Developer [NE]Fobby[GEN] Posted April 1, 2013 Developer Share Posted April 1, 2013 Today we are proud to announce a new singleplayer campaign. Due to the success of Black Dawn, we were asked by EA to make a sequel to the critically acclaimed triple A PC singleplayer game. For several months now, we have been working on Operation White Sun - the official sequel to Black Dawn. Due to our special connections with EA and Epic Games, which developed as they begged to be a part of the Renegade X beta testing team, we were able to get our hands on the new Unreal Engine 4. White Sun is set in the Tiberian Sun universe, and it is a sequel to our previous release, Black Dawn. Due to our new relationship with EA and Epic, we have decided to postpone the multiplayer release and halt all development of it to focus on the new singleplayer campaign. The campaign will be bigger and better than ever, with 10 hours of gameplay and 16 hours of cinematics. The game will be available on both Steam and Origin for $10 and it will be out on April 1st, 2014 (one year from today). Every purchase of Renegade X: White Sun will also include a one year subscription to a golfing magazine of your choice. In White Sun, you will be playing Angus McFarland. Critics agree that McFarland was the most developed character in the C&C universe, with Kane at a close second. Polls suggested that Havoc's role in the first game was adequate but mediocre, and therefore, we wished to extenuate the role of McFarland and explore his story in the Tiberian Sun universe. In White Sun, we plan on having unique features that no FPS game would ever dare include. A unique move that was featured in Black Dawn was McFarland's infamous grenade-golfing. White Sun would not be White Sun if such a feature were not included and expanded upon - especially with McFarland as the main character. The shotgun primary fire will project 12 pellets at a determined radius. The secondary fire will drop a frag grenade onto the ground and the game will transform into a golf mini-game. The objective of this secondary fire is to land explosive grenades onto enemy targets. We have already started working on the art for White Sun, and we would appreciate your comments and critique. Not only will you be able to launch grenades with pseudo golf clubs, but other players as well. This will allow strategic fly-by's, where you will be able to take out enemies from above them as an infantry unit. Aircraft is not always affordable, so consider this tactic a close second to air support. Another feature that has come by popular demand from the fans is a customizable timer for the Timed C4. Sometimes, 30 seconds is just too short for an explosion to take place. Sometimes, you would like half the game to pass and have the team forget that a C4 was lying nearby the whole time. This feature will allow players to add anywhere between 1 additional second to 3 additions hours to their C4 detonation time. In some matches, teams could afford many cheap tanks rather than a pricey vehicle. In White Sun, you will be able to copulate your vehicles to create beefier tanks to take on your enemies. In the below example, two Medium Tanks and an MRLS play it rough and collide into each other until the metals mesh into the desired form. In the survival of the fittest, only the finest may reproduce in order to create something even better. The team is very excited about the upcoming White Sun singleplayer campaign, which will begin beta testing next week. To participate in the beta test, you will need to promise to make a map with a singleplayer powerplant for the original Renegade - and fulfill the promise (I'm looking at you, Aircraftkiller). We already have plans written for our third and fourth singleplayers. We are most excited about our forth, nicknamed Rene-Twilight X, because it will not have any of the traditional base-building or resource-gathering of previous versions. We're looking for your feedback on this idea, but we will not listen to you and we will release the game as we are planning it. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
