Agents of Mayhem is Saints Row developer Volition’s new spin on the open-world action genre. Unveiled last year just before E3, it surprised a lot of fans who expected the developer to jump right into Saints Row 5. Instead, the studio had created a new concept where players can swap between multiple characters with unique weapons and abilities on the fly during missions.
Whether you’re a skeptical fan or a hopeful one, you won’t need to wait too much longer to find out if Volition has delivered on its new, multi-character premise. Publisher Deep Silver revealed at an event last week that Agents of Mayhem will launch on Aug. 15. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PCs.
During the same event, Polygon was able to go hands-on with Agents of Mayhem for about an hour-and-a-half and speak with some of the developers behind it. For more on that, you can check out our full hands-on feature.
