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.

Quote

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.”

      W3D Hub has released version 3.1.0.0 of Red Alert: A Path Beyond. This is the first major version since the first Delta release, with quite a lot of changes. The most important ones are the availability of Soviet Airfields and Yaks, Thieves being able to steal 33% of ore from ore silos on any map, Radar Domes having a special terminal for airlifting basic vehicles when the War Factory goes down, Redeye/Strela weapons no longer having homing characteristics, Grenadiers no longer having an "artillery form", and lots of balance changes, tweaks and aesthetic improvements. Check out the full changelog here and if you haven't done so already, get the W3D Hub Launcher from here.

      W3D Hub have posted the list of changes, fixes and upgrades that are coming in the next major release of Red Alert: A Path Beyond. The list is rather detailed.
      No date has been mentioned that tell us when this release will be made available. But it can't be too far away. The original post can be found here.

      W3D Hub has released updates on Red Alert: A Path Beyond and Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising. The APB update concerns the changelog for patch 3.0.8.2, which fixes the netcode, adds zoom cameras for Tesla Tanks and Phase Tanks, enables Tesla Tanks to reveal Phase Tanks within 75 m, and slightly rebalances the game, among other tweaks. Updating to this version is necessary if you are to participate in tonight's APB Game Night at 7 PM GMT. The AR one shows off two Allied and one Soviet infantry unit, and shows how far the graphics department got.
