Focus Home Interactive and developer Sumo Digital have released the first playable character gameplay trailer for their upcoming PvPvE heist game Hood: Outlaws and Legends. This first of four character gameplay trailers focuses on the Ranger, a character based on the most well known son of Nottingham, Robin Hood. Join game director Andrew Willans in the new trailer below and watch the Ranger at work…
Just like Robin Hood, the Ranger is a master of the longbow and his archery skills allow him to take down enemies from a distance. Want someone to cover a key area of the map or pull off a long range head shot to win the game then the Ranger is your guy.
As well as being used to fire regular arrows, the Ranger’s bow can also be used to deliver special explosive arrows that can stick to enemies. Besides being used as a weapon, the Ranger can use his bow to shoot down climbing ropes against walls allowing a much quieter access point to castles and structures than the normal heavily guarded main gate.
Rangers have a special ability called Scout, this allows them to tag enemies for longer and help spot soldiers and opposing players. Should this character need to make a rapid escape he can use a unique gear piece to create a disorientating flash.
Hood: Outlaws and Legends is available to pre-order now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. Pre-ordering will give early access to the game from 7th may plus the Forest Lords cosmetic pack which includes a skin and weapon for each character.
