But it Sherwood help if it had more players
Republished on Wednesday 30th March 2022: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of April 2022's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. What if a classic Assassin’s Creed quest was the basis for a competitive multiplayer game? Hood: Outlaws &...
Plus or minus?
No, we can't believe that it's already April either, but at least the dawning of a new month gives us an excuse to complain about PlayStation Plus! Seriously though, snark aside, the initial reaction to April's PS Plus games line-up hasn't been great. While the selection does boast a couple of relatively highly rated PS4 titles —...
Steal from the Mountain
Living up to the promise made by developer Sumo Digital in the lead up to launch, the first post-launch content addition for Hood: Outlaws & Legends adds a new map to the online experience for free. Simply titled Mountain, it's available now. This is just the first in a seemingly long line of free updates planned for the...
Says there's a "high player count"
Our biggest criticism of Hood: Outlaws & Legends in our review was how long it can take to get into a match. In our appraisal, we suggested that the prolonged matchmaking periods – which can run up to 10 minutes in our experience – could be down to a lack of players, but game director Andrew Willans has...
Learn about all the classes and their combat options
The jury is still somewhat out on Hood: Outlaws & Legends, but the premise is unquestionably fascinating. This commentated trailer, which shows off the title’s classes, also introduces more about the overall gameplay loop – and it’s effectively an online competitive stealth game. Imagine...
Free content, Year 1 Pass detailed
Hood: Outlaws & Legends is sneaking up on its PlayStation 5 and PS4 release date of 10th May 2021, which means it's time for developer Sumo Digital to detail what sort of content you can expect to play beyond the base package. A large slate of free content is planned for the medieval PvPvE experience, which in...
Medievil multiplayer title out next month
Huh, Hood: Outlaws & Legends may well be one to keep your eye on as we near its release next month on PlayStation hardware. That is if the latest gameplay trailer is anything to go by, which gives a fantastic overview of what to expect from the medieval multiplayer experience. Out on 10th May 2021 for...
You know what, Hood: Outlaws & Legends is looking alright. It's a PvPvE multiplayer game in which two teams of four compete to steal heavily guarded treasure, with a loose Robin Hood theme. In this latest gameplay trailer, one of the developers talks us through the Ranger class, and the game is looking pretty solid. As you'd...
Pre-order for three days of early access
Hood: Outlaws & Legends really does look like a cross between Assassin's Creed Valhalla and For Honor in this release date reveal trailer, confirming the title will launch on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on 10th May 2021. The game tasks two teams of four with sneaking into all manner of medie
Hood: Outlaws & Legends was one of the grittier games shown during Sony's latest State of Play broadcast. The game's a four-on-four multiplayer action title, in which the two teams compete to pull off a dangerous heist. You have to work together in order to infiltrate a location guarded by computer-controlled enemies, all while your...
