After a successful run of more than three months, Bohemia Interactive has announced the discontinuation of the Carrier Command: Gaea Mission Play & Contribute Beta program. The P&C beta – brought to life to aid the development process – will be replaced by a pre-order deal on Monday 30th July. This means people still have one and a half weeks left to seize the heavily discounted € 20 Play & Contribute offer (which includes beta-access anda digital copy of the final game) on Bohemia Interactive’s Store.bistudio.com.
Now that the game is nearing completion, feedback will no longer be necessary. Nevertheless, those who signed up for the P&C program will still able to play the beta.
Lead Designer, Jaroslav Kašný, said:
“As a result of the Play & Contribute Beta, we’ve been able to improve almost every aspect of the game. It was inspiring and motivating to see the wonderful response from our already passionate community. On behalf of myself and my colleagues, I’d like to thank you all for the great support!”
The new Store.bistudio.com pre-order deal, starting on Monday 30th July, offers a hefty 25%pre-order discount on Carrier Command: Gaea Mission for PC. It also gives people the opportunity to play the latest P&C beta build and try out the Strategy Game mode. The discount will decrease by the end of August.

About the beta-content:
The beta includes a considerable slice of the ‘Strategy Game’ mode. At the start of this mode, players will have to set a few starting parameters, like the number of islands (up to 9 in the beta and 30+ in the full game), the ratio of captured islands, and enemy strength. Then, by conquering and establishing a network of bases for manufacturing, mining and defense, the campaign is pushed forward, with the ultimate goal being to destroy the opposing enemy carrier. The main, story-driven, Gaea Mission campaign – which also features first-person shooter missions, cinematic cutscenes and tutorials – will be present in the full game.
