A little while ago, Deep Silver filed a trademark for a new title called “Agents of Mayhem” which at the time we presumed was the subtitle for an unannounced Saints Row game, however, Deep Silver and Volition have today announced said game, and it’s a completely new IP.
Agents of Mayhem is a brand new IP from Volition that’s set to arrive on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2017. The game will feature a “new comic hero universe,” according to the press release, and has players taking the role of one of the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds), a crew of “unique and diverse” agents recruited from around the globe to take down the members of an evil organisation known as L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
The game will feature its own original storyline, “over-the-top” open-world gameplay, and will feature a distinctive superhero cosmos. Though don’t go thinking that this isn’t in any way tied to Saints Row, because it’s a part of the same universe, sharing certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration from the Saints Row games.
Can you assume the role of an Agent of Mayhem and save the world from nefarious characters such as Doctor Babylon?
