New trailer defines the Fundamentals of Warfare in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission
London, UK – 21 Septembe 2012 – Just eight days away from launch, Bohemia Interactive has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming Windows PC & Xbox 360® video game, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission. The new ‘Fundamentals of Warfare’ trailer highlights the core mechanics to showcase the refreshing gameplay contained within the game.
Based on the groundbreaking classic from 1988, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission blends first- and third-person vehicular combat with tactical and strategic elements. Set in a massive game environment – consisting of 33 unique islands hosting 6 distinct climatic zones – players are put in command of a futuristic military carrier holding a multitude of remotely controllable and customizable units. By traversing the seas and establishing a strategic network of island bases for mining, production and defense, players will set out to destroy the enemy carrier and conquer the archipelago on planet Taurus.
The game features the Gaea Mission campaign, in which players follow a rich storyline involving Lt Myrik, a soldier of the United Earth Coalition who has been sent on a mission to defeat the Asian Pacific Alliance. Alternatively, people can go head on with a mode similar to the original Carrier Command. This mode, named Strategy Game, enables players to set starting parameters such as enemy strength and available resources, which determine the difficulty and length of a game.
Bohemia Interactive’s Carrier Command: Gaea Mission will be in stores for both Windows PC & Xbox 360 on September 28, 2012 in Europe (and October 2, 2012 in North America).
