Robin Hood and his Merry Men are back in a video game; however, rather than being too merry, Focus Home Interactive infuses a gritty nature and focuses on the brutality of medieval times in Hood: Outlaws and Legends.

On December 10th, at The Game Awards, Focus Home Interactive dropped the release date as well as gave us a sneak peek of the gameplay in Hood: Outlaws and Legends.

Here’s everything we know so far about Hood: Outlaws and Legends:

Release Date

Hood: Outlaws and Legends will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S and X, and PC on May 10th, 2021. People who have pre-ordered the game will be able to access the game three days before the official launch date.

Trailer

The most recent trailer of Hood: Outlaws and Legends, which was revealed at The Game Awards on December 10th, outlines the PvPvE concept of the game, which sees you challenge other players as well as AI enemies.

Gameplay

Here’s what Focus Home has to tell us about the world of the game, courtesy of the game’s official site:

In a violent, medieval world, outplay rival gangs in intense PvPvE multiplayer heists. Moving in stealth to steal treasures unseen or dominating through loud and brutal combat, only the best will escape with hard-earned riches.

An oppressed kingdom strangled by the iron fist of a dictator cries out for help. You must answer the call, take up arms, and fight for the people in intense, tactical team-based action. Play as one of the legendary figures of yore in nail-biting heists where you must infiltrate, locate, and extract priceless treasure guarded by a powerful military force.

Hood: Outlaws and Legends may not have the same do-gooder setting as the tales of Robin Hood that we’re used to, however, we do get to play as some of the familiar characters from the story, like Friar Tuck and Maid Marian. In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Studio Head of Sumo Newcastle Owen O’Brien outlined what players can expect from each of the playable heroes. Each has a distinct combat type:

Hood is of course the Ranger skilled at ranged combat. He can hide in the shadows or perch at a high window and support the team from a distance. He can tag targets and remove threats with his longbow. His explosive arrow ability can be devastating to tightly packed groups, and can even down the dreaded Sheriff – for a while at least.

Little John has become John Nailer, a Brawler, close combat specialist, and general tank. His deadly hammer can kill with a single blow, while his Wrath ability turns him into an unstoppable melee powerhouse with endless stamina. If your team is trapped and all seems lost, he is the only outlaw strong enough to raise the portcullis and open up an escape route for the team.

Friar Tuck has been morphed into Tooke – a scarred ex-State inquisitor. His flail makes him strong at close and mid-range combat, while his mystical abilities can heal and support his team, revealing the position of nearby enemies.

Maid Marion moved from being a damsel in distress to a warrior and leader in her own right, which is indeed how some of the legends already depicted her. Her burst-fire crossbow and assassination skills terrorize the enemy, while her smoke grenades and invisibility ability bring a stealthy advantage to any heist.

Get ready to jump into the brutal medieval action on May 10th!
