Deep Silver reveals Agents of Mayhem

Deep Silver reveals Agents of Mayhem

Volition has been working for years on Saints Row but today Deep Silver and its studio have announced a new IP: Agents of Mayhem. The last word stands for Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds, an outfit for super agents recruited to fight against the villain organization L.E.G.I.O.N. The third-person open world action game will be released in 2017 for PC and consoles. More details inside along with the first screenshots, the trailer in good quality should be available later this week.

Deep Silver Announce Agents of Mayhem® from Volition,
the Creators of Saints Row

Discover an amazing new comic hero universe bursting with unforgettable characters
as the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. do battle against the sinister forces of L.E.G.I.O.N. in a brand-new open-world extravaganza

Larkspur, Calif. – June 6, 2016 - Volition are back with a brand new game in their latest open-world epic - Agents of Mayhem® coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017.

The developers of the highly acclaimed and hugely successful Saints Row series have taken it to the next level with the creation of a new comic hero universe.

Meet the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) – 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).

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 pure Volition. The title exists as a part of the Saints Row universe, sharing certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling franchise. Building on the 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…

From the description and images, this is giving me such a Crackdown vibe. But since its from the Saints Row team, it's not surprising since Saints Row 4 was basically a Crackdown clone - albeit a very good one. Looking forward to the trailer.

Its nice to see what this team will be capable of on next gen hardware. Again you have to wonder why its took almost 3 years after these consoles are out for them to finally reveal what they are working on. What happened this gen?

FromSoftware seem to have nailed it. They released a new Armored Core at the end of 2013, Dark Souls 2 early 2014, Bloodborne and a remaster of Dark Souls II in 2015 and then Dark Souls III in 2016. And they are all fairly highly praised games too.

We're getting "this is like Crackdown!" from a cinematic trailer with zero gameplay?

Yeah okay.
