Saints Row fans love him, Saints Row fans want to be him, and now they can. Johnny Gat returns as the 13th agent in Agents of MAYHEM!
Agents of MAYHEM is an single-player, open-world, third-person action game which will be released on August 18th. Fun, funny and full of high-action moments and laugh-out-loud scenarios, in Agents of MAYHEM, you run a no-holds barred operation against the shadowy super-villain organisation, LEGION, fighting to take back the world after the horrors of Devil’s Night.
The “Have God recreate the Earth and retcon the entire world of Saints Row” ending of Gat out of Hell means that the dead don’t stay dead. Johnny is back where he was born, Seoul and he’s a cop; the events of Devil’s Night left Johnny in a coma. On waking almost a year later Johnny discovers that all of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency have been wiped out and replaced with C.O.P robot units. Johnny hates robots but loves guns and his reputation for wanton destruction makes him the perfect fit for MAYHEM. Exclusively available to those pre-ordering Agents of Mayhem at retail, Johnny Gat will be the 13th Agent of Mayhem. Featuring his unlock mission, his personal mission, vehicle and character and weapon skins, and the unmistakable voice of Daniel Dae Kim, that’s a whole lot of Johnny.
For those that prefer to pre-order digitally, the 13th Agent will be Lazarus. A brand new and exclusive character, Lazarus is a merging of woman and machine; the top rung of the evolutionary ladder. As an agent of MAYHEM, she encounters an endless stream of competitors ready to challenge her for that distinction. While she’s evolved beyond her own humanity, she still has a great love and respect for humankind as a whole. MAYHEM allows her to watch over those quirky human beings whose flaws and peculiarities continue to fascinate her to this day.
But that’s not all, pre ordering Agents of Mayhem at retail or digitally will also secure the “Legal Action Pending” skin pack for Hollywood, Hardtack, Fortune, Braddock, Yeti and Daisy.
The Saints Row spin-off, Agents of Mayhem, from Volition and Deep Silver, will be releasing on this August 15 in the US and August 18 in Europe.
Along with the release date comes a new trailer where the Agents offer up some hints on themselves and what abilities they wield.
In Agents of Mayhem, the only hope for governments and global corporations swept aside by the evil LEGION are a group of corporately funded super agents called the AGENTS of MAYHEM. Set loose in the city of Seoul, with your choice of three agents each offering a different set of skills, weapons, as well as their own unique looks and personalities, you must bring LEGION to their knees.
It’s been a while since the Saints graced our consoles with a fresh new game but they are about to make a return… well, kind of. Volition, the brains behind the Saints Row games are bringing out a ‘new IP’ called Agents of Mayhem – but by the looks of the trailer, it has some serious similarities with the Saints – queue the dubstep beats and purple neon.
Sharing the same Saints Row universe and set in an open world, the agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) are fighting the forces of L.E.G.I.O.N (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).
I really dig the comic book style – the whole team vibe has quiet the Battleborn feel about – only time will tell if it’s as much fun as Saints Row.
What’s there to say about Saints Row IV that we don’t already know? The game has been out since 2013! Well, on the Xbox 360 at least. And now it’s coming to the Xbox One in the form of the Re-Elected Edition – Which is to be like a GOTY kinda thing that will include all the DLC previously released on the 360, as well as the upcoming standalone title, Gat Out of Hell.
I could ramble on about what to expect from Gat Out of hell, but the guys from Deep Silver and Volition do such a great job of it in the launch trailer for both games [below]. So, I’m going to let them do it!
Expect to see Gat out of Hell, and the Re-Elected Edition of Saints Row IV to be launching on the 23 January.
Some say Gat out of Hell will be the best game in January.
Some say the Armchairmageddon is the only way to drive.
Well the man who would know takes the chair for a pleasant drive through rush hour London – come January its virtual counterpart won’t be as ‘pleasant’ for the inhabitants of New Hades, with two mini-guns protruding from the chair’s arms, you’d think that onlookers wouldn’t just stop and stare!
It’s that moment you’ve all been waiting for, Violation’s next Saints Row title has finally been announced and it’s coming to both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, sometime in 2015 and it’ll set you back $20.
Gat out of Hell is a brand new, stand alone addition to the Saints Row universe where you play as the legendary Johnny Gat who is trying to rescue his boss from Satan… in Hell.
The game will feature co-op, devil wings and guns that are named after things from the bible.
It looks bat shit insane and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
The news was announced today from the Australian Classification Board that Saints Row IV cannot be sold in Australia and was the first computer game in Australia to be Refused Classification under the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games that commenced on 1 January 2013
The Classification Board classified the game RC (Refused Classification) in accordance with item 1(a) of the National Classification Code and in accordance with the computer games guidelines.
In the Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV, includes interactive, visual depictions of implied sexual violence which are not justified by context. In addition, the game includes elements of illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentives or rewards. Such depictions are prohibited by the computer games guidelines.
Mr McDonald said the Classification Board had now been applying the new computer games guidelines for almost six months and this was the first game to be refused classification.
“Apart from today’s decision, since the beginning of the year, the Board has classified 17 games R 18+ under the new guidelines,” Mr McDonald said.
When making decisions about computer games, the Classification Board must use the criteria set out in the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games Act) 1995, the National Classification Code and the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games.
The new Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games came into effect on 1 January 2013. Prior to then, Australia did not have an adult category for computer games. An application to classify Saints Row IV was received by the Classification Board on 13 May 2013
