Renegade X trailer asks you to just do it up


Renegade X is an fan-made reimagining of C&C: Renegade—the Command & Conquer FPS that seemingly everyone liked more than I did. A new trailer has emerged alongside the game's Open Beta #4 update, which adds new maps, modding tools and an in-game jukebox, among other changes.

Here's a list of the patch's main features:

  • 3 new levels: Under, Canyon, and Complex.
  • Auto-patcher
  • Modding/mapping tools
  • Ingame Jukebox
  • Smoke Grenades
  • Vehicle drops
  • Building destruction changes: tier one infantry remain accessible after Hand/Bar destruction, Refinery and Powerplant destruction less severe
  • Optimization for better performance and crash fixes
  • Vehicle kill messages (seeing what destroyed your vehicle)
  • Timed C4 countdown (audio and visual indicators)
  • EMP grenade changes
  • Pawn and vehicle movement adjustments
  • New vehicle locking system
  • Idle-player kicking system (with warnings)
  • Improved spotting system and radio visuals
  • New Havoc/Sakura specific explosive arrangements
  • New C&C-mode themed loading screen
  • Oodles of fixes, balance changes, and more

Or, if spurred on by that trailer, you just want to listen to more Frank Klepacki...
