Saints Rows‘ Johnny Gat will be playable as a 13th Agent in Agents of Mayhem for users who pre-order the game at GameStop in the U.S. and “at retail and on Steam” in Europe, publisher Deep Silver announced.
The pre-order bonus includes an exclusive mission to unlock Johnny Gat, a personal mission, and vehicle, character, and weapon skins.
Here’s a full overview of the character, via Deep Silver:
Ji-hoon “Johnny” Gat has led an intercontinental life. Born in Seoul, but raised from the age of nine in Palisades Park, New Jersey—he joined the Newark police force straight out of high school. He served in Newark’s 1st Precinct for about a year, but his bad attitude rubbed his superiors the wrong way and he soon found himself unemployed. Looking to make a fresh start, he moved back to his boyhood home. There, he joined the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, and though his attitude hadn’t changed much, he was getting results. He quickly came to the attention of Chief Superintendent General Cheon, who frustratedly tolerated Gat’s general recklessness. Eventually, Gat worked his way up the ranks to become a Senior Inspector. Everything would change on Devil’s Night, when most of Seoul Metro was wiped out and Gat got knocked into a coma. He awoke almost a year later to discover C.O.P. robot units had replaced his entire department. But Persephone was aware of him, and immediately recruited him, recognizing his reputation for wanton destruction made him the perfect fit for MAYHEM.
He’s Gat. We all know Gat. He’ll take any job that involves committing acts of extreme violence. He also has a skewed sense of justice, and being part of MAYHEM allows him to right the wrongs he perceives around him. Also, the looser structure of the organization, plus the fact that it’s a privately-held company means he’s no longer subject to the rigid rules of government employment.
Additionally, Deep Silver announced that users who pre-order Agents of Mayhem digitally will get Lazarus, “the hybrid of humanity and machinery,” as a playable character. Here’s a full overview of her, via Deep Silver:
True to her half-machine heritage, digital pre-order purchasers of Agents of Mayhem will be receiving a brand new Agent, Lazarus. This exclusive character, Lazarus, is a merging of woman and machine; the top rung of the evolutionary ladder. As an agent of MAYHEM, she encounters an endless stream of competitors ready to challenge her for that distinction. While she’s evolved beyond her own humanity, she still has a great love and respect for humankind as a whole. MAYHEM allows her to watch over those quirky human beings whose flaws and peculiarities continue to fascinate her to this day.
Agents of Mayhem is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15 in North America and August 18 in Europe.
