It's been a while since our last update, but some very exciting developments have been happening behind the scenes over at Renegade X. Some secrets will be unveiled today in this update, and others will be left aside for another time, soon.

Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn

Over the past few months, the team has been busy with several things. In relation to Renegade X, we've been working on porting Renegade X over to the Unreal Development Kit (UDK), which would successfully make Renegade X into a free, standalone indie game. This process has required us to recode some basic elements, and create some new static meshes for the UDK versions. The UDK really is a new beginning in many ways.

On May 4th 2010, the team released a new image and mysterious riddle ( Renegade-x.com ). After many elaborate guesses and some pretty close dissections of the riddle, some figured it out: Black Dawn.

Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn is a standalone singleplayer demo, featuring the UDK. Captain Nick "Havoc" Parker is back, and in a new original level designed from scratch by Totem Arts. The Brotherhood of Nod has captured the renowned GDI scientist Dr. Ignatio Mobius, and have taken him to an island stronghold. GDI's only hope in getting back Mobius is through the use of force!

*Capture the enemy beachhead under the covering fire of Gunboats!
*Fight in large scale and covert battles!
*Witness cinematics, A-10 strikes, cruise missiles, Ion Cannons, hovercrafts, and much more!
*See the new, improved, and standalone Renegade X visual and audio experience!

It will act as a preliminary demonstration and a first-hand experience of the new face of Renegade X on the UDK, and what is has to offer. Most of what is being made for Black Dawn will be incorporated in the later multiplayer release of Renegade X - this will act as a step-up towards that final goal.

Will any attempt be made to recover some of the functionality initially intended for the campaign when Renegade was first made public knowledge?
For example some ability to call in airstrikes, or at least tertiary objectives that will allow similar events to take place? Example: Take out the SAM and paint a laser target.

To be honest, I expected nothing more from you guys than a multiplayer remake, so just this is a pleasant, if not incredible surprise.

Is that Avenged Sevenfold in the trailer? Can't put my finger on the song but isn't it a track from Waking the Fallen?

Oh, it appears to be a guitar cover of the piano bridge in I won't See You Tonight Pt. 1

No you're right. Our composer Sebastian and Fobby both worked on the track called Blinded which is a remix of one of the solos from A7X. I also forgot what song it was, but it is epic. You can download it.

It's a personal favourite, so we decided to do a cover of one of the parts in the song Blinded :) You can find the full song in our downloads section.

Same here. I still play Renegade online sometimes and it's fun, but I didn't want to buy UT3 just for 1 mod and it seems patience is virtue :)

I hope renegade X is planning to beef up on the original renegade especially in the MP factor, possibly bigger bases?
