Check out the gameplay modes in new Renegade Ops trailer

Here's a new trailer for Renegade Ops, showing off the gameplay modes that can be found within. For those who don't know, Renegade Ops is a top-down co-op vehicular shooter made by Avalanche. It has a generic name, and the gameplay is fun.  Check out the footage and let us know what you think. I'm pretty stoked.

Renegade Ops has new screens, still has awful name

As you might have gathered, we're all big fans of Renegade Ops at Destructoid. It's a really fun top-down vehicular shooter from the fine folk who brought you Just Cause 2. With a storyline ripped from Saturday morning cartoo...

E3: Renegade Ops is a great game with a shit name photo
E3: Renegade Ops is a great game with a shit name
by Jim Sterling

When I saw the logo for Renegade Ops at SEGA's expansive booth, I felt my eyes dry up and shrivel with sheer, unadulterated apathy. The name sounds like a crappy generic military shooter from the likes of City Interactive or another lower-tier publisher. I can't think of a less appealing title. 

It was much to my surprise, then, that I found out Renegade Ops is like Micro Machines with guns. A top-down shooter in which you control a little car that skids and rolls around with insanely fun physics, Renegade Ops plays exactly like a game NOT called Renegade Ops. There's been a lot of grassroots discussion around the game at E3, and with good reason -- it's just bloody fun. 

The game boasts four-player co-op and each car has its own specialization. The one I controlled could periodically release EMP blasts that immobilized enemies -- a very useful skill since enemies are in abundance and range from pitiful humans to full-on tanks. All of them will be decimated as you complete simple objectives and grab as many points as possible to do better than your team mates.
