Carrier Command: Gaea Mission will be available in Australia on Windows PC and Xbox 360 on September 27.

The game, a re-imagining of 80s classic Carrier Command, contains a unique combination of first- and third-person action alongside strategy elements such as instructing units, managing resources and customising equipment.

In command of an armed vehicle carrier, players will traverse the seas to engage in free-roaming combat and establish a strategic network of island bases for mining, manufacturing and defense, according to Bohemia Interactive.

Bohemia Interactive founder and CEO Marek Španěl recently spoke of his love for the original.

"I and my brother Ondrej were addicted to playing Carrier Command on our Atari ST. In fact, it was what inspired us to develop games ourselves.”
