    It's not a Saints Row game. It's a new IP that that has a connection to the same universe.

    I'm not an administrator here. You would need to talk to someone on staff.

  2. That's good to hear because i would hate to see them ruin a great series:). I know you just do your job as i do mine and said so far it seems you have done very well from what i can tell:). I may just be a simple guy that does mods, but we are the ones that buy the games we love;). Game on volition

    Thanks man. I think too many studios and publishers approach things from a very Marketing-y angle. I try to bring simple honesty, excitement, and integrity to how we communicate as a studio.

    Back to the SR thing, it was a very conscious decision to NOT call it a Saints Row game since it looks, feels, and plays very differently. Gameplay details and footage will be hitting incredibly soon and you'll be able to see for yourself. Honestly, I think it's fucking awesome, and I love playing it as much as I can, even in this early state.

    Oh, and we'll also be doing an AOM stream tomorrow afternoon on Volition twitch with me, Jason Blair, and Josh Stinson. It's not gameplay or anything, just a chance for us to chat about the game and take questions for an hour.

    I went and took a look at the website.

    I hate it. I hate the gameplay in it's entirety. Well, as far as it's been explained.

    I hope to god work starts on Saints Row 5 ASAP after this... ugh...

    Judging by Volition's past development cycles, the studio has a track record of working on multiple titles simultaneously. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, this is a list of pairs of games Volition worked on at the same time in recent years:
    Saints Row 2 - Red Faction Guerrilla
    Saints Row 3 - Red Faction Armageddon
    Saints Row 4 - Saints Row: ETD
    Agents of Mayhem - ???
    So yeah, I'd be genuinely surprised if they had their whole staff working on nothing but AoM during the last 4 years. To me it would make more sense if they had split their studio in two teams working on two separate projects under the same roof. Just like they did before THQ's downfall. Volition could be working on SR5 right now for all we know.

    An excellent point. Perhaps many of us (myself included) have rushed to judgement simply because of our preconceived idea that the next game would be a Saints Row game, and we've closed our mind to anything other than that. I may enjoy playing this game just like I enjoyed playing the Red Faction games. It's just not a Saints Row game.

    I've seen how a certain fraction of the people who play Saints Row prefer the "classic" real-world style of Saints Row 1, 2, and 3 (myself included) while others prefer the "space-alien/superpower" style of Saints Row IV. So whichever direction Volition picked for their next game, some of their fans would be disappointed. Damned if you do. Damned if you don't.

    But, what if they made 2 games -- a "space-alien/superpower" game, and another "classic" Saints Row game?

    What if ?

    Exactly what I was getting at. Saints Row 2 and Red Faction Guerrilla are both among my favorite games of all time even though RFG had neither character customization nor cooperative multiplayer. All it had was a fun single player gameplay and a few nods to the Saints Row universe - both qualities I very much expect to be in Agents of Mayhem. Sign me up, Volition, I'm hyped.
  8. It looks interesting, having 3 characters and able to switch on the fly could make things fun. Just wondering, is the game going to purely single player or is there going to have a co-op more as well?

    I do hope the open world is much larger than previous Saints Row games.
  9. nope, it's singleplayer only (so far)
  10. I think you should have a new agents of mayhem section but clicking on it will redirect you to a different website
