What is Renegade?
Command & Conquer: Renegade is a first/third-person shooter set in the First Tiberium War. For the first time, players can experience the Command & Conquer universe up close and personal while fighting it out on the ground among the structures, vehicles and weapons made famous in the original C&C.
The singleplayer campaign follows Nick “Havoc” Parker, an elite GDI commando who is sent on various delicate missions that the regular GDI army can not handle. The multiplayer mode, revolutionary for its time, splits players in GDI and Nod teams, with their own pre-built bases with crucial structures (Barracks/Hand of Nod, War Factory/Airfield, Helipad, Refinery, defensive emplacements etc.) which give them the ability to change “characters” (i.e. become a different infantry unit or commando), purchase vehicles/aircraft, and receive funds. Major structures also have Master Control Terminals which are their weakest spots (and easiest to repair), which must be protected at all costs.
While the singleplayer mode has been received lukewarmly, particularly due to level design and abysmal AI, the game was highly praised for its unconventional multiplayer mode that was strikingly similar to that of Battlefield 1942 that would come out mere months later from the same publisher and, ironically, one of the same core designers.
