Agents Of Mayhem Trailer Still Makes The Game Look Boring, But The OST Is Hot
Agents of Mayhem
(Last Updated On: August 1, 2017)

A new trailer for Agents of Mayhem was released for the upcoming third-person shooter for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The trailer is nothing special, showcasing the butch black chick, Braddock, being a butch patriotic black chick; the Russian ice dude, Yeti, and the foul-mouthed roller chick, Daisy.

These are described as Persephone’s final time, the Carnage A Trois.

Volition does everything in their power to make the game exciting, using fancy edits and a collage of carnage in order to convince gamers that it’s something worth playing, which you can check out below.

Okay that trailer doesn’t do anything for the game, but in the press release they linked to the Soundcloud account for Deep Silver, which includes the theme songs for Agents of Mayhem, and I have to be completely honest: those songs are cool.

You can listen to the Soundcloud playlist below, and I’m shocked that the themes are as catchy as they are. Check it out.

It’s a shame that such a lively soundtrack is being wasted on a game like Agents of Mayhem.

The main problem is that the gameplay is a rehash of Saints Row IV but with a MOBA-style skill overlay for the hero-shooter style character selection. Worse yet is that all the weapons and skills are restricted to the characters, so if you like a certain weapon you’re forced to play a certain character.

Even worse yet is that there are DPS characters, support characters, crowd-control characters and tanks… IN A SINGLE-PLAYER GAME!.

There is no co-op or PvP so having these different character classes still makes no sense to me at all. There’s no visual character customization outside of preset skins for the characters, and the leveling up and skills still don’t make any sense given that the game’s enemies are mostly the same kind of bullet-sponge enemies featured in Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV.

But whatever…

You can look for Agents of Mayhem to launch on August 15th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    Yikes!… the game just looks more and more like a generic snooze fest the more trailers they release…

  • SevTheBear

    Yet another game I will skip

    IN A SINGLE-PLAYER GAME!

    Wait. What?

    The game already sounded like a glorified Saints Row IV MOBA expansion pack, which was already enough to kill 95% of my interest in it, given that SR4 was already a glorified SR3 expansion pack… But it doesn’t even have coop multiplayer that was previously present in past Saints Row games? WTF?!

    Music might be catchy now but in released game its all going to be dumbstep and shit i bet.

  • Mr.Towel

    Is it just me or the game is looking last-gen as hell in that trailer?

    • It’s always looked last gen. It never not looked last gen.

      • Mr.Towel

        I probably wasn’t paying enough attention then.

      It’s worse than that. Yeti is what Oleg from SR3 is in this universe. Now, go compare the character models of Oleg from SR3 to this game. Somehow they have managed to make him look worse than he did TWO games ago! (Three if you count Gat out of Hell).
