Agents of Mayhem is the new open world game from Volition, the studio that brought you the Saints Row franchise. Play as a cast of unique and diverse Super Agents from all over the world, and lead them in MAYHEM’s epic fight to save the city of Seoul from the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization LEGION!
Following LEGION’s simultaneous attack that spanned the globe, Persephone Brimstone founded MAYHEM: The Multinational AgencY for Hunting Evil Masterminds. Composed of highly skilled Agents from all over the world and all walks of life, and funded by the deep pockets of Ultor, MAYHEM operates with total impunity to combat the global threat of LEGION.
LEGION: The League of Evil Gentlemen Intent On Obliterating Nations. An organization of supervillains that has come out of the shadows with a coordinated, devastating attack on the world’s nations. With the world already under its dominion, LEGION Minister “Doctor Babylon” and his lieutenants are preparing for the next phase of their evil scheme in Seoul, The City of Tomorrow.
While Agents of Mayhem is part of a larger Saints Row Universe, this is a brand new IP with a focus on a new cast of characters, new gameplay, and a new open world. We do have a few surprises in store for Saints Row fans that we’ll be revealing at a later date!
Agents of Mayhem is a third-person shooter in which you can freely switch between three selected Super Agents in your squad. Each Agent has their own unique play-style, special abilities, and traversal options. From close range bruisers to long range specialists and everything in-between, it is up to you to customize your squad with the Agents you want! Gadgets also allow you to further customize the gameplay of each Agent, which can affect your squad’s dynamics as a direct result.
Agents of Mayhem takes place in the near-future city of Seoul, which is currently rebuilding and recovering from LEGION’s world-wide attack, while still being occupied under the iron grip of LEGION. The open world of Seoul is both dense and vertical, with the action taking place on the ground, in the sky on many of the under-construction buildings, and even underground in secret LEGION lairs and complexes.
Agents of Mayhem is running on a powerful brand-new engine created internally by Volition, with all the technical bells and whistles that players have come to expect from this generation.
Agents of Mayhem is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
Agents of Mayhem releases in 2017. More details on the specific release date will follow!
