Saints Row developers Volition have announced their next game will be Agents of Mayhem, a brand new open-world action game set in a comic book hero style universe. Agents of Mayhem will exist as part of the Saints Row universe, and is set to capitalise on the studios trademark storytelling style and chaos infused gameplay.

The game will feature an original storyline centred around the titular Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (which stands for the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) – a group of diverse Super Agents recruited from around the world to fight the evil supervillain organisation L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).

In the game itself, LEGION has taken control over the nations of the world, and the only force left to stop them is MAYHEM. The Agents, led by the mysterious Persephone Brimstone, will need to put a stop to LEGION’s nefarious plots in a game that will see players traversing a sprawling urban battlefield.

Agents of Mayhem is scheduled to launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2017. Expect to see some more of the game at E3 next week.
