Agents of Mayhem arrives on August 15

Developer Volition and publisher Deep Silver have announced that Agents of Mayhem, Volition’s upcoming open-world hero shooter, will officially launch on August 15.

Agents of Mayhem will carry on the spirit of Volition’s iconic Saints Row franchise by dropping players into a zany, over-the-top world filled with bombastic action and loveably violent characters. However, unlike Saints Row, Agents of Mayhem won’t involve the player creating their own playable protagonist but will instead allow them to take command of a team of twelve interchangeable Agents, each with their own personalities, weapons, and skills. For each of the game’s open-world missions, the player will assemble a squad of three different Agents and will be able to swap between them as the situation demands.

While some may be skeptical about Volition’s departure from the Saints Row franchise, both Volition and Deep Silver are confident that Agents of Mayhem will resonate with Saints Row fans as we as anyone who enjoys a good open-world game. Agents of Mayhem will launch on August 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
