"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!

What's up?

We are happy to announce that Beta 5 will be the final Renegade X beta. This is the last phase of beta testing. The next version of Renegade X will be the Full Version! It's been a few months since our last beta version, and we've been tinkering around, polishing up, and planning for the future. Totem Arts has been developing this game for about nine years now, and it is almost ready for that One-Point-Oh. We will be announcing its final release date soon.

That being said, Totem Arts will still be supporting the full game upon release. The SDK allows our community to build their own server mods, total conversion mods and custom maps. The autopatching system allows us to make easy and continual upgrades to the game. We have also appointed a group of Community Developers who will receive the support and direction of Totem Arts. We plan on making one more big community announcement in the very near future, and hosting a cash-prize Renegade X clan tournament upon the release of the full version.

Although we have a pretty stable playerbase, we are looking for ways to increase our exposure. If you have any ideas, go ahead and post them on this thread. You can do your part by sharing our updates with your friends, uploading videos, e-mailing gaming websites, and messaging popular YouTube gamers. We're doing our part, but keep in mind that this is a free project, and we can use any help we can get from our community!

We and our community have been actively discussing ways we can improve the RenX experience. Join the discussion, we're listening and involved: viewforum.php?f=13

Our SDK has thousands of downloads, and we are already seeing some cool custom maps and mutators being developed. Check those out here: Renegade-x.com

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

I'd like to submit a bug report (but can't find where to do it, so I'll just dump it here like the lazy bum I am):

In the 3rd level (SAM sites) when you restart from the 2nd checkpoint (having just blown up the 1st SAM). I get full health (not a bug?) and NO HUD. I've reproduced this bug 3 times without fail. Switching weapons, perspective or turning on sights (which only changes screen color, and doesn't actually display sights) does not help. Restarting objective (level) does fix it, but there's an unskipable cutscene, so that's not convenient at all.
I'm running a 64-bit Win7 'Professional' on a laptop.

More bugs!

in level 4 (baby sitter) when you reload a checkpoint, if you had taken one of the missile launchers, it will be missing. Also you can trap yourself behind the barrels if you jump onto them from above (i.e. are being an idiot.) Just thought you should know.

More importantly, I managed to get the 'No HUD' bug again. This time it doesn't occur every time, but when it does there aren't any units on the level: friend, foe or The Tank (I suspect it's a *different* 'No HUD' bug) and you can finish by simply running to the objective on foot (No MLRSes are necessary, nor do they appear.)
You can also finish sometimes without doing anything (this only happened once, so my best guess is: deliver MLRSes to the objective, have one killed (by the remaining enemy forces), then re-spawn and wait.) Will investigate further.

a1s Aug 15 2012 replied:

Confirmed. I just did the same thing again, and the mission was completed without me interfering (MLRSes were not deployed in this one either- you just have to wait a bit). It's unclear if being of foot plays any role in this, as I never managed to keep my tank in one piece (despite being proficient with my touchpad, I still suck at being a commando.)

More bugs tommorow!

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…
