With Rebellion’s Evil Genius 2 rapidly approaching launch, it makes sense that the marketing machine is going into full gear like any evil plan set for success. After showering us with information regarding system requirements and snippets of gameplay, the developers are providing a cherry on top as well, so to speak. In the latest preview, the developers of Evil Genius 2 show off its Sandbox Mode, which is made for the perfectionist mastermind.
If you ever wanted to pursue your evil plans without restrictions, then Sandbox Mode is your dream come true. Rather than being held back by progression or unlocks, this particular game mode allows your creativity to flow.
You can create the ultimate evil base, or just go crazy. A ridiculous compound of disco balls and pinball traps sure sounds enticing. Or you can slow down productivity by trapping your minions in a never-ending maze. If you cannot be evil to even your own people, what is the point?
Giving players the keys to freedom is the name of the game. With Sandbox Mode, Evil Genius 2 embraces your ingenuity or lack thereof. It is up to you to show off what you can do.
