Volition Studios has been silent since the release of its Saints Row game last year. Now they have broken that silence with the release of a new trailer for Agents of Mayhem on YouTube.
Deep Silver, the publisher, announced the game through IGN, who described the game as, “an exclusively single-player-open-world action game featuring characters with cool guns, gadgets, and abilities to toy around with.” The game follows MAYHEM (Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds), a rag-tag group of superheroes that are trying to thwart the plans of LEGION (League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
Players will get to lead a squad of three agents from a roster of twelve. Based on the trailer, it also appears that you can switch characters as you play the game. Each agent has his or her own gadget that can be upgraded and customized.
The game takes place in the same universe as Saints Row, and will be released in 2017. In the coming month, we can expect to see the first-ever gameplay footage, a look inside Volition and the making of Agents of Mayhem, and a few other things.
