Saints Row Dev Announces New Game Agents Of Mayhem

by Mike Guarino


Volition will not be taking a return trip to the Saints Row series for their next game, as they have just announced that it is a brand new IP called Agents of Mayhem. The game is currently targeting a 2017 release date for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and definitely has a lot of the hallmarks of what you would expect from a Volition game.

Volition debuted the game’s trailer as a part of IGN First, which unfortunately does not feature any gameplay but still gives you an idea of what to expect. They describe it as the following:

“Agents of Mayhem is in keeping with Volition’s modern design ingredients: an urban landscape, lots of open-world action, and a touch of the whimsical. As the trailer hints at, you play a squad of three agents, and use their unique skills in tandem to beat back the bad guys; which isn’t to say you’re necessarily controlling the “good” ones. Though they’re definitely a lot nicer than the mustache-twirling megalomaniacs of L.E.G.I.O.N., the agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. aren’t exactly heroes with a capital “H” either, which is part of their charm. Imagine letting the Suicide Squad loose in a futuristic version Seoul, Korea and you’ve got one foot in the ballpark.”

While there’s obviously a lot more information that has not been shared, they will be revealing the rest of it over the course of this month. Check out the debut trailer below.
