Be your worst self.
Have you ever ever thought about living out power fantasies of world domination? Well, now you can as Evil Genius 2: World Domination is coming to consoles in 2021.
Evil Genius 2 gives you the option to choose from 4 villains, mad scientist Zalika, the former spy Emma, Maximilian a power-hungry industrialist, and former henchman Red Ivan. Each of them is considered a genius in their own right and have their own unique missions, specialities, and doomsday devices.
Most of Evil Genius 2 will consist of establishing yourself as a feared supervillain as you plot your way towards world domination. You’ll have to construct a base on a tropical island to house your doomsday device while operating a casino as your legit business, there are three islands to choose from each with different designs and features.
Evil Genius 2 is a real-time strategy game and it lives up to the genre when it comes to the construction of your base. There’s a lot for players to consider when building different rooms, infrastructures, and amenities which will go a long way in defending your base from nosy agents or anyone trying to thwart your schemes.
Players will also have access to minions, and not the ones you’re thinking of. Each and every one of your minions come with their own traits and personalities and can be trained into three different classes, muscle, deception, and science.
You can send your minions out into the world to commit crimes and pick up gold while expanding your criminal empire and recruit powerful crime bosses. If you feel like channelling your inner Hank Scorpio you can even test your doomsday weapon on any part of the world. Sounds deliciously evil if you ask me.
Evil Genius 2 received a fairly good reception for its initial release on PC, and we even reviewed the PC version over on our all-platform YouTube channel, Pure Play TV.
Evil Genius 2 will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One later this year.
