David Bradley (Lord Walder Frey from Game of Thrones) narrates a poem while pirates get what’s coming to them.

The Mandate is an sci fi RPG where disgraced captains are enlisted to help restore order and “take care” of any threats against the empire. Or you can a rebel working to undermine that same empire with your shenanigans. The Mandate is trying to achieve an epic sci fi story with a surprisingly high level of player control and customization.

Last week, Perihelion Interactive gave us a breakdown of the game when they hit their Kickstarter goal.

The trailer shows off Heavy Assault Units boarding a pirate vessel with the help of their Tactical Hackers. Game of Thrones’ fans will also enjoy that the evil Walder Frey, David Bradley, is narrating the video with a reading of the poem ‘The Destroyers.’

The Mandate should be out sometime in 2015 with beta releases next year.
