Well that sure is over-the-top

The Saints Row series has slowly but surely become more and more ridiculous over the years, and the upcoming Agents of Mayhem appears to be the final evolution of such a concept. In the most basic terms Agents of Mayhem is a third-person open-world action-adventure where a whole bunch of seemingly insane 'good guys' are fighting against a completely over-the-top villainous organization known as LEGION.

Words alone just aren't enough to convey the sheer ridiculousness of Agents of Mayhem, so instead allow me to share with you one of the most recent trailers. Its a bit light on pure gameplay, but it should give you a pretty damn good idea of just what Agents of Mayhem truly is. Have a look:

What might come as a surprise is that Agents of Mayhem is an entirely singleplayer game, with no MOBA-like game modes or anything like that. Its just you, the city of Seoul infested with supervillains, and a whole bunch of guns and explosives. A simple formula, but if executed well it sure could be a ton of fun.

Agents of Mayhem will be coming to PC and consoles this August 15th for the NA region, and August 18th for the EU region. While I'm not 100% sure, it does appear that those release dates only apply to the physical version of the game since the EU Steam still has August 15th as the launch date. Whatever the case may be, you can learn more by heading over to the official website or Steam itself.
