The Mandate, the six-player cooperative sandbox sci-fi RPG from Perihelion Interactive, has a new gameplay video available demonstrating the Battle Orchestrator. The holographic simulator can be paused and returned to at any time, allowing captains to plan space skirmishes and use strategic environmental factors such as asteroid cover or line-of-sight. The footage was crafted using Unity and the “speed of ships, their turning rate, the weapon firing rate, etc, are not representative of the final gameplay/pacing,” stated the developer. The Mandate is in development following a successful Kickstarter campaign in November 2013.
