Rob banks, Restaurants and Expensive Cars in Thief Simulator 2
The original Thief Simulator basically let you become one of the Wet Bandits: roaming around neighborhoods in your vehicle, looking out the houses you were going to steal it, and then battling with their security measures as you snuck in and robbed everything of value. But just as Harry and Marv operated in Home Alone 2, Thief Simulator 2 will come with new types of locations to clean, including restaurants and banks, and also steal fancy cars.
Cheap cars at first, but you’ll later on expert enough to steal sports cars as you develop your thief, stripping them for parts and XP. This doesn’t seem to be a revolutionary sequel, but there will three “unique” situations in which to ply your sneaky trade, as indicated on the game’s Steam page. It’s glorious to see banks as a new type of building in there—surely the last challenge for any thief—and it will be exciting to be able to steal them in the modern-day. How will they resemble Thief’s bank or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s enormous cyber-bank?
Thief Simulator 2 will come out next year for PC (with console releases to follow in 2023). It’s not being made by the original studio, Noble Muffins, but by developer MrCiastku. Noble Muffins is also making American Theft 80s, which looks like Thief Sim if it was from the VHS. You’ll be pilfering VHS players and CRTs in that one. American Theft 80s will come out later this year.
