Volition, the creators behind Saints Row, are up to something new! An American video game developer just announced a new open-world action game called Agents of Mayhem. The game will feature superheroes and should arrive 2017 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The FAQ page on the official Agents of Mayhem site describes the game as a third-person shooter in which players have the option to switch between three playable characters called Super Agents. Each Super Agent has its own special abilities that will help players fight against enemies.
Even though Agents of Mayhem is a brand new game and it isn’t associated with Saints Row, some elements of the famous title will be visible in the new game. The developer probably decided to do so seeing as the Saints Row’s recipe is already successful and would help players better acclimate to the new game. Agents of Mayhem will also use Volition’s in-house graphics engine.
“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.” said Deep Silver, the game’s publisher in its official announcement post.
IGN posted the official Agents of Mayhem Official cinematic trailer, which you can check out below:
The game will arrive sometime in 2017 but there’s still no exact release date. Perhaps we’ll have more information about the game after this year’s E3 conference in Los Angeles, where we expect Deep Silver to unveil more details about Agents of Mayhem.
There’s already a rumor that Deep Silver plans to make a big announcement at the event, but it wasn’t confirmed if that announcement is going to be about Agents of Mayhem or maybe some other title (Saints Row 5?).
