Agents of Mayhem Release Month Revealed
Volition, the creators of the Saints Row franchise, has a new game on the way: Agents of Mayhem. It looks like the same style of game, with the over-the-top action, humour, and style. According to the trailer that was leaked earlier today, it won’t be too long before fans of the franchise can get their hands on the game either!
Yesterday, the Agents of Mayhem Twitter account teased an upcoming trailer with a premiere date of April 3, which is tomorrow, but it appears it was leaked a day early by Twitter user Wario64. This user is known for posting images and trailers before their official release. This trailer, which has since been removed, showed the month of release, stating Agents of Mayhem was coming this August! We’ll just have to wait and see if this is confirmed tomorrow when the Agents of Mayhem Twitter account releases the official trailer.
It takes place after one of the endings of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and revolves around the organization MAYHEM, which is funded by the Ultor Corporation. Ultor was one of the main antagonists of the Saints Row series before merging with the Third Street Saints to become huge celebrities in Saints Row: The Third. The logo for MAYHEM is the Saints purple fleur-de-lis, and yes you take control of these Agents of MAYHEM, hence the name of the game!
For anyone who hasn’t heard of the game, check out the game summary from the official website below:
“Following LEGION’s simultaneous attack that spanned the globe, Persephone Brimstone founded MAYHEM: The Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds.With Agents from all over the world and from all walks of life, and courtesy of the deep pockets of Ultor, MAYHEM operates with total impunity.Agents strike in teams of three–but not all Agents get along. Each has their own reason for fighting–and their own agenda–but they are united in their ultimate goal: to stop LEGION at any cost.”
Agents of Mayhem is set to release for PC in August of this year, but a more specific release date within that month has not been revealed. Keep it locked for any updates as they become available.
