What’s that? You don’t know what Agents of Mayhem is? Egad! No, but seriously, I had no idea that Volition was working on a new game, much less another open world action thing set in the same universe as Saints Row. The game sees you running “a no-holds barred operation against a shadowy super-villain organization known only as LEGION and their mysterious leader, the Morningstar,” and its latest trailer is totally bonkers.
Agents of Mayhem is coming to PC, PS4, and XBO on 18 August, will cost you R589 (on PC), and is described on Steam thusly:
“Following the global attacks on Devil’s Night, cities of the world are held by the LEGION’s Ministries, bands of powerful villains named for the Seven Deadly Sins. Seoul is the personal domain of LEGION’s mad scientists, the Ministry of Pride – Doctor Babylon and his rogue’s gallery of supporting villains. You play as a variety of Super Agents – each with their own distinct look, personality, weapons, and skills. Explore the city of Seoul to rout out LEGION operatives and their vile plans to take over the world. MAYHEM’s Agents have a license to do what the hell they want, so long as they do whatever it takes to grow the agency and ultimately defeat LEGION.”
