New Agents of Mayhem Trailer is Faster, Harder, Stronger

Go For A Ride With The New Agents Of Mayhem Trailer

Seoul is a big place. When the Agents aren’t using their teleportation abilities, or climbing up the side of the massive buildings, or using the many construction sites that are repairing the damage done on Devil’s Night to get around the city, the best way to manoeuvre the streets is by taking one of their fleet of luxury vehicles created by the automotive genius of the ARK, Quartermile.

Quartermile takes his love of luxury cars seriously and treats them with the love and respect they deserve. Like a kid in a candy store in the MAYHEM Motor Pool; Quartermile gives gleeful demonstrations of his high security, combat ready vehicles followed by a written test before they any Agents are issued with one. He takes it as an insult if Agents are careless with his creations, which they usually are. Just for fun, each car has an AI for Agents to chat with as they drive. Afterall, who doesn’t love a talking car?

Braddock_artworks_00Master Tactician Janel Braddock comes from a long line of military lifers. Her father served in Nam, her grandfather in Korea. This Louisiana native’s blood goes back to the Battle of Lake Borgne. There was never any question she was going to serve.

When she discovered the recruits she was training were actually going to be shipped off to fight for LEGION, Janel’s faith in the US Military was shaken. She left her beloved corps and joined the MAYHEM to even the stage.

Nobody knows the tactics LEGION grunts use better than Janel–because she trained the sons-a-bitches. Janel was raised hard in a world where nancies weren’t allowed and failure was never an option. She maintains those values to this day.

Combat Braddock is a tough-as-nails ass-kicker with a powerful burst rifle and a range of precision attacks to boost its effectiveness. When LEGION really gets on her bad side, she’ll use her cigar to mark the target for a salvo of laser attacks from the ARK cannons. Braddock is excellent at taking out single, powerful enemies.

Daisy_artworks_00Growing up in a house full of boys, Piper Andrews learned to defend herself early on. When it came time to pick a path in life, she opted for a run in the military. She enjoyed her time there, and learned a lot about heavy weapons and machinery, but found the rules and regulations far too restricting. After the military, she had a hard time finding a job she enjoyed. Enrolling in a derby girls team as a hobby, though, Piper finally found something she not only loved but was damn good at. She found out about the MAYHEM through a friend, who vouched for Piper as the best heavy weapons expert out there. Persephone gave her a shot and it’s been magic ever since.

While incredibly strong, Daisy is very feminine and unafraid of her sexuality. She takes what she wants and never holds back from making the first move. Her motivation for being a Saint is simply that she enjoys it.

Combat Daisy is quick to reposition with her massive minigun thanks to her powered skates, which are also great for closing for her pick of big close range special attacks when her minigun overheats. When it is time for real MAYHEM, she can dig in and overload her minigun for maximum firepower. Daisy is a tough anchor for any squad, with a lot of mobility thanks to her derby.

Yeti_artworks_01In the aftermath of Devil’s Night, rogue elements in Russia’s government and military organized a secret opposition to LEGION–the New Revolutionary Council (новый революционный совет). Oleg Kirlov, a soldier in an elite unit of the Russian army, was among the first to join. The NRC initiated Russia’s top-secret “Cold Warrior” program to build an army of super-soldiers that could help them fight LEGION. Unfortunately, most who volunteered were driven made by the process. Oleg was one of the few who retained his sanity and brilliant mind.
Months later the Council was betrayed by a Cold Warrior who believed that LEGION offered the best path to restore Russia’s greatness. Most of the Council was arrested and executed. Oleg escaped Russia and joined MAYHEM.

Oleg eventually wants to return to Russia and continue the work of the NRC.

Combat Yeti’s frost-thrower is effective at close range, drawing on his icy strength to slow and even freeze enemies solid. Already incredibly effective at melee, when his frost-thrower freezes up Yeti can break the ice off with an even more powerful attack. Yeti is incredible at close range and tough enough to close the distance, but even better when he can swap back and forth with a highly mobile agent instead.
