Focus Home Interactive today unveiled eight minutes of commented gameplay from Sumo Digital’s Hood: Outlaws and Legends, coming to consoles and PC on May 10. You can watch the new video using the player below.
The video for Hood: Outlaws and Legends, the new multiplayer PvPvE heist game, shows the game’s unique medieval heists. Matchmaking in opposing teams of four, choose your character based on your preferred playstyle, or what best fits your team’s strategy.
Whether your gang prioritizes a stealthy long-range approach, brutal close combat or a combination of both, cooperation will be key for victory. Check out the video for a deeper look into how the different characters play out and combine during critical stages of a match.
Stealth is your best way of gathering enough information about enemy positions, the vault location and map layout to plan and execute your heist. Beware! If any enemy spots you, your character becomes outlined in red, revealing your position to the opposing team and the rest of the guards.
Charging in mindlessly can be fatal, unless creating a diversion was your plan all along. Use stealth to move around undetected, distract or assassinate guards, steal keys, retrieve treasures and, most importantly, choose when and where your team enters open combat.
In the Hood: Outlaws and Legends gameplay, discover how each character can be customized with specific perks to emphasize certain playstyles. For instance, you can equip the Ranger with special melee and burst damage perks to make your way to high ground and cover your team from afar.
Although known for his support abilities, you can equip the Mystic with a fast movement perk, slipping past guards to steal keys and silently unlock doors for your team.
