Volition and Deep Silver will be releasing a new and adventurous video game. Agents of Mayhem is scheduled for launching on August 15th, and it will come in all versions, namely PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Deep Silver, the publishers, have already posted the official trailer for the game.
The action of the game builds up on previous stoylines
If you are familiar with the game Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, then you will feel at home playing Agents of Mayhem. The description of the new game indicates that the events will follow those which took place in Saints Row.
“After the horrors of Devil’s Night, the world was left in ruins from the devastation that the shadowy supervillain organization LEGION had left in its wake.”
The previous game had an unhappy ending, as supervillains nearly destroyed everything. Persephone Brimstone decided not to give up. Thus, in the new game she founded organization MAYHEM. Therefore, the title is actually an abbreviation for the Multinational AgencY Hunting Evil Mastermind.
This organization comes into being with the help of Ultor Corporation. Veteran gamers should recognize this one, too, as it was also present in previous Saints Row games and Red Faction. The purpose of MAYHEM is to defeat LEGION (abbreviation for League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
Agents of Mayhem brings changes, too. The storyline might be a continuation of the previous games, but the setting changes. The action takes place in Seoul, South Korea. Also, it brings a variety of twelve characters from which you can choose. However, while you are engaged in missions, you can only play three of these characters.
Bad vs. Evil
The trailer prepared fans for what they are expecting and revealed several elements from Agents of Mayhem. It presents several of the characters you can play with, but also some of the gear that you can use. Every character comes with a special repository, as well as their own skills which can bring different advantages in the gameplay.
Also, the trailer indicates that this game continues the action of Saints Row. First of all, it introduces Persephone Brimstone. Then, many other elements from the previous titles are present. But do not think that the action of this new game will be static. There are plenty of challenges, missions, and new items to collect.
You can already preorder the game on Amazon. For only $59.99, you can purchase Agents of Mayhem for Xbox One or PS4.
