Called Agents of Mayhem, Volition showcased a debut cinematic trailer showcasing a slick-looking, stylized world where a group of mercenaries take on some sort of evil, clandestine group. The trailer, an IGN exclusive, was four minutes of unbridled action that introduced several of the main characters to the player, including the rag-tag group of mercenaries named Fortune, Hardtack, and Hollywood.

Deep Silver also released  a press release detailing the basic plot and features of the game. The team is called M.A.Y.H.E.M (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) and their job is to hunt and defeat the evil schemes of the organization known as L.E.G.I.O.N (League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations). When LEGION begins a global assault to take over the world, only the agents of MAYHEM, lead by the mysterious Persephone Brimstone, can put a stop to their plans of world domination.

The entire game, according to Deep Silver, is a new comic-hero universe featuring Volition-trademarked open-world gameplay, over the top characters, and a distinct superhero-feel in terms of aesthetics. Volition has also stated that Agents of Mayhem is part of their Saints Row universe, containing symbols and story elements from the Saints Row series which serve as inspiration for the new game. We see this in action with the trailer and official screenshots, as the MAYHEM organization uses a stylized purple fleur-de-lis as it's logo.

Other information will be revealed over the next month on IGN, including a closer look at the connection between the Saints Row franchise and Agents of Mayhem, and official gameplay footage. Agents of Mayhem will also be at E3 in some capacity, although, Deep Silver is stating that the game is planned for a 2017 release on the Ps4, Xbox One, and PC.
