Hood: Outlaws and Legends Revealed at Today’s State of Play
Hood: Outlaws and Legends is an upcoming PvPvE multiplayer game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home Interactive.
Today’s State of Play was full of big announcements from some of Sony’s 3rd-party partners. Included in the slate was a new game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home Interactive called Hood: Outlaws and Legends. While details are still relatively scarce, the reveal trailer showed off some of the game in action. In this early look, the game looks like it could be quite fun if you have a consistent group to play with. Give it a watch below.
Hood: Outlaws and Legends is described as a “gritty reimaging of the Robin Hood legend.” The game sees two teams of four pitted up against each other in a race to commit a gigantic heist. Not only do you have to compete with the rival gang, but you’ll also find yourself coming up against AI guards.
Again, we don’t know a ton about the game. However, in a write up on the PlayStation Blog, the team talked about there being several different characters for players to inhabit. So, careful planning of who and how you’re going to steal that treasure is important.
Of course, without more substantive gameplay to go off of, it’s hard to know exactly what Hood is going to be. That said, this early trailer definitely has me intrigued to know more. This is, of course, purely speculation, but given that Sumo is based in the UK, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear more during Gamescom Online later this month.
Hood: Outlaws and Legends is set to launch on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X at some point in 2021.
