Volition's Agents of Mayhem will be here in a few short months, and there's a new trailer to make the wait a little more agonizing. This new video shows off several of the main characters and their unique abilities, and also drops a few hints about the story.
Personally, I can't wait. I'm a huge fan of the Saints Row series--I refer to it as "GTA, except fun," so I'm eager to get my hands on Volition's spiritual successor. So far Agents of Mayhem doesn't look as insane as Saints Row 4, but it also looks smoother and more refined, and it still has that trademark Saints ludicrous sense of humor.
FASTER, HARDER, STRONGER
Seoul is a big place. When the Agents aren’t using their teleportation abilities, or climbing up the side of the massive buildings, or using the many construction sites that are repairing the damage done on Devil’s Night to get around the city, the best way to maneuver the streets is by taking one of their fleet of luxury vehicles created by the automotive genius of the ARK, Quartermile.
Quartermile takes his love of luxury cars seriously and treats them with the love and respect they deserve. Like a kid in a candy store in the MAYHEM Motor Pool; Quartermile gives gleeful demonstrations of his high security, combat ready vehicles followed by a written test before they any Agents are issued with one. He takes it as an insult if Agents are careless with his creations, which they usually are. Just for fun, each car has an AI for Agents to chat with as they drive. Afterall, who doesn’t love a talking car?
