OpenRA is an incredible fan made project that recreates C&C (Tiberian Dawn), C&C: Red Alert, and Dune 2000, and updates them for the modern era, with optimised Full Screen HD visuals, an improved UI, new units, unit veterancy, fog of war, proper online multiplayer support and full match replays.
If you even have a passing interest in RTS games, you need OpenRA in your life – it takes the classic C&C gameplay we all know and love and updates it perfectly for the modern era – something EA has consistently failed to do for the past decade.
Renegade Xis a great looking, fan made multiplayer FPS set in the Command & Conquer universe, built on the Unreal Engine 3 and supporting up to 64 players. The game looks wonderful, with perfectly modelled C&C buildings, weapons and vehicles, it really does look and feel like an official C&C game (albeit in a first person viewpoint).
The FPS mechanics are excellent, allowing for fast paced, fluid gameplay, but there is also a large tactical element to the game. The main game mode (Command & Conquer) tasks you with destroying your enemy’s base while protecting your own. Players are able to manage their own economies, choose from over 30 weapons, 15 vehicles, and call in nuclear strikes, Ion Cannons, and airstrikes, and much more. Each team has a base of operations that composes of several key structures, each structure has its own purpose, so as they are destroyed, the team will lose a team bonus.
Renegade X is both a wonderful slice of nostalgia for those who love the C&C franchise and a refreshing new take on the FPS genre, making an excellent tactical FPS and the best C&C game for years.
More Soviets, this time the Tesla Tank, V3 Launcher and Apocalypse Tank. I’ve re-uploaded higher-res versions of the older Soviet showcase pictures, but Tumblr resizes the images so the highest quality for the group shots can be found in my Deviantart gallery. I’m trying to essentially wrap this project up soon, finishing the Soviet navy, the APCs and Aegis cruiser. Keep an eye out.
