Agents of Mayhem announced from developer of Saints Row

Hm

By way of IGN, we now know of the existence of Agents of Mayhem, a new game from the developers of Saints Row, Volition.

It’ll launch on the usual suspects of PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2017, and will feature a “comic hero universe” setup (with the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. versus the evil L.E.G.I.O.N., as well as open world gameplay. Although it’s touted as a “brand new IP,” it is set in the Saints universe, much like Kevin Smith’s films are in the View Askewniverse (have your cake and eat it too!).

As for the game itself, I loved the over-the-top feel of Saints Row IV like everyone else, but there’s such a thing as overdoing it. We’ll see.
