Command & Conquer: Renegade, released in 2002, breaks the mold of traditional RTS gameplay by offering a first-person perspective within the iconic universe of Command & Conquer.

The game introduces an innovative multiplayer mode, where teams vie for control of the battlefield through strategic base management and direct combat.
