As ideas go, dropping the well worn Saints Row name and just embracing the superhero craziness for Agents of Mayhem may have been a good one for Volition. Set in loosely the same universe as Saints Row, Agents of Mayhem has the player leading a band of super agents against a villainous organisation known a Legion. Agents of Mayhem features a huge open-world rendition of Seoul to explore, taking down Legion by any means possible. Before you suit up and leave the Batcave though, here are the official Agents of Mayhem PC system requirements.

Agents of Mayhem Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3115C 2.5 GHz or AMD Athlon X4 730  2.8GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Radeon R7 360X
  • HDD: TBA
  • DX: DirectX 11

Agents of Mayhem Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4765T 2.0 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.4 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290
  • HDD: TBA
  • DX: DirectX 11

As often happens, these system requirements are labelled as provisional, so are subject to change between now and Agents of Mayhem's launch on August 15th. However, they do give us a pretty decent idea of where Volition is headed with Agents of Mayhem. The biggest takeaway is that these PC system requirements for Agents of Mayhem are multitudes higher than for Volition's last rodeo, Saints Row IV. Visually Agents of Mayhem doesn't look all that special, sporting a cartoonish look which you'd expect to be undemanding. Quite why the system requirements are so much higher isn't clear, but Agents of Mayhem is at least the first title with which Volition has been able to leave the previous generation behind. I suspect with its action focus and multiple playable characters, there could be a lot more going on in Agents of Mayhem at any one time than in Saints Row IV.

In the grand scheme of things, these system requirements aren't bad though. Down at the minimum specs for Agents of Mayhem, a DirectX 11 video card with 2GB VRAM will suffice. This should be enough to play Agents of Mayhem at low settings on PC. It'll only need to be paired with a low-end, dual-core CPU, however, the 8GB minimum RAM requirement may catch a few people out.

The recommend system requirements for Agents of Mayhem meanwhile are pretty much around the current average requirements for a AAA title. These are the sort of components you're going to need if you want to max out Agents of Mayhem's graphics settings and achieve a stable 60+ FPS frame rate at 1080p, possibly even 1440p. A 4GB VRAM GPU is a necessity, as is a quad-core processor, albeit with a low clock speed.
