Today Deep Silver and Volition are pleased to introduce your first three agents in the upcoming action-thriller Agents of Mayhem. Meet Hollywood, Hardtack, and Fortune. These three have more than their fair share of.... Well, let's just call it charisma for now. See all three in action in this brand new trailer, and catch some of the outrageous highlights in the gallery below:
"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."
Now I want you to think back to Transformers Devastation and consider everything that made that game so fun. It was nonstop action, fast-paced and satisfying combat, and the ability to swap out Transformers on the fly depending on the battle or challenge at hand. It sounds like Agents of Mayhem will also let you swap out characters on the fly, so you're not restricted to selecting a single agent for the duration of a mission. This should keep things fresh and fun:
"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. "
So who's your favorite so far? We love the no-nonsense, foul-mouthed Hardtack, but Fortune's drone and enhanced agility seem like a lot of fun as well. Picking favorites won't be necessary, we suppose, since we can teleport multiple characters in and out as we please!
