Sumo Digital and Focus Home Interactive are beginning to tease more of Hood: Outlaws and Legends, with four character trailers presenting the four main classes.
Granted, if you've read Robin Hood, you should be somewhat familiar with some of the characters, although it's safe to expect creative detours due to the breadth of the popular tale.
First up is friar Tooke, the Mystic of Greenwood, who gets tangled up in a bonafide cancel session of one of his mentors. Much like in modern times, the mentor's innocence was more like a sophisticated point of view than actual defence, so torture went on until his heart gave way.
Tooke, on the other hand, jumped the proverbial boat and went into exile, or more precisely to Greenwood.
John Nailor, The Brawler, appears to be the muscle of the merry bunch. Having been raised in Middleton Smithy, little John hits harder than a Cyberpunk 2077 delay, immediately instilling a great appreciation of irony into those on the receiving end.
Marianne, The Hunter, sounds like a runaway grandmother of Lara Croft, and her title of the heiress of the Fitzwalter estate would normally be in line with that. Unfortunately, murder, theft and senseless killing left her without family, estate and friends. You guessed it - Greenwood.
Last but not least is his highness Robin Hood himself, The Ranger, leader of the outlaws who due to legal reasons had to sneak into the title. Well, you could argue this is proof of his abilities, sure.
As for the actual gameplay in Hood: Outlaws and Legends, the def described it in a few short points on Steam :
- Outplay opponents in intense PvPvE multiplayer heists
- Experience a violent medieval world where ancient mysticism competes with man-made power and corruption
- Claim your loot and invest in perks, weapons and bold new looks
- Post launch support with new maps, characters, game modes and events
