RISING STAR GAMES TO RELEASE
CARRIER COMMAND: GAEA MISSION IN NORTH AMERICA
Reinvention of the Classic Strategy Game Comes to Xbox 360 and Windows PC
TORRANCE, Calif. – June 28, 2012 – Rising Star Games, Inc. today announced a partnership with independent game developer Bohemia Interactive to bring action-packed, strategy title Carrier Command: Gaea Mission to North American shores this fall. Coming to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is another example of Rising Star’s commitment to bring top-quality games to North America.
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission brings a modern update to the classic 1980’s Carrier Command. A strategy-based game, Carrier Command: Gaea Mission offers a unique combination of first- and third-person action. The game features a deep story set in a massive environment with more than 30 unique islands hosting six distinct climate zones. Alongside their ragtag crew, players will mount a powerful campaign to control a network of island bases set within the universe. Commanders must manage multiple vehicles in real-time while acquiring and manufacturing upgrades, weapons and enhancements to guarantee victory on the battlefield.
“Joining forces with Bohemia Interactive is another step in the right direction for our company,” said Phil Robinson, VP of Rising Star Games, Inc. “We are committed to enhancing our U.S. portfolio with top-quality titles and Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is a perfect example of that promise.”
“The original Carrier Command was an inspiration for me joining the video game industry, and it’s an honor to be creating the re-imagined version of the title 25 years later,” said Marek Spanel, CEO and founder of Bohemia Interactive. “We have a passionate team that is dedicated to making a game that continues the Carrier Command legacy and we are thrilled to be working with Rising Star Games to bring this title to the US.”
