Carrier Command: Gaea Mission Beta This Week

The Arma 2 Website announces that on Friday they will launch a "play and contribute' beta for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission, their upcoming science fiction game. They also announce the game's release is delayed to September of this year (it has already missed its Q1 2012 release window), saying the delay is "related to the beta." Play and contribute means testers will actually "assist in the game's development process," a throwback to the days when betas were to polish games for release rather than as preorder incentives, but that doesn't mean this beta isn't an incentive as well, as they are initially offering access to those who pre-purchase the game. Word is:

The beta, which will launch on April 6, offers a compressed version of the Strategic Campaign. Instead of following the Gaea Mission storyline, this mode spotlights the gameplay and is considered to be a great representative of the enormous amount of player freedom - as opposed to the more linear experiences seen in many other games.

I loved this game on the Atari ST; actually created a map back then with all locations and posted it to CompuServe.

hmm seems like it would have been a good mix to have some first person shooter elements mixed into the multiplayer, only the single player missions have FPS action.

multiplayer is just vehicular RTS hybrid first person/third person action combat.

This was one of the best games ever made in the Amiga. Hope it can live up to its reputation now.

Never played the original but this got my attention when I first saw news about it here on Blues.

I'm jazzed for a good RTS game with interesting units and gameplay.

I loved this way way way way back on the Amiga. And finally beat it. Fingers crossed it doesn't suck!
