W3D Hub Featured on Kotaku UK


Some great promotion for the team at W3D Hub. They have been featured in a large article on Kotaku UK. Despite a few inaccuracies that are mentioned in the article, it’s great to the Command & Conquer name on a major gaming publication. The article talks about the history of C&C Renegade and W3D Hub’s current projects. Here’s a sample.


For a small community of devoted modders, Renegade lives on as the subject of enormous curiosity and experimentation. Since the game’s release, the modding team at W3D Hub has been testing the possibilities of its robust W3D Engine, using it to recreate beloved C&C titles like Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, and (in-progress) Red Alert 2 in first-person form. The attention to detail is incredible, with all the units, iconic soundtracks, and even Tanya’s famous catchphrases making it into these painstakingly-crafted standalone mods.

One member of this community, Ben Leech (currently a QA Technician at Creative Assembly), has been active since the early days of Renegade modding and, as we pass the game’s 15th birthday, he’s still as committed as ever. As with many, his fondness for Renegade stems from a love of the main C&C series. “The franchise has been dormant for a few years now, but in its glory days it really captured my imagination,” says Leech. “Good and evil were never pitched clearly and I loved how, unlike Starcraft, I didn’t have to think about my build order, but just say ‘I’ll go with this tactic now’ and have some fun with it.”

Throwback Thursday for 27th April


In this week’s Throwback Thursday feature, we look back at one of the Transformers-inspired units from Red Alert 3 – the Mecha/Jet Tengu. In its default state, the Mecha Tengu is a hovering pilot-assisted robot primarily used as an anti-infantry assault unit which can easily be massed. When the skies are not clear, it can turn into a Jet Tengu, a fast anti-aircraft fighter, in a speedy and spectacular transformation sequence. Unlike its Allied and Soviet counterparts, the Jet Tengu does not need to return to an airfield to reload, though it is not as effective as the other two.

Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don’t forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you’ve missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.
