Aperture Science's Enrichment Centre, September 14th, 2021 – Ever wanted to walk through walls and get from one side of your vast evil lair to the other in an instant? Well now you can thanks to the experts at Aperture Science who have worked wonders to bring the world of Portal to Evil Genius 2. The new free DLC pack is available now for all PC players and includes a host of amazing upgrades for your lair based upon the classic Portal games from Valve. These include portals, autonomous turrets, propulsion gel and more…

The new Portal DLC for Evil Genius 2 includes:

• A new room type – the Test Chamber
• 4 new traps (Propulsion Gel, Repulsion Gel, Cake That Is A Lie, Aperture Science Multi-Purpose Science Panel)
• 4 new Loot items (Orange Portal, Blue Portal, Companion Cube, Actual Cake)
• 3 new Lair items (Turret, Security Camera, Test Chamber Door)
• New Decor items
• Accompanying Side Story Objectives

And as if that wasn’t enough we are also bringing you robots! The new Mechanical Minions DLC Pack gives Evil Geniuses a modern alternative to flesh-and-blood subordinates. These new workers are incredibly reliable and do not need to be fed, watered or even paid (although charging them isn’t a bad idea) making them the ideal choice for the ultra-modern villain.

The Mechanical Minions pack includes:

• 2 New minion types (The Work-O-Tron + The GuardBot 2.0)
• 3 New Lair items (Work-O-Tron Assembly Line, GuardBot 2.0 Assembly Line, Robot Charging Station)
• Accompanying Side Story Objectives

Available now on Steam, the Mechanical Minions pack is included as part of the Evil Genius 2 Season Pass or to buy separately, priced £2.99.

A new trailer featuring both the new Portal and Mechanical Minions DLC is available to watch here

Its flagship Sniper Elite series is renowned for its authentic stealth and sniping gameplay with more than 20 million players worldwide. 2000 AD is synonymous with the absolute finest in British comic book art. With the acquisition of a $100m film studio and the world’s largest archive of English language comics, Rebellion continues to grow from strength to strength.

Rebellion now operates across books, comics, TV and film, but at its core it’s still a leading developer and publisher of games. Whether it’s the breathtaking intensity of Sniper Elite 4, the face-hugging terror of Aliens vs. Predator or the grindhouse frenzy of the Zombie Army series, the Oxford-based studio is revered for creating stand-out games designed to thrill.
