Story and Gamemode
Renegade X is set in the near future, in a world dominated by a contagious yet valuable resource called Tiberium. The Global Defense Initiative (GDI) is an international security force set to combat global terrorism. Conceived as a united peacekeeping military force, GDI depends on the technological sophistication of its weaponry, and the superior training and loyalties of its officers. GDI looks to halt the spread of Tiberium, which is gradually destroying the Earth and killing off millions of people. At the same time, the Brotherhood of Nod, led by the charismatic leader known only as Kane, grew to prominence. Working largely in third world countries, wherever there was discontent and unrest, there was Kane. With the promise of a New World Order and bankrolled by the illicit Tiberium research and trade that Kane made famous, Nod began to gain power. A few scattered, disaffected units grew into an army with powerful atomic weaponry, ruthless tactics, and a Tiberian fortune. The Brotherhood aims to push humanity into the next stage of evolution via Tiberium mutation.
Where GDI stands for international stability and the removal of the Tiberium contagion, Nod seeks to overthrow the established order and build a world centred on Tiberium research.

We are proud to release the long-awaited Renegade X SDK! With these mod tools, you will be able to create custom levels, mutators, and modifications for Renegade X.

We will do whatever we can to assist aspiring modders and level-designers to mentor and direct them accordingly.
The release of these tools have great implications. Not only will Renegade X have a sizable fanbase, but in the future, we can develop a self-sufficient community that develops new, refreshing content. We hope to inspire a new generation of developers and support existing and emerging C&C FPS mods and games through this initiative.
Beta 4 will the last phase of our Open Beta Testing. From here on out, Totem Arts will be focusing on completing the full version of Renegade X, as well as patching the game and supporting our community in any way we can. We plan on having more contests and tournaments in the coming weeks and months, and we are committed to polishing the game with its final touches and last assets for our awaited full release.
In the meantime, we will continue talks with EA to try to get permission to apply to the Steam Greenlight process. The best way to assist us in this is to spread the word about Renegade X, and to show that we have a thriving, dedicated community that brings life to Command & Conquer. We will be sure to keep you updated with any important details.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all again. Let us know what you think – connect with us and the community through our website, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Soon enough, you’ll be hearing from us again. But for now, enjoy the game!
