Face The Firing Squad in Agents of Mayhem trailer

That’s not music! That’s just noise!

Volition’s Saint’s Row-spinoff Agents of Mayhem is one month away. The latest in a series of trailers for the open-world action-adventure game introduces us to three new agents, collectively known as “The Firing Squad.”

Scheherazade is a stealthy, arabian-themed assassin, who uses light-speed travel to get the drop on her prey. Oni is a stylish former yakuza, whose fast sharpshooting skills are second to none, and former Saint’s Row punching-bag Pierce Washington returns as his wannabe-superstar alter-ego, Kingpin.

The Firing Squad join the Agents of Mayhem’s team roster, alongside The Bombshells, The Franchise and the Carnage A Trois, in their explosive war to bring down villainous organisation L.E.G.I.O.N.

Frankly, trailers in this style do nothing for me, either I’m old and out-of-touch, or marketing agencies are. I’m willing to accept that it’s likely the former.

Either way, be prepared to take your selected agents into battle when the game drops August 15 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
