Agents of Mayhem unveils the Firing Squad today in a new trailer focused on another in a line of trios of heroes coming to the game in its late August release. Oni, Kingpin, and Scheherazade make up the threesome, and they’re definitely a mix of styles. Note: Kingpin is right from the Saint’s Row crew, so that’s pretty awesome.
From the press release:
When LEGION’s most sinister troops are wreaking havoc and MAYHEM needs to get the job done, Persephone calls on The Firing Squad. YouTube and direct download links and other goodies below.
Ladies first: Scheherazade, the Iranian enigmatic assassin, has a thousand stories about her past and no one knows the truth, no one that is, apart from Persephone. Incredibly mobile and incredibly deadly Scheherazade fights with her sword or debilitating knives and has the speed to vanish only to reappear next to her target. When melee and evasion are not enough, Scheherazade uses the support of the rest of her team.
A former yakuza assassin, Oni left the world of organized crime to join MAYHEM. From behind the mempo mask, Oni radiates an aura of fear that weakens most enemies before he uses his pistols to deal a fatal kill-shot.
Last but not least, Stilwater born and raised, hip-hop wannabe star Pierce Washington was recruited into MAYHEM after Persephone witnessed his capabilities on Devil’s Night, and he became Kingpin. While able to cover any situation with his machine gun, when the going gets tough, Kingpin calls down an irresistible musical force that hypnotizes enemies into a dancing fever they will never walk away from.
Showing no mercy, morally flexible and occasionally reliable, The Firing Squad are the team of choice.
