A new trailer arrives for the fun and wacky Agents of Mayhem from developer Volition. It features a tribute to the classic Magnum PI show along with lots of action-packed game-play action. Deep Silver also wants to let us know about other agents including Ariadne and Gremlin, two special-classed characters that have their own unique style of combat.
Agents of Mayhem will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on August 15th, 2017 in North America and August 18th in Europe.
Konstanze Adler a.k.a. ARIADNE
George Adler was to be Doctor Babylon’s prized lieutenant. LEGION’s science-boss
recruited the American computer genius to outshine Nero Iscariot. Unfortunately
for George, Babylon became aware that Adler was actually working with the
Minister of Greed on the side and killed him.
That would have been the end of it, if not for George’s daughter, Konstanze,
whose mind was equal to her father’s. Babylon recruited her to finish her
father’s work. To ensure she could not betray him, Babylon inserted a
control chip in her brain. Babylon became fond of Konstanze, coming
to regard her as a daughter. He even codenamed his little muse
“Ariadne.” But she hated her father’s murderer she overcame the
chip in her brain.
Ariande became a psychopath. Eventually, over time, Konstanze gained some
clarity. But she is still woefully insane. She wants nothing more than to regain her
sanity and make herself whole again.
To the envy of the other lieutenants, Konstanze has complete free will to do
whatever she wants. As Babylon puts it, “Why would I constrain such wild
She’s looking to complete herself and be accepted as a rational, sane lieutenant within LEGION.
She has been tainted by LEGION technology and is trying to remove it from her body
She knows she’s been a pawn of pride and greed but still fluctuates between them
Wants vengeance against Pride, wants to remove their advanced technology from the world
Wants to be taken seriously for her genius, not totally unlike Doctor Babylon
She was given the chip in her brain so that Doctor Babylon could keep her under control.
Katy Fox a.k.a. GREMLIN
The only daughter of a working-class family in Tennessee, Katy Fox grew up with
a lot of free time. Time she spent tinkering with machines, from her
family’s dishwasher to her neighbor’s classic car. Her dad worked in
construction and would often bring her onto job sites–until her fiddling
with a cement truck’s transmission almost brought down an office building.
This mischievous curiosity has generally served her well and even landed
her a free ride at MIT. Unfortunately, Devil’s Night put the kibosh on that
dream as America’s hallowed halls of learning shut their doors as the
country regrouped. She found another dream though in MAYHEM.
As Gremlin, she runs the R&D Lab aboard the Ark the only way she knows
how: controlled chaos. She likes mess, loves mistakes, and can’t wait to get
her hands on something new so she can tear it apart and see how it
works. She has a natural affinity for machines. She understands them, and
they understand her.
She’s the little sister of the MAYHEM. Pretty much everybody loves the
spunky little sprite in charge of creating the team’s deadliest weapons. Even
Persephone appreciates Gremlin’s shiny disposition, though the head of MAYHEM will never
admit to it.
Gremlin is always perky, upbeat and thrilled to be doing her job. She has a front row seat to the
best technology in the world, and constantly has several side projects going. To
Gremlin, nothing breaks; things just present new, wonderful opportunities.
Rarely gets frustrated.
Nothing breaks; things just present new, wonderful opportunities.
Doesn’t blaspheme or use conventional swear words; she invents her own terms.
