Long acronyms aren't the only things promised in the upcoming Agents of Mayhem
(Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds). Today the PlayStation Blog sat down with Anoop Shekar from Deep Silver Volition, who gave a surprising amount of details, considering the game isn't scheduled for launch until 2017.
As we learned when Agents
was first announced
, the game will take place in a big city, much like the Saints Row
games do. The city is being crushed under the control of the L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations) and it's your agents' job to take it back. It'll include many of those Volition touches we're used to, like crazy humor and the third-person view.
I won't spoil it all, but Shekar (who has been with Volition for 20 years) talks about the game's characters and swapping between them to better address each situation, the comic book graphical style, the perks system and some big enemies we'll get to fight.
Agents of Mayhem
is due out in 2017.
