In Hood: Outlaws & Legends, players will have to compete against a rival team in order to succeed in stealing treasure, Robin Hood-style. Sumo and Focus Home provided a summary of the game, which also promises brutal combat, deadly AI guards, dynamic team play, and unique skills to master:

Faced with a merciless, unchecked state, rebels and rogues from every corner battle to claim their place among legends. To win influence with an oppressed people, rival gangs now 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.

Gather your team of outlaws and attempt to steal treasure from an oppressive government in a dark and violent, medieval world.

Two teams of players compete to execute the perfect heist, in environments patrolled by deadly AI guards. Utilise the unique skills and mystical abilities of each character, moving in stealth to steal treasures unseen or dominating through loud and brutal combat. Blood will be spilled. Riches will be stolen. Legends will be reborn.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends launches sometime in 2021. Post-launch, more maps, characters, game modes, and events will be developed.
