Hood: Outlaws and Legends, the multiplayer PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital, is coming to last and new-gen consoles and PC during spring 2021.

Announced last night during The Game Awards 2020, in Hood: Outlaws and Legends, your goal is to steal treasure from an oppressive government in a dark and violent medieval world.

Every game starts with two teams of four players, fighting each other and the State to find, steal, and return the riches unfairly taken from the people. There are four distinct characters with “thousands of variations” which will provide endless combinations and playstyles.

In the game, every action has deadly consequences and life can be lost quickly but you will earn rewards and evolve your characters to help things along.

Here’s more:

Faced with a merciless, unchecked state, rebels and rogues battle to claim their place among legends. To win influence with an oppressed people, rival gangs compete in daring heists to hit the wealthy where it hurts. Folk hero or gold-hungry outlaw, only the best will escape with hard-earned riches.

Two teams of four players compete to execute the perfect heist, in medieval environments patrolled by deadly AI guards. With the unique skills and mystical abilities of each character, moving in stealth to steal treasures unseen or dominating through loud and brutal combat.


  • Outplay opponents in intense PvPvE multiplayer heists
  • Experience a violent medieval world where ancient mysticism competes with man-made power and corruption
  • Claim your loot and invest in perks, weapons, and bold new looks
