Overview

A Hideout is a personal space for players to hang out and socialize in. Players will be able to customize their hideout in a number of ways and can have more than one. The first phase of Hideouts consisted of Mom's Basement, Mystic Sanctum, Industrial Cave and Sci-fi Moonbase. In September 2011, the Penthouse hideout was added with two versions available: the Loft Penthouse and the Luxury Penthouse.

Categories

There are currently 5 categories (Basement, Moon, etc) of hideouts being planned. Each type will have a number of several themed hideout locations that a player will be able to select from.

Basement

Cave Lair

Sanctum

Moon Base

Penthouse

Convenience

At launch, hideouts will have access to the tailor and the Crime Computer. To access the tailor all you need to do is move towards the tailor section of the hideout and interact. Each hideout will have a location for the tailor and crime computer that is fitting to the setting:

  • Tailors: Stand near the weapon racks or laundry (Mom’s Basement)
  • Crime Computer: Near the computer in your hideout.

Additional conveniences will be added later, such as power trainers and account wide storage.

Shared Account Bank

Primary Article: Shared Account Bank
When purchasing a hideout, you are granted 20 shared bank slots. They can be accessed in the same area as the crime computer.

Customization

Inside your hideout you will be able to make changes to your hideout’s look and feel. Customization for hideouts focuses on theme more than specific changes. You can change walls, flooring, lighting and a social area for example, but changing an individual picture on the walls is not possible.

Customization options are also currently only usable within the same category. So a chair from the Sci-Fi Moon base cannot be used in the Mystic Sanctum. However, the cauldron in the Alchemist Sanctum can be used in the Mystic Sanctum or any other Sanctum category hideout.

When you make it to your hideout the hideout UI will change to show what options are available to you. There are 3 elements of the Hideout UI that you may use inside your hideout:

  • Settings: Settings are the overall themed hideouts. You can always use these to switch back to the default setting for any hideout.
  • Options: Options are the areas that can be changed within the hideout. More options will be available depending on what hideouts you have. Think of these as sections like Walls, lights and social areas.
  • Choices: These are the choices for the Options. If you selected Options for the walls in Mom’s Basement you will see 3 choices for walls. Selecting these choices will change the look of the hideout.
