Evil Genius 2: World Domination releases on March 30th​

Rebellion has announced that Evil Genius 2: World Domination will release on March 30th. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team also released a new trailer that you can find below.

Evil Genius 2 promises to let you live out your dreams of being the bad guy. Players will build their secret island lair, recruit and train a workforce of loyal minions and powerful henchmen, defend their base from the Forces of Justice and dominate the world stage.

Here are the game’s key features:

  • Four campaigns. Play as narcissist despot Max, heavy-muscle madman Ivan, manipulative ex-spymaster Emma or scientist zealot Zalika. Guide your chosen evil genius through their own unique story campaign as they impose their twisted vision upon an unsuspecting globe.
  • Three island locations. Choose where to build your supervillain HQ from three island paradises, each with their own gameplay challenges. From the outside your base looks like a beautiful casino resort, but behind closed doors lies all manner of unimaginable evil.
  • Intuitive lair-building. Design, build and customize your lair as you see fit. With modern base-building mechanics and loads of gameplay features totally new to the series, including multiple-floored lairs, strategy fans will feel right at home with Evil Genius 2.
  • New rooms, henchmen, agents, traps and more. As showcased in today’s trailer, Evil Genius 2 features tons of menacing characters and devilish contraptions to use in your lair. From the deliciously fatal Sushi Chef to the always famished Venus Spy-Trap, you have a huge number of ways to stop the Forces of Justice from foiling your dastardly plans.
  • World domination 2.0. Take to the world stage and execute your campaign of total supremacy. Send your minions and henchmen on missions across the globe as you exert your influence and control over world regions. Complete lucrative schemes, expand your criminal network, recruit new henchmen and steal all manner of useful loot – from the Doors to Fort Knox to a living, breathing dodo.
Enjoy!

The first was a charming but fairly undercooked clone of Dungeon Keeper with a brilliant "Bond movie parody" vibe.
We'll see about this sequel.

Looking forward to this one, hopefully it takes off these sort of management sims where you take the large actions and then watch them playout in real time are a dying breed.

''As the game progresses, the scope and potential available to players is made out into focus. While this is a game that could easily be sat down and played for an hour or two, Evil Genius 2 will eat up countless nights filled with shaping the perfect base and plotting “just one more mission”.
If watching a base slowly take shape as you lord over it like a villainous 60s-themed god with just enough humour to never let the game get stale is your cup of tea, Evil Genius 2 is the game for you. It takes what countless players enjoyed back in the early 00s but gives it new life, delivering a fresh fun take on the classic genre. ''

It looks great, have been hyped for this for a while and everything I'm seeing now closer to launch is reinforming my view. I hope it can reach an 85 or so on metacritic.

One of the reasons why i bought a Pc again. Loved the first one, hopefully the traps get better in part 2. Found them pretty useless.
