The First Three Agents Of Mayhem Showcased

Agents of Mayhem puts the skills of a dozen high-powered operatives at your fingertips (including being able to switch between three of them in the field on the fly), but they'd get very mad if you thought of them as just skin swaps.

A new trailer for the title shows off the Mayhem organization's first three hires: Hollywood, Fortune, and Hardtack. Each bring something different to the table, and you can see gameplay of some of their talents in the trailer below.

Agents of Mayhem comes out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15.

Sub-Zero, Red Hood, And Starfire Join Injustice 2 Roster As First Wave DLC

The Injustice 2 roster has no shortage of ass-kickers, but that's not stopping NetherRealm from adding to the battle royale. The Fighter Pack 1 DLC brings three more familiar faces into the fray – Starfire, Batman villain Red Hood, and Mortal Kombat's own Sub-Zero. 

Starfire looks all grown up, more in line with her Red Hood and the Outlaws era than her Teen Titans turn. Red Hood pulls off a fashion combo attack by wearing a leather jacket over his sleek armor. Sub-Zero looks more bad-ass than usual with some icy armor of his own.

You can see the trio step up to the fight in Warner Bros. latest teaser trailer:

Trailer Introduces Us To The Berserker Faction

We've been slowly learning more about Piranha Bytes' upcoming action/RPG Elex. The post-apocalyptic science-fantasy game is set to feature deep moral choices and a large cast of original characters from different factions. Today, Piranha Bytes released a trailer showing off its newest faction, The Berserkers.

The Berserkers have a way to bring the world back to life by using their "world hearts," which are massive plants that can revitalize an area. They travel the world, looking for locations to plant them. With this mana-based approach, they refuse to use any kind of technology, which means you see them using swords, crossbows, axes, and magic instead of plasma rifles, shotguns, and flamethrowers like other factions.

You can learn more about the Berserkers and Elex below.

New Video Provides A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Surge

Focus Home Interactive has peeled back the curtain on its upcoming sci-fi game The Surge, which shows how developer Deck13 has created its so-called "Dark Souls in space." The clip has a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and info, including how you mo-cap an exosuit that doesn't technically exist.

The solution, as it turns out, involves arm-extenders, weights, and a patient mo-cap performer. Take a look at the clip below to see the game in action, and also get plenty of shots of enemies getting torn apart and repurposed.
