Focus Home Interactive has announced Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a 4v4 multiplayer heist game for Xbox Series X that blends combat, stealth and strategy within a reimagined version of Robin Hood lore. Your task is to steal treasures from 'The State', the game's oppressive government, and presumably give them to the poor. Or not.

Assembling your merry band of outlaws, two teams of four will compete to carry out the same heist, which involves evading or quietly dispatching AI enemy guards en route to liberating a treasure chest from a State stronghold. The game will feature a variety of mechanics that can help teammates and hinder rival thieves.

"Our game world is realistic, with believable interactions and consequences," says Game Director Andrew Willans on the PS Blog. "Treasure chests are heavy and must be carried. Ammo is limited to what you can carry, salvage, or recover from your fallen enemies. Noise attracts attention, both from the AI guards and rival players. Combat can be brutal and deadly, so using stealth can often be the optimal approach."

Each outlaw has their own playstyle, from ranged specialists to combat-focused classes, melee brawlers, and others, so you'll be able to experiment with team builds and combinations of skills. "This is a heist after all, and no heist would be complete without assembling the gang to discuss the plan before cracking the vault and making good on your getaway!," Willans adds.

With its own retelling of a legend in a "gritty, brutal" version of Dark Ages Britain, Hood: Outlaws & Legends will be heading to Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2021. Check out the debut trailer below.
