It’s always an exciting moment when you finally get to reveal the game you’ve been working on behind closed doors for so long. Hood: Outlaws and Legends is a multiplayer PvPvE heist game, coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox One in 2021.
With Hood: Outlaws and Legends, our aim was to create a dark and brutal re-imagining of the Robin Hood legend, pitting myth and superstition against man-made power and corruption.
The team here in Newcastle are all passionate gamers, and over the past 16 months we believe we have created a new and fresh twist on the PvPvE genre.
Blood will be spilled. Riches will be stolen. Legends will be reborn.
Faced with a merciless, unchecked state, rebels, and rogues from every corner battle to claim their place among legends. To win influence with an oppressed people, rival gangs now 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.
Outplay opponents in intense PvPvE multiplayer heists in a violent medieval world
Two teams of players compete to execute the perfect heist, in environments patrolled by deadly AI guards. Utilize the unique skills and mystical abilities of each character, moving in stealth to steal treasures unseen or dominating through loud and brutal combat.
