Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsVolition has long been known for their Saints Row series, but now they're finally trying their hand at their first new project in quite a while with Agents of Mayhem, and it's finally coming in late August. Agents of Mayhem may not be Saints Row per se but it carries a lot of the same gameplay characteristics, such as the focus on action, customization, an open world, and even some of the same style and humor. You can see for yourself in the newest trailer below, which details all 12 agents in the game. You can play Agents of Mayhem for yourself when it hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15.

Marcus Estrada posted a article in Industry NewsSaints Row IV was announced last week by new owner Deep Silver. Alongside the news was a trailer and release date of August 20th. With the game fairly near to release, Deep Silver has now decided to turn to the community. What do you want in a Saints Row IV Collector's Edition? The choice is up to you. A survey is currently live which lets anyone hop in and select what items they'd like to see in such an edition as well as rank how much they want each one. Perhaps Deep Silver is outsourcing these choices to gamers themselves to avoid the disaster that was Dead Island's Zombie Bait Edition. There's a great deal of choice in possible trinkets. There are standards like steelboxes, concept art books, and character figures as choices. For some reason an auto-tune device is also listed despite that already being available with the Saints Row: The Third Special Edition. Other baubles listed include a belt buckle, cloth map, wooden cigar box, and "ridiculously amazing glass display case with lights." Do you think more companies should let gamers have a hand in choosing collector's goodies?
When THQ folded and began selling off assets, many were worried about how their favorite franchises would be split up. Deep Silver nabbed the Saints Row name and are ready to help see the next game in the series see completion. Today they announced that they're bringing Saints Row IV out this year. The game, still developed by Volition, was described as follows: "Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak's mental grasp. Escape the simulation that's trapped the Saints crew, or die trying. Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet." There's no doubt that the upcoming game will still be incredibly strange, but in an even more obvious fashion than usual. However, those who would have liked to see the next game on a new system are going to have to wait for "Saints Row V", as Deep Silver made the announcement for current gen consoles as well as PC on August 20th. Joystiq then received clarification on that statement and were told their plans do not include a Wii U release.
