|Prague, Czech Republic, 26th July 2012 – Induction – After leaking an obscure teaser last week, Bohemia Interactive has revealed Carrier Command: Recruits – an episodic series of free mini-games connected by an overarching storyline. It lets players sample the Carrier Command vibe while enabling them to win a digital copy of Carrier Command: Gaea Mission.
Spread over four episodes, Carrier Command: Recruits follows the player as he or she obtains the position of Technical Analyst for the UEC – the protagonist’s faction. The story is set right before the events in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission and requires players to unravel a mysterious plot by completing a diverse set of challenges. The first episode, Head Hunting, has been released today and invites players to an UEC recruitment session.
Korneel van ‘t Land, Brand & PR Manager at Bohemia Interactive, elaborates:
“While we’re gearing up for Gamescom, where many people will get to go hands-on with Carrier Command: Gaea Mission for the first time, this mini-games-series jumps in as an entertaining and free initiative to give people an early taste of the main game’s atmosphere”.
As they puzzle and sneak their way towards the series’ conclusion, people will come a across a variety of familiar and unfamiliar game concepts – each taking about 15 minutes to complete. After today’s release of episode 1, the second and third episode will be made available over the course of the next two weeks.

About Carrier Command: Gaea Mission
Based on a groundbreaking 80s classic, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission takes place on the breathtaking planetoid Taurus and revolves around the conflict between the Asian Pacific Alliance and the United Earth Coalition. The game floats a refreshing combination of 1st/3rd-person action – letting players take instant and direct control of any unit at any time – with real-time strategy elements, like commanding units, managing resources and customizing equipment. In command of an armed vehicle carrier, players will traverse the seas to engage in free-roaming combat and establish a strategic network of island bases for mining, manufacturing and defense. The game is scheduled for a PC and Xbox 360® release on 27 September 2012.
