Renegade X is a mod dedicated to recreating C&C Renegade in the new generation engine, the Unreal Engine 3. We all believe the Command and Conquer series is a very special one, and its fans have been following its games for over a decade now. C&C has been one of the most successful videogame series in the RTS Genre. Our modding team believes that C&C Renegade is truly a hidden gem in the FPS genre. C&C Renegade's specialty was its multiplayer mode, because it was not mindless killing like most games. A player was thrown into a battle as soon as he joined a server, in which teamplay was the only way to win. The game revolves around a war between the Global Defense Initiative, and the Brotherhood of Nod. Each faction would have their own base of operations consisting of buildings. A team had to work together to destroy the enemy base, while keeping theirs intact. Obelisk/Advanced Guard Tower (Base defenses) Without these, your team has no automatic defense.

Hey guys!

10 days until the Black Dawn release! This is the first in a series of 10 blog posts which will be put out until January 28th 2012, the release date of Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn.

Renegade X is a Tactical FPS game with RTS elements. On January 28th, we will be releasing a short singleplayer campaign (Operation Black Dawn) as a demonstration of what is to come in the future. The release date of the final multiplayer version is still to be announced, and hence, we thought it would be good for you to have something to play while you wait. Black Dawn will be a 1-2 hour experience for most people, complete with custom cinematics. It will be an opportunity for you to get used to all the weapons, vehicles, characters, and changes before the upcoming multiplayer release.

In these short blog updates, we will discuss Black Dawn, its characters, and its development process over the last year and a half.

Blog 1: The Backstory

Operation Black Dawn takes place on a small island in the Black Sea. The island has been turn into a fortress belonging to the Brotherhood of Nod, an international terrorist organization.

Satellite images show that the island is heavily defended: automated turrets lie on all shores, and troop patrols roam the island day and night. Although it is unclear if Nod forces have access to sophisticated anti-aircraft batteries, there are large forests stretching across the island which obstruct the view of satellites.

On a recent trip to the Tiber River in Italy, Tiberium research specialist Dr. Ignatio Mobius and his daughter Sydney Mobius were captured by Nod's Black Hand elite team.

The UN's Global Defense Initiative, an international military force committed to world order and peacekeeping, has been authorized to conduct a secret naval operation. GDI intelligence has confirmed that the Black Hand smuggled the scientists and other prisoners of war onto a ship to Albania, where they were then flown via C-130 to this Nod island stronghold. Since Dr. Mobius is GDI's leading scientist in the field of Tiberium, he is a valuable asset and must be safely returned before the contagious spread of Tiberium further harms the world population and environment.

Hence, the objective of "Operation Black Dawn" is to destroy the Nod base and recover the scientists. Two GDI battalions have been dispatched to deploy on the southern and eastern shores of the island. The battalion to the east is to distract Nod forces, while a commando team attacks the southern beachhead, flanks the enemy and infiltrates the Nod base with air and ground support.


The commando team will be led by Nick "Havoc" Parker. Havoc, who grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, joined the United States Marine Corps at a young age. He quickly became recognized for his rough and tough attitude and bloated ego, which made him unpopular with his superiors. His service was unconventional but effective, and it made him a public relations nightmare for the Marine Corps.

He was recruited by the GDI because of his proficiency with weapons and impressive war record. He was assigned to GDI's elite Dead 6 commando unit. Eventually, Havoc, due to the drawn-out anti-Nod campaign in northern Egypt, was dismissed from the unit and began operating solo, using his special forces training to fight Nod his own way, although still nominally under GDI control.

In this operation, you play as Havoc, and you'll be fighting alongside two old friends from the Dead 6 and some other familiar faces and voices. We will be covering the other characters gradually in the next ten days!

That's it for now. Be sure to check out THIS THREAD for the next 10 updates. See you all tomorrow!

Can't see em either, using Google Chrome on a kick-*** custom built ?(by me) comp, so that ain't the problem. But, if you check out the linked thread on their forums, it will display the images. Oh, and I really want to play this.

Parker alone against a whole fortress of Nod? Sounds unfair. He should fight left-handed.

Sounds very good and promising a lot of fun. But a silly question: Will the game only available in english or even later in other languages like german, french or spanish?

We posted the update with the images from IndieDB, I don't know what's the problem. The update didn't make it to the front page either.
