At the PC Gaming Show, developer and publisher Rebellion unleashed the first trailer for Evil Genius 2: World Domination onto the world and as someone who played the original for probably over 1000 hours, it instantly became one of my most anticipated games of 2020.
As a young man, I played more Evil Genius than I slept at one stage as the original cult classic, released all the way back in 2004 is one of those games I will always remember. If you loved the original, than the first ever trailer for Evil Genius 2: World Domination will give you nerd chills.
Rebellion was finally ready to show its “nefarious vision” for Evil Genius 2 to the world. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any gameplay, but you can expect base building, brainwashing devices as well as acts of infamy at the player’s disposal, as well as some awesome doomsday devices. A short description of Evil Genius 2: World Domination reads:
