Deep Silver has revealed what the Saints Row developers, Volition, have been working on and it happens to be a brand new open-world action game that does exist as part of the Saints Row universe, but does not focus on the group in any form. Instead this game is called Agents of Mayhem and follows agents from the organization called M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds). This motley outfit of unique and diverse Super Agents recruited from around the world to thwart the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
Agents of Mayhem features an original storyline where in a simultaneous global assault, L.E.G.I.O.N. 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 L.E.G.I.O.N. 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. Currently Agents of Mayhem is set to be released sometime in 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
