It says much of DayZ’s all-consuming popularity - not to mention the autonomy Bohemia Interactive allow their most famous employee - that while Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall hosted Eurogamer Expo’s most packed developer session over the weekend, he didn’t see fit to mention his company’s imminent new game. But there is indeed a new game from Bohemia Interactive - a remake/sequel to real-time strategy classic Carrier Command, named Gaea Mission - and you can play its demo right now.
It comes with “two demo-exclusive assaults on the Thermopylae and Granite islands”, first granting control of an amphibious vehicle, the Walrus, before jumping forwards to a later sequence in the Granite islands, where players can get a taste of Gaea Mission’s open world - driving Walruses, flying Mantas, and ordering units about using the tactical map.
Bohemia reckon it’ll last you around 45 minutes - start here. A Steam release is coming soon - will you be giving Gaea Mission a go?
