Renegade X is a First/Third Person Tactical Shooter. Two factions, the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod (Nod), are locked into a conflict over the green and mysterious resource Tiberium. The primary game mode is Command & Conquer (C&C/CnC), where your objective is to destroy your enemy's base using any and all means necessary.


Renegade X, formerly known as Renegade 2007, Started off as an Unreal Tournament 3 Mod which saw it's first public release on September 30th, 2007. At this stage, the game only had 2 maps (Islands and Field) and were still missing certain characters and aircraft. The game received several patches over the course of over a year, but were considering to make a standalone version of the game using the then still brand new UDK engine after only a couple of months. On October 1st 2010, They released their last major patch, and after that progress mostly halted on this mod in favour of developing a standalone version, which was by then renamed to Renegade X in early 2008.

A mini-singleplayer campaign named Black Dawn was released on February 28th, 2012, about 10 years after C&C Renegade's release, which was downloaded over 200.000 times from the official website over the course of 6 months. Reasons why Black Dawn was released before the multiplayer version was explained in a Game design podcast. Several reasons were expanding the game into the Standalone territory, and to test certain aspects of the game which could already be developed in the new engine, such as models, props and weapon handling.

Development continued on a multiplayer version, and the game entered Open Beta phase on 26th February 2014, exactly 12 years after C&C Renegade's North America release. After this release, development continues up to this day, with 5 open beta versions released.


Each base consists of a set of buildings. These buildings vary from level to level, as decided by the level designer. There are a total of 8 buildings. Both teams may make use of a Power Plant to provide power to advanced base defenses, and a Refinery to provide war funds. A core component of the GDI base is the Barracks, which provides access to advanced infantry classes. For vehicles, GDI uses an on-field Weapons Factory to construct vehicles ranging from the speedy Humvee to the powerful Mammoth Tank. On levels that make use of advanced base defenses GDI uses the Advanced Guard Tower, which is armed with 4 automated gun turrets and an automated rocket turret. Similar to GDI's Barracks, the Hand of Nod provides Nod with advanced infantry classes. Instead of constructing tanks in the battle zone, Nod makes use of an Airstrip to airdrop vehicles such as Nod Artillery and Stealth Tanks. On levels that make use of advanced base defenses Nod uses the Obelisk of Light, which is armed with a powerful laser. Many maps also include one or more capturable Silos, which provide a team with a constant economic income boost.

On some levels, bases may be defended by automated defenses such as Nod Turrets, GDI Guard Towers, Nod SAM Sites, and GDI AA Towers. Manual defenses also exist, such as Rocket Emplacements and Gun Emplacements
