Game studio Sumo Digital and publisher Focus Home Interactive have released an in-depth gameplay video of video game Hood: Outlaws and Legends.
Players can match make-up in opposing teams of four and choose their favorite character based on their preferred play style or what best suits the team strategy. It would either prioritize a long range stealth approach, brutal close combat, or a combination of the two, but the main key is collaboration. The officially commented gameplay video is a deeper look at how the different characters play and combine during critical stages of a match.
Stealth at the service of action
Stealth is your best way to gather enough information about enemy positions, the location of the safe and the map layout to plan and execute your heist. Beware! If an enemy sees you, your character will be outlined in red, revealing your position to the other team and the rest of the guards. Thoughtful charging can be fatal unless creating a distraction has always been your plan. Use stealth to move around unnoticed, distract or kill guards, steal keys, retrieve treasure and, most importantly, choose when and where your team will engage in open combat. Celebrate Outlaws with unique complementary playstyles.
In this comment Gameplay video, discover how each character can be customized with specific benefits to emphasize certain playing styles. For example, you can equip the Ranger with special melee and burst damage perks to clear your way to high ground and cover your squad from afar. Although known for his support skills, you can equip the Mystic with a quick movement advantage, slip past guards to steal keys, and silently unlock doors for your team.
