Agents of Mayhem Released

Steam News announces the release of Agents of Mayhem, a new action game from Volition. This post refers back to yesterday's launch trailer, and here's the description, which refers to Agents of MAYHEM, Regis Philbin style:
Agents of MAYHEM is the latest open-world, third-person action game from the creators of the Saints Row franchise!

  • In Agents of MAYHEM, you run a no-holds barred operation against a shadowy super-villain organization known only as LEGION and their mysterious leader, the Morningstar.
  • Following the global attacks on Devilís Night, cities of the world are held by the LEGIONís Ministries, bands of powerful villains named for the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Seoul is the personal domain of LEGIONís mad scientists, the Ministry of Pride Ė Doctor Babylon and his rogueís gallery of supporting villains.
  • You play as a variety of Super Agents Ė each with their own distinct look, personality, weapons, and skills. Explore the city of Seoul to rout out LEGION operatives and their vile plans to take over the world.
  • MAYHEMís Agents have a license to do what the hell they want, so long as they do whatever it takes to grow the agency and ultimately defeat LEGION.

Did your autocorrect revolt on you? You spelled Volition correctly in previous posts, but it's well and gone haywire now.

Instead of making Saints Row 5 - they make whatever this trash is?

RIP

They don't have the Saints Row IP dumbass.

Uh, it has playable characters from previous saints row games and is built in the same universe.

Then there's this little snippet straight from their official steam page:

What is Agents of Mayhem?

Agents of MAYHEM is the latest open-world, third-person action game from the creators of the Saints Row franchise!

So yeah.

Dumbass.

-edit- Oh, and i think you will find their parent company owns both volition and the saints row ip.

Yes the game is set in the same universe, and yes the Publisher Deep Silver now owns the right to Saints Row IP, it doesn't mean that they are going to put out another game with the same IP. Especially considering SR4 wasn't all that good or sold well.

I mean, there's a lot wrong with your post:

* Yes, Deep Silver owns Saints Row. It also owns Volition. So, therefore, Volition does own the IP, because their parent company does.

* SR4 has an 86% on Metacritic, would imply that it actually was "all that good."

* SR4 sold a million copies in its first week, which would imply it sold fairly well.

Volition doesn't own SHIT. The Publisher Deep Silver does. And you're saying there is a lot wrong in my post?!?
Deep Silver owns Volition, and unless something in the gaming universe changed, if the company that owns you says "make X game" that's what you do.

And a million copies is good for the first week, hell it's even great, but long term it didn't have the staying power of Saints Row 3. And overall received a 75% to 86% metacritic score depending on which system.

You can get angry, but your post was still wrong:

* Deep Silver owns Violition. Deep Silver owns Saints Row. The two are still together. They were bought together, and Violition owns as much of SR as it did before, in that it's inside the same conglomerate

* Deep Silver did not pay nearly $25M for Saints Row and Violition to keep them apart

* Saints Row 4 has an 86% on the PC on Metacritic. Objectively, that isn't "not very good"

* Saints Row 4 sales figures aren't released, but it sold a million in the first week. Objectively, that isn't "didn't sell well"

SR4 did fine commercially and critically. Deep Silver bought the two as a package because it feels there's more to do. Violition likely did something different because, after over a decade of Saints Row games, they wanted to flex different creative muscles. Doing the same thing for a decade gets tedious, and you need a break.

Game looks like great fun! Too bad the performance on PC is horrid. Hope this can be fixed.

Deep Silver didn't buy Volition to tell them what to do. They bought them because they wanted the studio responsible for Saints Row and Red Faction because they thought those were good games. Volition could make whatever they want, and they chose to make this slightly different spin-off.

Deep Silver does own Saints Row, but what possible reason would they have for saying no, you can't make amother game in this well-liked multi-million selling franchise we paid so much to acquire? They don't own Red Faction, however, but I still would like to see them try open world destruction again... Maybe next time.
