Evil Genius 2: World Domination receiving Sandbox Mode at launch, now available for pre-purchase

From Press Release:

CLASSIFIED (February 16, 2021) – Intuitive improvisation is the secret of genius, and the best kind of genius is evil. That’s why we’re bringing Sandbox Mode to Evil Genius 2: World Domination – free and available at launch.

Build your lair without having to worry about campaign progression or unlocking things – or about how little sense your layout makes. Fill your floors with umpteen pinball bumper traps and watch enemy agents bounce around perpetually. Create the first open-plan supervillain HQ. Or make it impossible for minions to do their jobs by turning your corridors into a ridiculous maze; it’s up to you. If you want the freedom to create the villainous base of your dreams and someone else’s nightmares, Sandbox Mode is perfect for you.
