Volition released a new trailer today for its upcoming action adventure title, Agents of Mayhem. The video above introduces Hollywood, Hardtack and Fortune who make up the Franchise Force.
In a press release, the developer explained:
As the “Face of MAYHEM”, Hollywood thinks of the agency as a franchise which needs to be marketed. With Fortune and Hardtack making up some of the first recruited agents, it only seemed natural the three of them should be the driving “force” behind that “franchise”. Thus Franchise Force was born! Of course, it also helps their combat capabilities complement each other well since Fortune is swift and damaging, Hardtack is tough and deadly at close range, and Hollywood is a good mix of the other two.
With the teleport technology capability of MAYHEM, agents in your squad are able to instantly teleport into and out of combat. This allows on-the-fly swapping of agents in the field, allowing one to heal while another takes their place, or allowing the best agent for a particular fight or task in your squad of three to replace the currently active one.
Set in the Saints Row universe, Agents of Mayhem is an open world single-player game scheduled for release on August 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
