Volition today announced their return with a brand new IP – Agents of Mayhem, an open-world epic coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017. The developers of the hugely successful Saints Row series have taken it to the next level with the creation of a new comic hero universe. You can check out a cinematic announcement trailer for Agent’s of Mayhem right now over at IGN.
The Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M AKA Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds are a motley outfit of unique and diverse Super Agents recruited from around the world to thwart the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
Agents of Mayhem will be a true Volition game and will take place inside the wonderful universe of Saints Row. Featuring an original storyline, trademark over-the-top open-world gameplay, and the look-and-feel of a distinctive superhero cosmos. Agents of Mayhem will share certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling popular series. 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.
In a simultaneous global assault, LEGION has taken control over the nations of the world and the only force left to stop them is MAYHEM. Led by the mysterious and no-nonsense Persephone Brimstone, MAYHEM’s elite Super Agents are called to the city of Seoul, South Korea. Led by LEGION Minister Doctor Babylon and his diabolical lieutenants, a nefarious plot is set in motion to build a world-altering device that will grant unrivaled power to the supervillain organization. In order to stop LEGION and take back the world, the Agents of Mayhem will traverse a sprawling urban battlefield from the ground to the rooftops and team up as a super-agent collective to stop LEGION at any cost. Success is far from guaranteed and collateral damage will be substantial, but it’s all in a day’s work for the Agents…
Agent’s of Mayhem is due to launch in 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
