Hood: Outlaws & Legends
The next class for Hood: Outlaws & Legends is the hunter and this is the one that seems to have Hood crossover into other games we have loved
The Hunter is out there now for Hood: Outlaws & Legends as the second class in the game is given the breakdown and gameplay to offer up. Last week we had the Ranger that was lined to Robin and now it looks like Sumo Newcastle is linking the Hunter to Marianne. That and a class that feels like it is bringing an assassin style class into Hood. Almost to the point that it feels like it is a bit of a crossover with the other major title out there that uses assassins. You know which one we are talking about, but if not you will see it in the following gameplay we have here to share today.
This new class in Hood does offer up a few differences and mechanics we can use to take advantage of it all. It looks like there are the usual crossbow sniping and the neck stabbing to kill to take everyone down fast. The Hunter also looks to have the ability to throw out smoke grenades to obscure visibility for not only active perception but also the marking of characters in the match. Then they also have the ability to use magic to go invisible from everyone to use stealth to the max here. This is the first explanation of magic in this Robin Hood version, and I have a feeling we will see a whole lot more given the other classes.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends — The Hunter
Hood: Outlaws & Legends, the multiplayer PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home Interactive, introduces in-depth gameplay of one of the four playable classes available at launch. Matchmaking in opposing teams of four, choose your character based on your preferred playstyle, or what best fits your team’s strategy. In this game where cooperation is key, your team’s composition can suit a stealthy long-range approach, a brutal close combat heist, or a balanced band of Outlaws prepared for anything. Today, join game director Andrew Willans once again for the second character gameplay trailer to discover The Hunter!
Become the ultimate silent terror
The Hunter is elusive and mysterious, with her quick takedowns, invisibility magic, and smoke grenades making her a terror in infiltration and assassination. Her main weapon is a modified arm-mounted crossbow, which can load up to three bolts at once to fire a deadly burst, giving her incredible lethality at close and mid-range.
The Hunter’s ultimate ability is the Shroud, covering her with a near-invisible sheen and making her completely undetectable by guards. This grants her unique advantages in infiltration, letting her reach the treasure vault with ease, or assassinating the enemy backlines with terrifying efficiency. When it comes to supporting her band of outlaws, the Hunter’s smoke grenades can be used to prevent enemies from tagging teammates or to cover sightlines for a tactical advantage.
