'Renegade X: Beyond Black Dawn' Revealed - Screens

Renegade X: Beyond Black Dawn is an FPS game bringing the world of Command & Conquer to ground level, on the Unreal Engine 3. The aim of this project is to recreate Westwood Studios’ Command & Conquer: Renegade and bring back a revamped version of its multiplayer experience.

Renegade X offers the impeccable visuals and compatibility of the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). Play in exotic level environments, and use a plethora of different weapons, vehicles, characters, and superweapons to defeat the opposing team.

There are two unique factions that players can fight for: the noble Global Defense Initiative (GDI), a UN global military force seeking to eliminate terrorism and encourage progress, and the mysterious Brotherhood of Nod, an ancient cult, secret society and globalized network of paramilitary terrorists worldwide. Each team has its own array of arms and structures and tactic styles.

"With the UDK, we see a glowing opportunity to bring Renegade X to its climax. Over the summer, we've written a new Game Design Document and began executing our new vision for the project - we want Renegade X to be less of a remake, and more of a spiritual successor to Westwood's classic in 2002. Renegade X will still be the Command & Conquer FPS everyone knows and loves, but brought to the modern day. Some innovations have been inspired by other contemporary FPS games, while others have always existed within the team and community, and it is only now that we are bringing these things to life. We want to emphasize the "X" in Renegade X.

Other changes are not necessarily gameplay oriented - our visual, audio, and animation work is constantly evolving."
