VR Burglary Sim ‘The Break-In’ Lets You Steal Things With Your Friends

Infiltrate dangerous locations, evade armed security, and escape with high-value items.

Available on Steam Early Access later this year, The Break-In is an online co-op game that will have you teaming up with friends to loot expensive valuables from a variety of secure locations while evading guards, the police, and neighborhood residents.

Your objective is simple. Infiltrate unique locations like museums, banks, and suburban neighborhoods; avoid detection by guards and nosy civilians, and escape quietly with your loot before anyone catches wind of your little operation.

This will be easier said than done, however, as each level will feature its own set of procedurally-generated challenges. According to developer jorgen games Ltd., each mission will require a considerable amount of planning in order to properly succeed. Thankfully, you won’t be alone in your illegal endeavors.

You can team up with three other thieves as you take on a series of increasingly-difficult contracts that will have stepping into a variety of roles, from the tech specialist handling communications from your van to the grease man tasked with scaling the drainpipes and breaking in through the open window.

As you progress from amateur burglar to master thief, you’ll unlock an arsenal of increasingly-powerful gadgets designed to assist you in your heists. This includes everything from old ladders and basic construction hammers to more advanced tools such as the grappling gun.

The Break-In launches later this year on Steam Early Access for $10-$15. Jorgen games Ltd. states that the experience will feature VR/non-VR crossplay, allowing those without a headset to join in on the action from a standard desktop PC.
