Agents of Mayhem is absolutely crazy, and that’s one of Volition’s strong suits. Taking place in the same universe as their previous Saint’s Row outings, Agents looks like it’s going to bring the same run and gun over-the-top action we’ve come to know and love. Today we’ve got a look at one of the trios in a trailer called “Bombshells” introducing Joule, Rama and Red Card, but what’s Agents of Mayhem all about? Let’s look at the official listing for that:
Agents of Mayhem is Deep Silver Volition’s new IP! This brand new game is their take on the recent comic book and superhero phenomenon, and the revival of the Saturday morning cartoon. The developers of the highly acclaimed and hugely successful Saints Row series have taken it to the next level once again, and created their own comic hero universe. Recruited from around the world, a group of unique and diverse Super Agents are set loose on the city of Seoul to save it from the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization LEGION (League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
The Agents of MAYHEM (Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) fuse together technology, weaponry and gadgets to create an all-out arsenal of futuristic warfare–and have absolutely no qualms about putting it all to use against their enemies.
Featuring an original storyline, trademark over-the-top open-world gameplay, and the look-and-feel of a distinctive superhero cosmos, Agents of Mayhem is a true Volition game. This new IP is a part of the Saints Row universe, sharing certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling franchise. Building on the unique skill of the AAA studio to continuously surprise, endear, and engage players, Agents of Mayhem represents the culmination of over a decade of open world experience and creativity.
