Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a new PvP game from Focus Home Interactive (World War Z) based on (you guessed it) Robin Hood. Disney, Warner Bros., and many others had their own interpretations of the famous outlaw that robbed to rich to feed the poor. Focus Home, along with developer Sumo Studios (one of its locations from Nottingham, aptly), released a trailer that shows a very dark twist from a traditionally lighthearted tale.

The merry men in this trailer are portrayed as stealth assassins, taking down Prince John’s men one by one, often with brutal, bloody results. This will no doubt earn an “M” rating. But just when they were about to take a valuable treasure chest, it seems like another faction is doing the same thing. Another twist: the leaders of both of these factions are faceless. What does this mean? Will you create your own character, including gender (since Robin Hood is historically male)? Will this be a fight among the factions to see who is going to emerge as the Robin Hood, since their leaders are faceless? It’s a PvP game so it looks like there will be a civil war, and how is Prince John going to factor in on this?

Hood: Outlaws & Legends will give you an opportunity to steal gold and treasure, and try to earn the people’s trust. Some of the gameplay is reminiscent of Assassin’s Creed, or do you, as a player, prefer an open war against other factions since it is a PvP game?

Hood: Outlaws & Legends will be out on 2021 for all Xbox and PS systems, and Steam. No word yet on the Switch.
