Agents of Mayhem Game Details:
Agents of Mayhem is Volition’s crazy, insane, fast and egger Saints Row spin-off. This game looks like Saints Row 4 meets the Crackdown series and the pair created offspring. It is an open-world action adventure game full of life, color and violence. The main draw to the game is that it is a Saints Row spin off (hopefully removing this corny nonsense from the core series). There are character crossovers, references and more in Agents of Mayhem.
Fans have been spilt with the Saints Row series since it turned to corny and unbelievable humor in Saints Row: The Third. The series seems to have traveled downhill somewhere Agents of Mayhem sort of creates unity among the obvious fan divide. This game is the corny and unbelievable humor of Saints Row IV mixed with its own rhythm mimicking the Crackdown series.
The game takes place in the future. This title follows a “City of Tomorrow” tell when South Korea advances faster than the rest of the world. There are twelve characters to choose from. The premises is basically choose three agents to complete missions and explore the world. Each agent has their own unique playstyle and capabilities.
In addition, there are different types of missions. Aside from the main missions there are unlock missions and personal missions. Unlock missions are objectives that help you unlock new agents. Also, personal missions give fans a deeper look into the backstory of their agents. Hence the way someone progresses in the game.
But most of all the game looks fun, laid back and fast-paced; what could go wrong with that? As long as Volition keeps up with fans requests then this game seems like its golden; as a result fans will remain happy with the series.

Agents of Mayhem Story Overview:
The game takes place in Seoul, South Korea in a familair “recreated Earth”. You might remember this setting from the ending of the Saints Row IV expansion known as “Gat out of Hell”. Ultor Corporation and Persephone Brimstone run an Origination known as M.A.Y.H.E.M. (Multinational AgencY Hunting Evil Masterminds). The familiar logo and characters pretty much introduces us to the whole “Saints Row” spin-off thing. But this game is to be looked at as a stand-alone not just a Saints Row wanna-be.
Anyway, the agencies goal is to stop their opponent, L.E.G.I.O.N (The League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obiliterating Nations). L.E.G.I.O.N’s goal is to destroy the words nations. So yeah, the whole world is in the hands of a bad-ass but still sort of rag-tag bunch of agents. This plot is that off-the-wall, really trying hard humor Volition turned to after Saints Row 2, that’s for sure. Also, this game has its own flare while maintianing respect for the development teams previous projects.
Agents of Mayhem Per-Order & Deluxe Edition:
Many expect all AAA games to have a massive lineup to their special editions and what not. However, Agents of Mayhem sort of defies that rule. There is a day one edition of Agents of Mayhem and that is pretty much the extent of editions.
In addition, Day One Editions doesn’t mean nothing. First off the Day One Edition of this game comes with the “Legal Action Pending” DLC pack. The pack includes 6 different customizable elements for agents. The per-order bonuses don’t stop there. Furthermore GameStop poses as an exceptional pre-order place. If you get Agents of Mayhem at GameStop you get Johnny Gat as a playable character. Also, Amazon offers 3 exclusive skins apposed to getting to play as Johnny Gat. In addition, the digital edition on Steam offers both the Amazon and GameStop bonuses. Opposed to the Steam version, the digital edition on console offers agent Lazardus as a playable character instead of Johnny Gat.
In addition, to pre-order bonuses there are special discounts for Amazon Prime members and BestBuy’s “Gamers Club” but so far no matter where you get it, you’ll get the initial “Legal Action Pending” pack. There are no other special editions for this game as of its launch date.
