A new promotion has launched for Rising Star Games and Bohemia Interactive’s upcoming action-strategy title, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission. Beginning today, players can try their hand at the first of four mini-games from Command: Recruits, an episodic series that serves as a prelude to Carrier Command. Set shortly before the events in Gaea Mission, Recruits features an overarching storyline that reveals more of the Carrier Command universe as players solve puzzles as an UEC Technical Analyst. The first episode, Head Hunting, details the UEC’s recruiting program.
As a bonus, players who complete an episode and share their progress on Facebook or Twitter before August 20 will be guaranteed access to the beta. In addition, they will also be entered into a contest for one of five digital copies (PC) of Gaea Mission. Head Hunters is now available at the official site, and the rest of the three episodes will launch in the weeks between now and mid-August.
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is scheduled to launch for 360 and PC in Q3 2012.
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.
