The developers already revealed that their new IP Agents Of Mayhem takes place in the Saints Row universe, so naturally, today’s announcement shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Fan favorite Johnny Gat will be making a guest appearance in Agents Of Mayhem. The only catch is he’s a pre-order bonus exclusive to Gamestop & Steam. Here’s a little backstory to how Johnny plays a role in this game.
“The “Have God re-create the Earth and retcon the entire world of Saints Row” ending of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell means that the dead don’t stay dead. Johnny is back where he was born – Seoul. Gat’s been hard on the beat in this universe as a Lieutenant in Seoul’s police department, but the tragic events of Devil’s Night left Johnny in a coma.
After awakening almost a year later, Johnny discovers that all of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency have been wiped out and replaced with C.O.P (Civilian Overwatch Patrol) robot units. Johnny hates robots, loves guns, and his reputation for wanton destruction makes him the perfect fit for MAYHEM.”
Agents Of Mayhem drops August 15th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
