Renegade Ops Out Now on PSN

Renegade Ops Out Now on PSN

It’s been many, many months in the making, but as you’ll have noticed yesterday, we’ve unleashed Renegade Ops onto PSN as part of the PSN PLAY promotion. We’re incredibly pleased to be part of this new promotion, and hope that you are ready to help General Bryant and the Renegades defeat the tyrannical Inferno and thwart his dastardly plans.

Hopefully you already have a good idea of what the game is about, you may remember I did ramble at length in previous blog posts such as Meet the Team, and Let’s talk about upgrades, but if not allow me to give you a quick reminder; Inferno is threatening to detonate bombs in capital cities around the world, unless his demands are met, and it is in the hands of the Renegade Ops team that the safety of the world now rests. General Bryant and his crack team are taking their range of vehicles, weapons and various specialities to the battlefields to destroy the Inferno threat once and for all.

If you haven’t had the chance to try the game yet, then please help yourself to the trial that is now available via PlayStation Store; we’re confident that once you’ve had this game in your hands for a couple of minutes that you’ll be converted. Not only does the game have a lengthy single-player campaign, but you can also play co-operatively via local split-screen, and you and up to three friends can tackle the Inferno menace online. This is where the game truly excels, as there’s nothing quite like teaming up with your friends and laying waste to countless enemies, destructible buildings and racing each other to upgrade drops and objectives. The game is about teamwork, but you don’t always have be the nice guy or gal.

So many games!

I Downloaded the demo but have yet to try it out. If I like it, will try to slip this game in before the fall onslaught.

It does look very nice and seems to capture that old school arcade co-op feel.

As a side note to Avalanche, Just Cause 2 was GREAT! Keep it up!

Does this game allow you to play split screen and online with two others at the same time?

Also, Just Cause 3 anytime soon?! :D hehe

I originally intended to buy this simply because I ended up buying all of the other games that were apart of Play. After playing it for a bit, it just might be my favorite of the 4 games. check out the demo.

i bought the game and I have to say that it is pretty fantastic. The Demo did win me over.

However, I did experience a game breaking glitch.

In the first mission, when you are suppose to enter the helicopter, I actually had entered the helicopter prior to it being the main objective. This resulted in the game not realizing that I had gotten into the helicopter, and I basically sat there and watched the timer tick down and failed the mission. I would love for this to be fixed.

Thanks!

This wasn’t on my radar until I played the demo. It was just too much fun not to buy.

Hmm… I might give this one a try later. I haven’t even touched half the games I’ve downloaded since getting PS+ haha. Maybe I’ll download the demo tonight; gotta save my money for BF3 :P

hey mia.. I have to yet play the demo or tail. but i know it good game. becuase sega always does good work. Im old sega fan from back inthe day before playstation came out only reason on playstation is becuase sega dont have console anymore.

But i do think this partenership is very good the playstaion and sega partner ship. we would love to see more hard to get sega games on the console. I cant think of any off the top of my head but I think one was called nights or knights. That game would be perfect for ps move if you guys every brought it over and intergrated it.

When will developers/marketers realize that at $15 you are no longer an impulse buy.

my breaking point is $6 so maybe start thinking about that.

Im not paying this much for these mini-games for me to play them about 15 minutes then get bored.

After completing mission #3 in co-op, I noticed that all of my purchased upgrades had been reset on the character I was using. I have upgrade points, but I’ve lost everything I previously upgraded. My character level is still there, though. Not sure if I was refunded my spending points or not, can’t tell.

I’ve noticed a few freezing issues. Once after I loaded the game and it got stuck on the title screen. Then it froze again when I left the pause screen on too long. It also froze when I started the game for the very first time and when I went to check the leader-boards.

Besides that, I really like the game! I just wish the mission would still count in co-op even if you run out of lives and your partner(s) finish.

I Still have to try the demo…but looks fun and great…I guess I’ll pick this soon.

Wow SEGA way to release a broken game. Just did a mission online and when I check my upgrades they are all gone. My level is still the same and the only points I have are ones that I did not use prior to playing online. I hope you read this because this is a serious problem. This needs a patch ASAP.

Sorry to hear that you’ve run into a technical issue! Please be sure to send a message describing your problem to CSescalations@Sega.com so we can address them as soon as possible.

Froze again towards the end of a mission. Very disappointing and frustrating.

I sent an e-mail to that contact you specified. I hope things get sorted out soon.

I hate buying a game only to be ignored by the developers when the game has issues. Please don’t be like that.

Just curious sega, why birds eye view, i was hoping 1st person view now that would of been sweet

It’s a top-down shooter. First-person would make absolutely no sense. It would have to be a completely different game.

I’m late to commenting on this because I’ve been enjoying this game SO much! The graphics are superb and the fun is off the wall! Thank you for this. I’ve had no regrets about pre-ordering the four PLAY games (with the Plus discount) and I still have Payday to look forward to. Sweet!

Any cheapskates fussing over the price: the quality is more than worthy of the cost. It costs the same as taking your girlfriend out to Burger King, and since you don’t have a girlfriend, you can stay home and get the game (j/k lol).

+ Brandon_2535 on September 15th, 2011 at 11:53 pm said:

I thought Burger King had some sort of dollar menu. Either way, I agree about the annoyance of people complaining about the price. The games on the PlayStation Store have always been priced like that. Nothing has changed, so I don’t see why everyone feels the need to continuously complain. If you don’t like it, good for you. You don’t need to post about it every time a game is shown. You think the developers are going to lower the price just because you keep complaining? Absolutely not.

Back on topic, I loved the game! I wish there would of been more helicopter game-play, though. Maybe some future DLC?

Please look at the technical issues, though. There’s quite a bit of freezing and a lot of people are experiencing the bug where your upgrades get reset after playing online co-op.

I’m very disappointed; I just bought this game, and I can barely play without it freezing up my PS3 so I have to manually restart it. This really peeves me off. I made it to Level 4 and can’t finish it because it freezes up each and every time I play. I feel ripped off. Anyone else having this much trouble?

+ fenixxark on September 18th, 2011 at 8:13 am said:

UPDATE:

So I discovered that the in-game freezing is only temporary. I guess I was impatient, but after waiting 30 seconds I’ve never seen a game “un-freeze”. This game does. It will resume as normal (with some temporary audio anomalies) after perhaps one minutes. Also, after a level completes it may take around a full minute for the cut scene to start playing. Very bizarre behavior which I believe is a result of a rushed released. This is becoming more and more common, i.e. Dead Island.
