Deep Silver and Volition have released a new trailer for Agents of Mayhem introducing the Firing Squad, a “team of choice” that “shows no mercy,” and are “morally flexible and occasionally reliable.”
Here’s an overview of each character on the team, via Deep Silver:
- Scheherazade – The Iranian enigmatic assassin, has a thousand stories about her past and no one knows the truth, no one that is, apart from Persephone. Incredibly mobile and incredibly deadly Scheherazade fights with her sword or debilitating knives and has the speed to vanish only to reappear next to her target. When melee and evasion are not enough, Scheherazade uses the support of the rest of her team.
- Oni – A former yakuza assassin, Oni left the world of organized crime to join MAYHEM. From behind the mempo mask, Oni radiates an aura of fear that weakens most enemies before he uses his pistols to deal a fatal kill-shot.
- Pierce Washington – Stilwater born and raised, hip-hop wannabe star Pierce Washington was recruited into MAYHEM after Persephone witnessed his capabilities on Devil’s Night, and he became Kingpin. While able to cover any situation with his machine gun, when the going gets tough, Kingpin calls down an irresistible musical force that hypnotizes enemies into a dancing fever they will never walk away from.
Deep Silver also shred information about the game’s teleportation technology:
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.
Agents of Mayhem is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15 in North America and August 18 in Europe.
