Hood: Outlaws and Legends release confirmed for May 2021

Focus Home Interactive and Sumo Digital have confirmed that Hood: Outlaws and Legends will be released in May 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. There are two release dates to be aware of though. If you pre-order Hood: Outlaws & Legends the release date will be May 7th, 2021. The general release date will be May 10th, 2021. The game was first revealed in August during the PS5 reveal event.

In Hood: Outlaws and Legends two teams of four, both outlaw gangs, compete against each other to find and steal treasures. Both teams also have to contend with the AI soldiers that are guarding the treasures. There are different approaches from going in face on or using stealth techniques to avoid detection and triggering the alarms. Along with the standard edition there is also a Year One edition of Hood: Outlaws and Legends. This version of the game will give access to three battle passes following the first free season.

Hood: Outlaws and Legends will make use of the DualSense controllers improve haptic feedback, and given the setting, plenty of emphasis will be put on how drawing back on a bow and arrow will feel compared to a DualShock 4. However, the developers have said, “we’ll have more details to share later on how the game will be optimised for each platform,” and that will include plenty of optimisations for Xbox Series X.
