There hasn’t been a lot of noise coming from the Volition Studios recently. But don’t take their silence to mean they’ve been idle, sitting on the laurels of their success with the last Saints Row game. Far from it in fact. Volition have now announced their next project, a quirky open world game that goes by the name Agents of Mayhem.
Now you may think that you know what to expect from the developer that brought us the Saints Row series and in a way you’d be right. But there are a lot of differences as well.
There is the open world and urban landscape that we would expect, also a slight comedic touch which doesn’t stray far from paths trodden before. But then things take something of a departure. You play as a squad of three and you must use all three of their abilities combined to bring down the forces of L.E.G.I.O.N. Don’t worry though, your little band of trouble makers have a name made of an acronym as well, you are the agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M.Oh, and it’s going to be exclusively single player as well, which could make a nice change from the current model of everything needing to be an online multiplayer.
We don’t have much more to go on but we can expect a lot more to trickle out over the coming months and there should be a big reveal for it at this years E3 as well.
