Nod. The EMP grenade is a C4-replacement that freezes the vehicles in its radius for a few seconds. While the vehicles would still have access to their guns, they cannot move as long as the EMP effect remains.

AT mines

The new AT mine is an anti-armour C4-replacement. A player can deploy a maximum of two AT mines, which have the firepower of a remote-C4. However, these mines can be destroyed by enemy weapons.

New Tiberium Flechette Model

Capturing a Tiberium Silo gives your team the ability to purchase a Tiberium Flechette. We have created a new model - check it out!

--

And that is all for today. Be sure to download Beta 3 on October 8th, and to stay tuned for more Renegade X news!

Oh, and by the way, happy Rene-birthday X! September 30th was the day that we released our very first Renegade X alpha for Unreal Tournament 3 back in 2009. So we wish you fun times ahead and many presents to come :)

Just completed the game... ITS EPIC! I cant wait for the multiplayer release. 1 thing though: this has swearing in it (sh*t thats it) in it, original didnt. But still though, love it! cant wait for another mission! On steam though it says
In-game
Unreal Development Kit.

Ah well, still though, its epic!

Its much like the original C&C Renegade. if you have a slow gpu, you need a new one. I got ati sahhpire 6870 and it runs on max with 4X MASSA fine, with a little lag at times. I would reccomemend this to any C&C Renegade fan. I would play the westwood one first though.

Lag? You meant fps drop? My 4850 (512mb) can run smoothly same as 5850 (1GB).

Or lack or RAM or slower processor? :?

I remember there once being a video showing the beginning of The Scorpion Hunters mission remake for Renegade X, but I don't seem to find it anywhere. Anyone else remember that?

Free and graphics are impossible, or at-least that is what these companies are telling us these days. Renegade-X will change this...

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…
