Evil Genius 2 Takes Over Consoles Today

Evil Genius 2: World Domination Gets Its Long-Awaited Console Release, Ready to Take Over Consoles Everywhere

Following a long and successful time on the PC, the popular strategy game has its console release. Initially announced in the summer, the base-building game is ready for Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5 today.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Evil Genius 2: World Domination does exactly that — it puts players in the role of an evil genius! Players must try to take over the world as one of four evil characters: a narcissistic tyrant, a muscular madman, a former spymaster or a scientist. Each genius has their own story mode that differs depending on their vision for the world.

Players must recruit and train minions to help them build and defend their evil lair from the Forces of Justice. Minions come with different specialties and players will choose what combination will help them defend their lair. Moreover, players will be able to hire various henchmen to help defend their base as they take over the world. In addition, players can send their crew of minions and henchmen on missions to slowly take over the world.

Featuring modern base-building mechanics, the game mainly centres around lair building. Players will choose one of three island locations to build their lair, disguised as a casino resort. A preview of gameplay can be found in the trailer below.

Originally released for PC on March 30 this year, Evil Genius 2 served as a direct sequel to 2004’s Evil Genius. After years of a rumoured sequel, Evil Genius 2 finally made its debut. This long-awaited console release can now bring in a new audience of players.
