Rebellion showed off the first trailer for Evil Genius 2: World Domination during E3’s PC Gaming Show.
The original Evil Genius was released way back in 2004 by Elixir Studios and Vivendi Universal Games, and the follow-up will finally be coming out next year for Windows PC via Steam.
As with the original, Evil Genius 2: World Domination will be a satirical lair-building game where you play as a Bond-style supervillain. You can check out the reveal trailer above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
