Funnily enough, it wasn't that long ago we saw a co-op multiplayer game based on the tale of Robin Hood. Called Hood: Outlaws & Legends, it was a team-based competitive game about grabbing treasure before the other teams. This game, Gangs of Sherwood, is more of an action adventure that has you and up to three friends battling the Sheriff of Nottingham's forces.

Publisher Nacon has released the first gameplay footage, which shows off each of the four playable characters: Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck, and Maid Marian. As you'd expect, each of them have their own weapons and skills that complement each other as you engage with enemies. There's a more fantastical edge to this portrayal of the legend, with the characters shooting beams between flashy combos and some larger-than-life bosses to fight.

Gangs of Sherwood is heading to PS5 this Fall.
