Imagine Battlefield Was a LOT Bigger. With Space Weapons. That's Carrier Command.

I've talked about Carrier Command here before, somewhat enthusiastically, but for those who just can't see what I'm getting at, this trailer shows better than any other just what the game's about.

It's all about scale. You can be a man on the ground or you can drive a giant aircraft carrier bristling with guns. You can also drive and fly everything in between. What the game lacks in variety of units it makes up for in size and flexibility, and the singleplayer stuff shown here - not normally Bohemia's strongpoint - doesn't look too bad either. Relatively.

It's amazing to think that almost nothing you see here is that new, either; this is a remake of a game from 1988. There were some forward-thinking developers back then, I tell 'ya.

Carrier Command is out in Europe on September 28 and in North America on October 2. It's coming on Xbox 360 and PC (the clip above is from the 360 version).

It's a shame it doesn't actually take place in space and lets you assault the ships Star Wars Battlefront 2 style. Maybe step one would be lower the shields, then extract some intel or a VIP then destroy the ship from within or from without.

Alas, marketing data CLARLY shows that people don't want to play games where you pilot space fighters Never you mind the fact that there are barely any on the market and that none of them get bajillion dollar marketing campaigns, that's not important. Shut up and buy a shooter already. You know you want one, and it's all you're getting so stop struggling and just enjoy it already!Are you mentally ill? Everyone else likes shooters, so you should too! Look, we're not going to make a different kind of game just for you! Oh, you think you represent a sizable number of fans for a particular genre? Yeah, you don't. You're just being a hipster and refusing to like games that no one else has problems with but you.
