The crazies over at Volition have released a brand new trailer for Agents of Mayhem, and today we get a great new look at all of trouble you can cause with vehicles. See the trailer for yourself above.

What's a destructive, action-packed, open-world game without a few high-powered vehicles, huh? For those of you who don't know, Agents of Mayhem is coming from several key developers who brought you all Saints Row, so you know you're in for a massive and highly interactive city to explore. We want to explore and wreak havoc in style, and thankfully the "Quartermile" has our back.

"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 maneuver the streets is by taking one of their fleet of luxury vehicles created by the automotive genius of the ARK, Quartermile."

As you can see from the trailer, it's just as much fun to destroy cars as it is to drive them, and the folks over at Volition love to think of creative ways for their players to make big explosions. This we like. Quartermile? He's not such a big fan.

"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?"

It's just plain silly. It makes very little sense, and I think that's why Agents of Mayhem is picking up so much steam. As Grand Theft Auto V begins to develop a few wrinkles with age, we're eagerly awaiting the next grand open-world chaos simulator. Agents of Mayhem may assume that throne.

Agents of Mayhem launches on August 18 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
