The final set of characters were showed off today with a new Agents of Mayhem trailer, which you can check out below. For those unacquainted with Agents of Mayhem, it is a open-world action game from the development studio Volition, the team behind the Saints Row series.

Carnage a Trois is the final squad to be showed off for the game, and according to a press release, the final one, too.

The team features ex-Army drill sergeant Braddock, who uses her cigar to mark targets and call in mortar strikes. Next up is Yeti, a Russian soldier who is the result of covert experimentation and who seems to have ice powers of some sort. According to the release, Saints Row fans can recognize him as Oleg. Lastly, Daisy, a mini-gun wielding roller derby competitor who is somehow able to blend the two skills together without falling over every five seconds like I surely would.

The press release also detailed how teleportation will work in Agents of Mayhem. You are able to instantly teleport characters in your squad in and out while playing, allowing for things like swapping in agents so that others can heal up to come back to the battle later. It seems that you can have up to three active agents at a time, and those can be any combination of agents available in the game.

Agents of Mayhem is slated for release on August 15th, 2017 and will be playable on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Quick Take

With every trailer for Agents of Mayhem, I find myself more and more disinterested in a game I would normally be on board for, and I can't quite put my finger on why that is. A squad-based action game set in an open world would normally be right up my alley, but it seems like Agents of Mayhem has turned into the most middle-of-the-road iteration of this idea that even I can't get excited about it. I'd love to know if any of you readers are looking forward to this game though, and let me know why so that maybe I can get hyped for it, too.
