Renegade X launches in February, no versions of UT required

Promises all the nukes and orbital strikes you can point a pixelated dog at.

I remember playing Command & Conquer: Renegade at a small LAN party well over a decade ago. At the time I remember thinking how much fun it was even though there was only four of us and the map could fit about 32. A lot of games are like that, spoiled by an ignorant crowd too busy playing something more mediocre.

If you were one of those unfortunate souls who missed C&C Renegade back in the day, the time to rectify your mistake has come. Renegade X, the free fan remake of the FPS-RTS hybrid, will go live to the public on February 26 next year. And unlike previous Renegade X releases, this one is standalone rather than being a mod for Unreal Tournament.

“Renegade X is not an ordinary game. We are bringing the popular “Command & Conquer” RTS series to ground level as a large-scale team-based tactical shooter,” the announcement on the Renegade X forums says. “The multiplayer release will be a beta. That means that although all core features will be in the game, it will not be the finished product. We plan on releasing patches, new maps, and new features throughout 2014.”

The developers also admitted that the throttling of Victory Games (EALA) was a contributor to the delays behind Renegade X 1.0, which was originally scheduled for release this year. “Without going into much detail, Victory Games was going to provide a supportive role in advertisement, distribution, and server and client-side features. Now that Victory Games has closed, we have a few more tasks on our hands.”

On the bright side, at least someone is still doing something positive with the Command & Conquer IP. You can watch the trailer for Renegade X below.
