Video For Dive into the Chilling New Oceans Campaign Pack for Evil Genius 2: World Domination


Hello fellow evil doers!

I hope you have all been enjoying the chance to live out your most despicable plans to take over the world when playing Evil Genius 2: World Domination, which is available to play now with Xbox Game Pass.

Today I am delighted to say that we have just released a chilling new batch of in-game content which will give you even more ways to conquer the globe.

The new Oceans Campaign Pack, available now on the Xbox Store, brings the big freeze to Evil Genius 2 and the new tricks, tools and talents at your disposal will help you give those pesky Forces of Justice the cold shoulder.

First up we have Polar, our newest Genius. She is an ecological mastermind with her heart set on saving the planet by cooling it right down.

Fueled by her frustration that the Forces of Justice aren’t doing anything to stop the world burning, she has decided to take matters into her own hands. And because she’s an Evil Genius… Well, Plan A is always ‘Build a Doomsday Device’. Z.E.R.O. is a terrifying new weapon capable of freezing the earth to its very core. This of course comes with its own unique campaign as Polar strives to reshape the world in her own, frozen image.

All this focus on the frozen parts of the world has also opened up a brand new Arctic Lair. While Polar can use this as her base of operations, she can make herself at home in any of the Tropical Lairs, too. Meanwhile, all of your current favourite maniacal overlords can set up in the Arctic, as well. Evil truly does get everywhere.

But enough of talking about the surface stuff. Let’s dive deeper… into the five new Ocean Regions making their debut on the World Map.

In order to make the most of the new underwater possibilities presented by the Oceans Regions you’re going to need Submarines. As luck would have it, we have added those to the game too. You will need to set your Engineers (a new minion type) to work in their new Workshop where they can build subs for exploring and turrets to protect your lair.

This cool new pack also adds a new Force of Justice Agent divers (J.A.W.S), and an armoured Super-Agent called Deep Six. However, given the right ‘persuasion’, you can turn the Super-Agent to become your Henchman.

Finally we all know that a happy Worker is a productive worker so we need to keep them comfortable, wherever possible, although sometimes a whack from Polar’s trusty staff can do the trick. A new Temperature system means that your workforce’s productivity will be affected if they get too cold or too hot. You will need to place heaters and air conditioning around your Lair to ensure optimum working conditions to get the most out of those little blighters. The temperature system will come into effect in all Lairs, not just Arctic.

Evil Genius 2: Oceans Campaign Pack

As you can see, the Oceans Campaign Pack adds a whole host of new gameplay possibilities and cool new ways to take on the world. We hope you have a lot of fun experimenting and taking on the Forces of Justice!

Evil Genius 2: World Domination is playable now with Xbox Game Pass and the new Oceans Campaign Pack is available to buy from the Xbox Store.

Play Now: Marvel’s Avengers Introduces Jane Foster as The Mighty Thor

Published

on

Avengers - Mighty Thor Hero Image


Summary

  • Jane Foster joins the Marvel’s Avengers roster as the Mighty Thor in a free update.
  • She possesses all the strength and power of a God of Thunder, but with human touches all her own.
  • This update adds to a game already packed with content, including a sprawling single-player story campaign, ten playable heroes, and endless multiplayer action for up to four players.

We hope you’re amped up because Jane Foster, The Mighty Thor, is now playable in Marvel’s Avengers as a free update!

The arrival of the Mighty Thor adds a third flying warrior to the Marvel’s Avengers roster for new team compositions and fresh co-op play. We’ll get into the specifics of her combat kit below, but first, backstory!

The rad lady that is Dr. Jane Foster first appeared as the Goddess of Thunder in 2014’s “Mighty Thor” written by Jason Aaron. Her arc continued in 2019’s “War of the Realms,” culminating when she transcends mortality and is reborn as Valkyrie.

In Marvel’s Avengers, Jane is torn from an alternate timeline through a rift in space-time caused by Tachyon Anomalies. In her original timeline, Jane became the Goddess of Thunder when she took up the mantle from Thor, who in his grief gave up Mjolnir after the A-Day tragedy.

Jane Foster is voiced by the talented Zehra Fazal, known for her work across video games and television. In addition to collectable intel documents and character banter, the Mighty Thor’s story is told through our brand-new animatic “Marvel’s Avengers – The Mighty Thor: Out of Time” illustrated by veteran Marvel artist Takeshi Miyazawa.

So how does Jane play? The Mighty Thor possesses all the strength and power of a God of Thunder, but with human touches all her own.

Jane’s unique talents with Mjolnir begin with her new intrinsic ability All-Mother’s Blessing, and God Tempest, her new Overcharge. All-Mother’s Blessing builds its overcharge meter with melee attacks. Once full, she unleashes her God Tempest, which increases ranged hammer damage and creates shockwaves with each hit.

Her finesse with Mjolnir shines through in several new features including Quick Fire, a new ranged attack combo that allows the Mighty Thor to make a second more powerful ranged attack by timing her next throw. The Seek and Pin upgrade to her Ranged Attack empowers Mjolnir to seek out and pin enemies without needing to aim.

Jane’s expert control extends to melee strikes with Earth’s Finest, which adds a hammer toss to her light attack combo for extra reach. Jane also puts her own spin on classic Odinson moves like Headstrong. She relies on her Thunderkick – a brutal front kick – to send enemies flying.

The Mighty Thor’s kit culminates in The All-Weapon, her brand-new Ultimate Heroic. Drawn from the pages of her Thor and Valkyrie runs, Jane sends Mjolnir to seek and destroy nearby enemy targets. Meanwhile, she calls forth the All-Weapon Undrjarn to protect her, reducing all damage taken while smiting her foes.

The All-Weapon has a full set of specializations and allows you to customize Mjolnir’s strikes, making them faster and channeling a powerful shock status against nearby enemies. Jane can even use Mjolnir as a personal orbiting defense shield. Check her out in action in our most recent War Table Deep Dive below.

In addition to her awesome god-like combat abilities, Jane has a variety of Outfits drawing inspiration from the comics. She also boasts unique Takedowns, Emotes, Nameplates, and has her own Hero Challenge Card and mission chain. These allow you to earn special rewards, including exclusive cosmetics and intel documents that delve deeper into Jane’s story.

We can’t wait for you to storm through Marvel’s Avengers as the Mighty Thor. This update adds to a game already packed with content, including a sprawling single-player story campaign, ten playable heroes, and endless multiplayer action for up to four players.

What’s next for Marvel’s Avengers? Following the addition of The Mighty Thor in patch 2.5, we’ll be adding two new challenges as part of an ambition to advance our narrative through hero and villain-centric content. You can read more in our recent June Development Update.
