Volition has just announced their new game, Agents of Mayhem, as part of IGN's First series.
Agents of Mayhem is described as an "open-world action game", and features a distinct Borderlands-esque visual style with Volition's signature abrasive hilarity. Agents of Mayhem is singleplayer-only, and players will use a squad of three M.A.Y.H.E.M agents who use their unique skill combos and gadgets to blast baddies to smithereens.
Volition didn't reveal a whole lot to IGN, but we did get a snazzy cinematic trailer (see above) and the promise of "more to come" at E3 2016. Sadly the trailer has absolutely no actual gameplay footage, so official details are light. So for now we know Volition's new game is indeed Agents of Mayhem, an open-world action game possibly set in a universe related to Saints Row.
Honestly, I don't know what to think about Agents of Mayhem just yet. I'm not too partial to the visual style, and I was hoping for something more...substantial from Volition, like another over-the-top Saints Row adventure.
