Now I can’t be the only one here that was a fan of Command & Conquer: Renegade. Sure, it has its issues but come on, it was a nice change to actually see all building and vehicles in first person perspective. And in case you were unaware of, Renegade X is a Tactical FPS mod for Unreal Tournament 3, bringing the world of Command & Conquer to current generation. Renegade X: Black Dawn will be released in January 28th, 2012 and here is some new information about it, as well as its pre-release teaser trailer.
Renegade X: Black Dawn is a singleplayer mini-campaign that will precede the coveted Renegade X multiplayer release. The United Nations’ “Global Defense Initiative” (GDI), an international military force set to eliminate terror networks around the world, has discovered a secret island stronghold in the Black Sea believed to be linked to the defiant Brotherhood of Nod, an ancient and secret society looking to dismantle world governments and install its own New World Order. Players will take the role of Captain Nick “Havoc” Parker, a rough and tough GDI commando leading a special forces team into the heart of enemy territory: Operation Black Dawn.
Black Dawn is not a long campaign, but it is a step towards the team’s full version. It will be complete with many weapons, vehicles, scores of new features, cinematics and dialogue, and much more. It will be available in just over a month, and best of all, it will be a fully standalone title! System requirements will be the same with pretty much every other UDK games.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
