Violation are the Developers of the highly popular Saint Row games and they are planning to take it the the next level with the new super hero universe which follows the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) – a team of unique and diverse Super Agents recruited from around the world to battle the evil supervillain organization L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M will feature an original storyline, trademark over-the-top open-world gameplay, and the look-and-feel of a distinctive superhero universe. This new IP is a part of the Saints Row universe, sharing certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling franchise. Building on the unique 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.
Here is the plot:
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.
Success is far from guaranteed and collateral damage will be substantial, but it’s all in a day’s work for the Agents…
Sounds like this could be a fun and violent little super hero game and I am looking forward to giving this a play next year.
