Deep Silver Volition has officially announced Agents of Mayhem, a brand new third-person open-world action IP heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
Set in a new "comic hero universe", Agents of Mayhem puts players in control of an agent recruited to "thwart the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization L.E.G.I.O.N", and is said to feature the developer's trademark "over-the-top open-world gameplay".
And while it isn't a new Saints Row game, it is said to be a part of the Saints Row universe, sharing "certain story elements, symbolism, and design inspiration with the multi-million selling franchise". The title is the "culmination of over a decade of open world experience and creativity," Deep Silver says.
IGN reports that the game will be an "exclusively single-player" title, suggesting there won't be any local or online multiplayer functionality.
Details on Amazon, meanwhile, make it sound like an open-world single-player hero shooter set in Seoul, South Korea:
The announcement follows a leak earlier today revealing that Volition's game would be revealed in time for this year's E3. The name Agents of Mayhem has long been rumoured, too, after a trademark for the game was registered by Deep Silver Volition's owner Koch Media earlier this year.
For the first look check out the announcement trailer below and expect plenty more details to be revealed at E3.
