As Agents of Mayhem is set in the Saint’s Row universe, we suppose it’s not entirely impossible for familiar characters to pop up. As it happens, Volition is adding the one true badass, Johnny Gat, to their roster of agents. He’ll be fully playable, so long as you pre-order the game from GameStop.
Yeah, that’s a pretty big catch, but if you do put down the dollars, you’ll gain access to: Gat, an exclusive unlock mission, personal mission, and vehicle/character/weapon skins. The Agents of Mayhem Gat variant is still voiced by Daniel Dae Kim, so he’ll sound exactly as you remember him.
How does Johnny tie into Agents of Mayhem? We’ll let the press release below get you all up to speed.
The “Have God re-create the Earth and retcon the entire world of Saints Row” ending of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell means that the dead don’t stay dead. Johnny is back where he was born – Seoul. Gat’s been hard on the beat in this universe as a Lieutenant in Seoul’s police department, but the tragic events of Devil’s Night left Johnny in a coma. After awakening almost a year later, Johnny discovers that all of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency have been wiped out and replaced with C.O.P (Civilian Overwatch Patrol) robot units. Johnny hates robots, loves guns, and his reputation for wanton destruction makes him the perfect fit for MAYHEM.
What do you make of this pre-order incentive? Let us know in the comments.
