As we suspected, Agents of Mayhem is the new IP in development at Volition Studios and IGN has the first details on the game.
Agents of Mayhem is a new open world adventure developed behind the minds of the Saints Row franchise. The game is a single player only experience and will feature three unique heroes for players to control. The game will set you loose in a futuristic version of Seoul, South Korea and will feature a bunch of “cool guns, gadgets, and abilities to toy around with.”
From the press release:
Featuring an original storyline, trademark over-the-top open-world gameplay, and the look-and-feel of a distinctive superhero cosmos, Agents of Mayhem is pure Volition. The title exists as a part of the Saints Row universe, sharing certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling franchise. Building on the skill of the AAA studio to continuously surprise, endear, and engage players, Agents of Mayhem represents the culmination of over a decade of open world experience and creativity.
In a simultaneous global assault, LEGION has taken control over the nations of the world and the only force left to stop them is MAYHEM. Led by the mysterious and no-nonsense Persephone Brimstone, MAYHEM’s elite Super Agents are called to the city of Seoul, South Korea. Led by LEGION Minister Doctor Babylon and his diabolical lieutenants, a nefarious plot is set in motion to build a world-altering device that will grant unrivaled power to the supervillain organization. In order to stop LEGION and take back the world, the Agents of Mayhem will traverse a sprawling urban battlefield from the ground to the rooftops and team up as a super-agent collective to stop LEGION at any cost.
Aside from that not much else has been revealed by IGN or Deep Silver just yet. You can check out the reveal trailer for the game just below along with the first screenshots for the game.
We should be getting to see more of the game at E3 2016, so stay tuned to OnlySP for further updates on Agents of Mayhem as we have them.
