Regarding Carrier Command, Bohemia’s Other Game

Surprise: I'm delighted that Bohemia Interactive's big, bizarre remake of Carrier Command can be played with an Xbox 360 pad.* I love Arma II, but its control scheme sometimes feels like it was designed by a randomly picking menus from a... menu. In Carrier Command, meanwhile, you control a small flotilla of vehicles as you attempt to gain control of an archipelago of thirty randomly…

11 Minutes Of Commanding Carrier Command Footage

As the slow dribble of behind-closed-doors E3 videos begin - rendering that whole "behind-closed-doors" bit a little farcical as it does every year - I suggest saving them all up and watching them all in three days, ideally in rooms about half a mile apart, with five minutes to get back and forth between them. Have those rooms be un-airconditioned, sealed off heat traps with…

Hands On (Deck): Carrier Command (Beta)

Carrier Command: Gaea Mission has entered a “play & contribute” beta, a familiar sort of exercise in which you get to play a slice of the strategy campaign – the meaty archipelago-conquering core of the game – in exchange for your pre-order. Having already dabbled in some of the story mission elements of this action-heavy strategy, I was keep to get stuck into this deeper…

Carrier Command Pre-Order Beta, Delayed Release

Last time we head from Bohemia's remake of the 1980s vehicular action-strategy masterpiece it was due for a "Q2" release, but that's now been pushed back to September. Fear not, brave carrier-captains, because a beta will soon be along to satiate your old-made-new desires. There's going to be a 20€ basic pre-order pack over here from April 6th, but you can also pay 40€ for…

Carrier Command Release Date-Ish, Plus Pics

Hello! I bring good news. The release date aiming cone for Bohemia Interactive's sci-fi action strategy game Carrier Command: Gaea Mission has narrowed. The bad news is it's only as specific as Q2 2012. Now I've been doing this job since 2000, and not once have I ever looked up what release date quarters mean. This chart did not help. So instead of explaining it…

Exclusive Hands On With Carrier Command

There are some remakes which are baffling, and others which are ultimately pointless – when they they share little more than a name with the original game, for example - but there are others still which were crying out to happen, and make perfect sense when they arrive. Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is one of these. The original was an extraordinary piece of game design,…

Bohemia On Carrier Command, Arma III

Last week I had a chance to talk to the Bohemia Interactive bossman, Marek Spanel. As one of the brains behind the original Operation Flashpoint, and then the three Arma games that followed, he is one PC gaming's most ambitious developers. He's now embarking on a huge project of developing three games across three studios at the same time: Arma 3, Take On Helicopters, and…

Blimey: Carrier Command, The E3 Trailer

Carrier Command is being remade by Bohemia Interactive. I know! I've even been playing it, and I'll be putting up a hands-on preview, as well as interview with BIS boss Marek Spanel, on Monday. In the meantime you can take a look at the trailer they've released for the E3 reveal of the game. It's an all-new engine, not the Arma 2 engine, as we'd…

First Images: Carrier Command

So Bohemia Interactive's other announced project - in conjunction with Black Element - is Carrier Command. The long overdue remake of the aged sci-fi classic uses some of the same tech as Arma 2, and you can see some of the influences in these first in-game screens. No action to speak of, just environments and a few glimpses of your future-vehicles, but it's definitely got…

Carrier Command Teaser

Another one I caught off on forums, and it appears that everyone's late to it. While we mentioned the game's announcement, we completely failed to notice that the website had launched back in August and there's been a teaser on Youtube since around then too. Anyway - Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is due in 2010, comes from Bohemia Interactive and Black Element Software and is…

Carrier Command: Gaea Mission

Vehicular-mothership game Carrier Command was tungsten-plated awesome. So it's splendid that a new Carrier Command game is in the proverbial pipeline. It's being overseen by none other than Bohemia "ArmA" Interactive in conjunction developers Black Element Software [They made Shade: Wrath of Angels? Hmm]. It's to be based on the original 1988 Carrier Command and is set in the Gaea Universe, in which human awfulness…

Making Of: Hostile Waters

[Another brilliant game which should have been massive - I recall describing it as the first great game of the new millennium, which will annoy anyone who's anal over that Popular Millennium thing. In it I interview Julian Widdows, who I - when writing this - realise I haven't seen for years. Where are you, Julian Widdows? Also, reading it reminds me of one great…
