LOS ANGELES - October 4, 2012 - Just two days after the worldwide launch of Carrier Command: Gaea Mission, publisher Rising Star Games and developer Bohemia Interactive have commissioned a new Windows PC demo for the action/strategy game. The demo introduces players to Carrier Command: Gaea Mission's unique gameplay as they lead two demo-exclusive assaults on the Thermopylae and Granite islands.

Narrated by one of the developers, the demo kicks off with an action-packed sequence in which players control one of the amphibious Walruses. Once the first objective is completed, the demo fast-forwards to another island, allowing players to switch between driving Walruses, flying Mantas and ordering units via the tactical map. Overall, the full demo takes about 45 minutes to complete.

Based on the 1988 groundbreaking classic, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission offers a refreshing blend of vehicular combat with tactical and strategic elements. In a massive open world -- consisting of 33 unique islands hosting six distinct climatic zones -- players are put in command of a futuristic military carrier holding multiple remotely controllable and customizable units. By traversing the seas and establishing a strategic network of island bases for mining, production and defense, players set out to conquer the archipelago on the planetoid Taurus.

The Windows PC demo for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is now available for download at A Steam release is expected at a later date.
