Hood: Outlaws and Legends Shows Off Its Take on Robin Hood
Hood: Legends and Outlaws has shown off its Ranger class – its take on Robin Hood – exclusively with IGN.
In a gameplay overview during IGN Fan Fest, game director Andrew Willans introduced the Ranger, who specialises in fighting at distance, and in stealth.
Aside from offering huge-damage headshots, the Ranger’s bow can dislodge climbing ropes for party members, they come with a flash bomb item, and the class is the only one who can tag enemies for the rest of the team. The Ranger’s Ultimate is Farsight, a sticky, explosive incendiary arrow – but they can only evade melee attacks, rather than block them. Check out the video below:
Hood: Outlaws and Legends is set to be released for PS5, Xbox Series X and Series S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 10. We recently spoke to Willans about exactly how the game will work across a full round, and came away thinking it sounded like a co-op Ocean’s Eleven Merry Men simulator.
