Renegade X is a tactical first and third person shooter developed by Totem Arts. The aim of the project is to recreate and modernize Westwood Studios' Command & Conquer: Renegade multiplayer experience. Originally envisioned as a remake of the game in Unreal Engine 3, Renegade X has evolved into more of a spiritual successor. Featuring updated gameplay, improved balance, enhanced graphics, intricate strategic depth, and a new approach to map design, Renegade X aims to improve upon the original.

Development[edit | edit source]

Totem Arts was formed by Bilal Haj-Bakri ([NE]Fobby[Gen]) and Waqas Iqbal (Havoc89) as a volunteer team in 2006 with the aim of remaking Renegade as a total conversion mod for Unreal Tournament 3. The project was originally titled Renegade 2007.

The mod was publicly released on 30 September 2009 and received multiple awards. After the 0.55 beta, the mod is no longer being developed as a modification for UT3, but as a free standalone game using Unreal Development Kit (UDK). As a result, the 0.55 beta is still available from the site, but no longer supported or patched by the development team.

On 28 January 2012, Totem Arts released a demo called Renegade X: Black Dawn, a short standalone singleplayer game. The multiplayer version was first released on 26 February 2014 as an open beta, with Black Dawn missions excluded.

On 20 June 2020, a new expansion game mode titled Firestorm was announced. The game mode features infantry, vehicles, and buildings from the Tiberian Sun era, and players will able to seamlessly swap between Renegade X and Firestorm maps via end of round map voting. Firestorm will also feature larger maps and limited base building. Originally slated to release in fall 2020, the game mode was delayed to 2021 after reevaluations in gameplay mechanics.[4]
