Volition, the studio behind Agents of Mayhem, laid off over 30 people this week including general manager Dan Cermak, three sources tell Kotaku. The studio previously had around 200 employees.
Saints Row spin-off Agents of Mayhem is out today, and it’s a very different game than its over-the-top, gang-banging, devil-taunting predecessors. It can be daunting, but worry not — we’ve got tips.
If Overwatch had a single-player story mode, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If a big-name developer devoted the time and energy to do a G.I. Joe game right, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If Crackdown had more personality and jokes about balls, it would be Agents of Mayhem. The Saints Row spin-off is a lot of things,…
Next week Volition launches Saints Row spin-off Agents of Mayhem, an open-world action adventure featuring a group of super-powered operatives battling an evil organization bent on world domination. I’ve played five hours of the game, and already there’s a lot to like.
Agents of Mayhem, the newest game from the makers of Saints Row, comes out August 15, the developers at Volition announced today. It’s a single-player open-world game in which you can swap heroes and fight terrorists. Looks colorful.
Saints Row IV just added Steam Workshop support. Already, you can download a guitar the shoots fire and some clothes that (sadly) don’t shoot fire. Why now, though? Because Saints Row IV wasn’t originally created with mods in mind, so devs worked in their spare time to make this possible. Very cool of them!
Agents of Mayhem is the new game from Volition, developer of the unabashedly wacky, deceptively smart Saints Row series. If you were hoping for them to rein it in—to say, make a somber period piece set in 1930s Ireland—prepare to be disappointed.
Saints Row developer Volition Studios today announced Agents of Mayhem, a new game that sure seems a lot like Saints Row.
On May 21, 2001, developer Volition and publisher THQ took gamers to Mars and let them blow the living hell out of everything that moved and most things that didn’t.
Last night, the developers at Volition did something remarkable. They revealed a cancelled game in their biggest series, Saints Row, and then they set it free, releasing it to the public for anyone to download.
Red Faction: Guerrilla, the free-roam action game where you blow up buildings on Mars, just got a free "Steam Edition" update on PC. Among other things, the patch moves the game to Steamworks, adding leaderboards, achievements and trading cards, and completely removes Games for Windows Live. Full patch notes here.
As part of its big PAX panel Volition just announced a new Saints Row. It's called Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, and it'll be out on January 27th.
DeviantArtist KazeXenami has built/is building a dubstep gun that should someday look like the one from Saints Row IV, and it appears that it could be kinda/sorta/theoretically partially functional, even.
See that scantily clad dominatrix? She's your new villain this month in Saints Row IV. You'll be fighting her and her army of sex-workers.
If you find yourself discussing the merits of relationships represented in video games, you'll probably find a lot of people bringing up BioWare games as examples to follow. The Saints Row series doesn't seem like a serious suggestion considering, well, how unserious those games are.
I've gotta hand it to Saints Row IV. Three bucks for four sound effects (OK, and some weapon skins) is pretty fucking obnoxious, when you think about it. But when you pitch it like a blue-screen ad from a 1980s UHF station, it suddenly becomes hilarious.
I wouldn't be surprised if gameplay glitches like this in Saint's Row IV were completely intentional. If anything, they add even more chaos—in a good way, for those who are not satisfied with items like the Dubstep Gun—to what we already have.
