Evil Genius 2’s first chunk of paid content, the Cabal Pack, is here, bringing with it a new henchman.
Evil Genius 2, sequel to the original 2004 game, makes you a Bond-style villain and tasks you with running your criminal empire while dealing with the usual do-gooders trying to stop you. In our review we said “a simulation game with a twist, Evil Genius 2: World Domination is a must-play for fans of the genre.”
And now, you can get the new Cabal Pack, available for $4.99 or your local equivalent (or as part of the season pass). It adds a new henchman to your game in the form of Espectro, who looks for all the world like a buff Mysterio. It also includes:
• Themed reskins for other Henchmen (Eli Barracuda, Janet Bombe, Sir Daniel Ernest Hemingboone, Full Metal Jackie)
• New Lair Equipment Item – Change your Henchmen’s visual appearance with the Cabal Indoctrination Chamber!
• R.A.Y.G.U.N Interrogation Device
• Accompanying Side Story objectives.
It hasn’t been particularly well received by Steam users, receiving a “mostly negative” rating. The primary objection seems to be that it’s been released less than a month after the original game came out. That said, none of the people reviewing it negatively seem to have bought the content, so make of that what you will.
Whatever your opinion, if you decide to take the plunge, you can buy Evil Genius 2’s Cabal Pack on PC right now.
