July 18, 2017 Written by Zarmena Khan

Saints Row studio Volition has revealed a new trailer for its upcoming title, Agents of Mayhem, introducing us to the game’s firing squad: Iranian assassin Scheherazade, former Yakuza assassin Oni, and hip-hop wannabe star Pierce Washington.

Here’s an official overview of the characters:

Scheherazade, the Iranian enigmatic assassin, has a thousand stories about her past and no one knows the truth, no one that is, apart from Persephone. Incredibly mobile and incredibly deadly Scheherazade fights with her sword or debilitating knives and has the speed to vanish only to reappear next to her target. When melee and evasion are not enough, Scheherazade uses the support of the rest of her team.  

A former yakuza assassin, Oni left the world of organized crime to join MAYHEM. From behind the mempo mask, Oni radiates an aura of fear that weakens most enemies before he uses his pistols to deal a fatal kill-shot.  

Last but not least, Stilwater born and raised, hip-hop wannabe star Pierce Washington was recruited into MAYHEM after Persephone witnessed his capabilities on Devil’s Night, and he became Kingpin. While able to cover any situation with his machine gun, when the going gets tough, Kingpin calls down an irresistible musical force that hypnotizes enemies into a dancing fever they will never walk away from.  

Agents of Mayhem releases on August 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
