First, I’d like to congratulate Totem Arts and the Renegade X community on its 5th anniversary! It’s been five years since we originally announced Renegade X as an Unreal Tournament 3 mod. Since then, we’ve released five multiplayer betas on UT3, and in the past year and a half, we’ve been working on the standalone version of Renegade X. We hope the coming year is as kind to us as our previous years!
And what better day to release our singleplayer campaign - Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn.
WHAT IS RENEGADE X?
Renegade X is an indie standalone game, bringing the world of Command & Conquer to ground level. Renegade X is a tactical First Person Shooter with RTS elements, featuring two unique factions, each with distinctive weapons and vehicles. With stunning visuals and remarkable gameplay, Renegade X aims to push the Unreal Engine 3 to its climax.

OPERATION: BLACK DAWN
Renegade X is both a singleplayer and multiplayer game. On January 28th 2012, Totem Arts released “Renegade X: Black Dawn”. Black Dawn is a free, standalone, short 1-2 hour singleplayer game we have been preparing for quite some time now. Although most of Renegade X’s aspirations are in the multiplayer realm, in mid-2010, we decided that a short campaign would precede our upcoming standalone multiplayer beta.
Black Dawn is a demonstration of what is to come in the future. The release date of the final multiplayer version is still to be announced, and hence, we thought it would be good for you to have something to play while you wait. This demonstration is complete with a short 10-part campaign, custom cinematics and fantastic gameplay. It will be an opportunity for you to get used to all the weapons, vehicles, characters, and changes before the upcoming multiplayer release.

Operation Black Dawn takes place on a small island in the Black Sea. The island has been turn into a fortress belonging to the Brotherhood of Nod, an international terrorist organization.
Satellite images show that the island is heavily defended: automated turrets lie on all shores, and troop patrols roam the island day and night. Although it is unclear if Nod forces have access to sophisticated anti-aircraft batteries, there are large forests stretching across the island which obstruct the view of satellites.
On a recent trip to the Tiber River in Italy, Tiberium research specialist Dr. Ignatio Mobius and his daughter Sydney Mobius were captured by Nod's Black Hand elite team.
The UN's Global Defense Initiative, an international military force committed to world order and peacekeeping, has been authorized to conduct a secret naval operation. GDI intelligence has confirmed that the Black Hand smuggled the scientists and other prisoners of war onto a ship to Albania, where they were then flown via C-130 to this Nod island stronghold. Since Dr. Mobius is GDI's leading scientist in the field of Tiberium, he is a valuable asset and must be safely returned before the contagious spread of Tiberium further harms the world population and environment.
Hence, the objective of "Operation Black Dawn" is to destroy the Nod base and recover the scientists. Two GDI battalions have been dispatched to deploy on the southern and eastern shores of the island. The battalion to the east is to distract Nod forces, while a commando team attacks the southern beachhead, flanks the enemy and infiltrates the Nod base with air and ground support.

Congratulations, you got me majorly hocked just by posting a few screenshots and reading your story, checking out your website now, and the game is downloading as well. Cant wait to give this a try this weekend! It looks totally amazing.
Seen this before and a keen follower of the game/mod. I was just wondering if you've had any trouble with it being Command & Conquer. Any legal issues at all? Obviously, there is the Renegade C&C game which is obviously the basis for this. Just wondered is all.
Anyway downloading now, look forward to playing. Keep up the good work!
