Bangs For Your Bucks: Renegade Ops DLC

By John Walker on December 20th, 2011.

Brrrrrrrrrrr.

There’s more of Avalanche’s Renegade Ops appearing today. The breezy and fun (sez Brendan) top-down action gets bigger with two paid-for DLC offerings. You’ve got the Reinforcement Pack (called the Vehicle Pack in the US, for some reason), and the Coldstrike Campaign, and they’re cheaper on PC than anywhere else.

Wot I Think: Renegade Ops

By Brendan Caldwell on November 11th, 2011.

Brendan’s going to tell you all about Renegade Ops, and he doesn’t care. No, he really doesn’t care. Here’s Wot He Thinks:

Boisterous. I guess that’s the word for it. Renegade Ops is boisterous, in the same way as kicking a football around inside the house is boisterous, or building a fortress out of sofas and lampshades is boisterous. Renegade Ops is a game that’s decidedly shallow and not very inventive but there’s something about it that makes me not care about all that. This dual-schtick-em-up never truly makes me feel like a kid again but it does a great job of reminding me that I was one. A tiny, one-person wrecking ball. Absolutely no regard for my environment or actions, driven solely by a deep hunger for fun.

Rogue Physicist: Freeman In Renegade Ops

By Adam Smith on September 26th, 2011.

that's the face he pulls when he's smelling the ashes

Seeing that picture could have put all kinds of ideas in your head, which is why I didn’t make the headline cruelly vague. What it all actually denotes is Gordon Freeman’s rather surprising presence in the Steam version of Renegade Ops, Avalanche’s top-down, four player vehicle-based destructathon. Gordon will be driving his buggy and he’s bringing some antlions along to use in a special attack. Oh, Gordon, you’re so science. Avalanche did promise some extras for the Steam version of the game after delivering it to console-dwellers before we PC folk and it’s good of them to follow through on that promise. They’ve even given us a Gordon-specific trailer along with a release date: October 14th.

Renegade Ops: It’s Out Soonish

By Lewie Procter on September 15th, 2011.


When is a launch trailer not a launch trailer? That’s right, kids, when the game isn’t due out for another couple of weeks. That’s the awkward situation Renegops has thrust us into: It has just came out on the consoles, but isn’t going to be gracing the PC with it’s presence until later on this month. Still, we’ve got pretty moving pictures to keep ourselves entertained in the meantime: Read the rest of this entry »

Just ‘Cos: Renegade Ops Preview

By Alec Meer on August 17th, 2011.

Is this screenshot higher or lower resolution than the original Micro Machines? This is your Wednesday riddle.

This tiny ode to destruction is perhaps best described as angry Micro Machines. Or, if you’ve sensibly passed the point where ritually namechecking 16-bit games is any way useful or meaningful, ‘that one with the death-spewing car the size of a thumbnail.’ Throw in that it comes from the creators of the gleefully absurd Just Cause 2 and I’m immediately side-stepping the uninspiring name and paying close attention. Willfully stupid, Renegade Ops is a game about driving a tiny buggy around a series of lush, top-down environments and riddling pretty much anything you run into with bullets, rockets, railguns and airstrikes. It’s a twin-stick shooter with a car, impeccably-rendered tropical trees and a mind for mayhem.

Remember Renegade Ops? Okay Then.

By Lewie Procter on August 17th, 2011.


Renegade Ops, or “Renegops” as probably no one but me will call it, the upcoming top-down arcade blast ‘em up from Avalanche Studios, has got itself a new video-trailer thing. I hope you like weapons and upgrade systems, because that’s what it is showing off: Read the rest of this entry »

Avalanche Go To The Arcades: Renegade Ops

By John Walker on March 31st, 2011.

Imagine it's a screenshot!

RENEGADE OPS! That’s how I’m going to be pronouncing that game’s name. Shouted, every time. It’s a name that needs bellowing. But before you put on your haughty trousers, there’s likely to be a touch of irony about such a bombastic name, since this is coming from Just Cause developers, Avalanche. It’s described as a “twin stick vehicle shooter”, according to Eurogamer, planned to be released as a download-only, arcade-style, top-down shoot-them-up. Phew.
