Hood: Outlaws and Legends, the new co-op PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home interactive, has released a new in-depth gameplay commentary video breaking down the wide array of choices you’ll have available as you work within teams of four to pull of intense medieval heists. Whether your squad takes a stealthy long-range approach, goes all-in for close-quarters combat, or a combination of both, cooperation will be key for victory — here’s a unique look at how those decisions and actions can play out throughout a match.
Stealth is your best way to gather information about enemy positions, the vault location and map layout to plan and execute your heist. Move around undetected, distract or assassinate guards, steal keys, retrieve treasures and, most importantly, choose when and where your team enters open combat. But beware! If an 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.
Each character can be customized with specific perks to emphasize different playstyles. Rangers can equip special melee and burst damage perks to reach the high ground and provide cover for the team from afar. Even the Mystic, typically a support hero, can pick a fast movement perk to slip past guards, steal keys and silently unlock doors for your team.
