Developer Volition and publisher Deep Silver announced today that the Agents of Mayhem release date is set to August 15, 2017.
Along with the official announcement, Deep Silver also released a new trailer (see below) for the upcoming open world action-adventure video game they will publish on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Let’s take a closer look at the latest Agents of Mayhem trailer, and the story behind the video game Volition is working on.
Agents of Mayhem Setting and Characters
According to the game’s description the action in Agents of Mayhem takes place after the events from Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.
“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.”
If you played Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, then you might remember Persephone Brimstone, who is now the founder of M.A.Y.H.E.M. or the Multinational AgencY Hunting Evil Mastermind.
Now, M.A.Y.H.E.M. and its agents are fighting against L.E.G.I.O.N., or the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations, a terrorist organization who wishes to destroy the world’s nations.
Unlike the previous games developed by Volition, Agents of Mayhem sends players to Seoul: The City of Tomorrow, in South Korea.
The video-game features an open-world environment, with twelve playable characters or agents; however, players can only pick three of them during the game’s missions.
The Agents of Mayhem playable characters have also been revealed ahead of the game’s release.
The agents available in the video game are known as Fortune, Hardtack, Rama, Kingpin, Yeti, Scheherazade, Oni, Braddock, Daisy, Red Card, and Joule.
Agents of Mayhem Bad vs. Evil Trailer
In the latest Agents of Mayhem trailer below, you can see some of the game’s playable characters and even some weapons that might be available in the game.
Named Bad vs. Evil, the trailer also introduces the game’s antagonist, and Persephone Brimstone, your supervisor.
Each Mayhem agent features unique powers and skills, that will help you complete the game’s missions.
Judging by the trailer, Volition decided to keep the gameplay elements from its previous Saints Row titles; therefore, we can expect to explore a large open-world, filled with collectibles, side-missions and challenges.
Agents of Mayhem Release Date
As confirmed by both Volition and Deep Silver on April 3, 2017, Agents of Mayhem will be released on August 15, 2017 in North America, and August 18, 2017 in Europe.
Additionally, the Bad vs. Evil trailer reveals the Agents of Mayhem Day One Edition “Legal Action Pending” DLC which is available as a pre-order bonus, and unlocks 6 Day One Edition skins for your agents.
