    Renegade X is an FPS total conversion mod, bringing the world of Command & Conquer to ground level, on the Unreal Engine 3. Our latest version, Renegade X v0.5 requires Unreal Tournament 3, but the team is now in the process of porting the project to the Unreal Development Kit, which will mean that Renegade X will be fully standalone in all future releases.

    With over 12,000 downloads and 5 awards, the Renegade X beta, for Unreal Tournament 3, is available for download here. You can watch our 1 minute 18 second launch trailer here.

    A few weeks ago, the team announced Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn. Black Dawn is a singleplayer mission and a demonstration of some of the game's latest features, coming soon to a computer near you. You play as the GDI commando, Captain Nick "Havoc" Parker, in a GDI invasion of a Nod island stronghold. The goal of this operation is to rescue Dr. Ignatio Mobius, a renowned GDI Tiberium scientist, captured by the Brotherhood of Nod. GDI gunboats, hovercrafts, aircraft, superweapons, vehicles, and grunts will support you in your struggle against the Nod military machine.

    Watch the Black Dawn teaser trailer here.

    Day Cycle System

    The team has recently managed to get a working day-cycle into Renegade X: Black Dawn. This will create a new, unique atmospheric experience, as some elements of the game's lighting will be fully dynamic. The visual and even gameplay depth this system adds almost speaks for itself, but we've got some new jaw-dropping images just in case.

    And in terms of new features offered in Renegade X on the UDK, this is just the beginning.

    Sydney and Hotwire

    I want to introduce you all to two new ladies in Renegade X:

    This is Sydney Mobius, the daughter of Dr. Ignatio Mobius. She is one of GDI's best, wielding a 1000-credit Personal Ion Cannon, capable of inflicting massive damage to all enemy infantry, vehicles, and aircraft.

    Shai "Hotwire" Aviv

    A tough-as-nails commando and a woman of few words. Prior to joining GDI, Shai Aviv was a member of the Israeli Mossad, where she served with distinction. When she joined the GDI special commandos unit "Dead-6", she took on the roles of tactical engineer, proving to be an invaluable asset on the battlefield, when vehicle repair, structure capturing and demolitions were needed.

    This doesn't look anything like command and conquer anymore.

    On the forums, the very first thread in the general section i believe is for people to apply to be on the team. Aka you submit a portfolio and they base their decision on that and talking to you.

    @Empty - What do you mean?

    I can't even tell if the (commando?) in the last screenshot is on GDI or Nod.

    Yeah the thing about renegade is the characters, there's no choosing weapons for your character or anything like that, each character has its load out

    Not like in emp where you have 3 types on each side and they're distinguished by color, not like that really in renegade.

    Kane has to compensate.

    Looks almost exactly like cnc 3 actually, except with old style buildings, has the same feel as cnc 3 though.

    CnC was never very good, I hated the 2d ones, liked red alert 2 but now hate it because we have much better games, and dislike cnc3+ because the huge numbers of god powers kind of make the rest of the game irrelevant.

    Renegade was good but then it's a fairly basic shooter with a bunch of groovy weapons, so it's obviously going to be good given I like that sort of game.

    Visually though I thought CnC 3 was very nice.

    I never played Renegade so I'm not talking about it, but everything after RA2 was terrible imo.

    Renegade was awesome, it was the last C&C game that Westwood Studios created and it's really good

    red alert 2 beats that hands down

    zero hour is a good game though (generals is meh), just does not cut it on the long run for me and additionally its coded so so bad its laughable)
