The latest trailer for Totem Arts' shooter set in the Command and Conquer universe, Renegade X, offers a look at combat across various environments for both of the game's battling factions.

The video above shows the online tactical shooter — an homage to 2002 first-person shooter Command and Conquer: Renegade — in action, which ditches the traditional overhead view of Command and Conquer titles for a third-person perspective on ground level. The title will be available for free — "not free-to-play, not pay-to-win, just straight up free," according to the video. Viewers can a look at some close-quarters maps packed with soldiers on foot as well a desert environment featuring flying drones.

According to the video, players will have two different factions to choose from when playing: the Global Defense Initiative, an international military force led by the United Nations dedicated to keeping world peace, and the Brotherhood of Nod, a network of messianic terrorists trying to lead the world into what they believe is the next stage of human evolution. As well as each other, players will have to contend with crumbling environments and will have an arsenal of 30 weapons and 15 vehicles at their disposal.

The title was meant to ship early last year, but after the closing of developer Victory Games, which Totem Arts reported was in a supporting role on Renegade X, the game was delayed.

Renegade X, which has been in development for six years, will launch in open beta for Windows PC on Feb. 26.
