Game studio Sumo Digital and publisher Focus Home Interactive has released an in-depth commented gameplay video of video game Hood: Outlaws and Legends.
Players can matchmake in opposing teams of four and choose their favorite character based on their preferred playstyle or what best fits for the team strategy. It would either be prioritizing on stealth long range approach, brutal close combat or a combination of both, but the important key is cooperation. The official commented gameplay video is a deeper look into how the different characters play out and combine during critical stages of a match.
Stealth in service of action
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. Four Outlaws with unique complementary playstyles.
In this Commented Gameplay video, 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.
We are all Outlaws… but some of us will become Legends.
Faced with a merciless, unchecked state, rebels and rogues battle to claim their place among legends. To win influence with an oppressed people, rival gangs compete in daring heists to hit the wealthy where it hurts. Folk hero or gold-hungry outlaw, only the best will escape with hard-earned riches.
