Volition's Next Game is Agents of Mayhem

Posted: 09:14AM

Today the next game from Volition, the developers behind the Saints Row Franchise, has been announced by publisher Deep Silver. Agents of Mayhem is set in a comic hero universe, where the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations (L.E.G.I.O.N.) is fought by the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds (M.A.Y.H.E.M.). It will be an open-world experience when it launches in 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game will be featured at the Deep Silver E3 booth next week.

The Cinematic Announcement trailer is embedded below (from IGN; Deep Silver will have it up on its YouTube channel later this week) and you may notice some Saints Row references. This is completely intentional as the new IP is set in the Saints Row Universe, so story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration are shared between them. One example would be the reference to Ultor, a company found in the Saints Row franchise, but also in the Red Faction franchise. Volition was the developer behind both franchises, but when THQ's assets were sold off, the Red Faction IP went to a different publisher.
