If you have been following the development of the awesome Renegade X first-person shooter (FPS) video games development over the last six years. You will be pleased to leaner that a final released of the finished game will officially commence on Feb 26th 2014 on PC and will be free to play.
Renegade X started as a mod for Unreal Tournament 3 and has been designed to include the multiplayer aspects of the popular Command & Conquer: Renegade game to a newly updated games engine. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Renegade X game and see it in action.
Renegade X players will be able to choose to fight for one of two factions within the game the Global Defense Initiative (GDI), a UN international military force committed to world order and peacekeeping.
Or the Brotherhood of Nod, a messianic international terrorist network that aims to push humanity into the next stage of human evolution. Renegade X developers explain that:
“Players will be able to manage their own economies, choose from over 30 weapons, 15 vehicles, and call in nuclear strikes, Ion Cannons, and airstrikes, and much more.
Each team will have a base of operations that composes of several key structures. Each structure has its own purpose. For example, the GDI Barracks gives GDI players access to special weapons and characters. If the Barracks is destroyed by Nod forces, GDI will lose the ability to purchase these special weapons”
