Focus Home Interactive has released a gameplay overview trailer for its upcoming multiplayer PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital, Hood: Outlaws & Legends. Matchmaking in opposing teams of four, players will choose a character based on their preferred playstyle, or what best fits their team’s strategy.
In Hood: Outlaws & Legends, your team’s composition can suit a stealthy long-range approach, a brutal close combat heist or a balanced band of Outlaws prepared for anything.
As the press release reads, every game will pit you and your friends against a rival group of four other players who are also aiming to steal the treasure. You and your team must work together to select your band of complementary outlaws, each with unique abilities to offer, before infiltrating vast, medieval strongholds. Players will have to outsmart the opposing team and villainous State to find, steal, and return the riches unfairly taken from the people.
Between heists, players can also visit the hideout to spend some of their stolen fortune. Giving money back to the people will increase the range of items available to you in the shops, while keeping it for yourself lets you directly purchase them. You can improve, alter and refine your characters’ skills with a range of perks. Moreover, you can personalize your heroes with a range of new weapons and costumes.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends will release on May 10th.
