Sumo Digital has released our latest look at Hood: Outlaws & Legends, and this time, we are given an in-depth look at the Ranger class! This is the first in a series of videos showcasing each of the four playable classes available at launch. Check out the Hood: Outlaws & Legends Ranger gameplay showcase below.
Snipe and scout from the shadows
The Ranger represents a twist on the most well-known figure of the folk hero legend: Robin Hood. Specialised in taking down foes from a distance, the Ranger is a master of the longbow. From covering key areas of the map to pulling off game-winning headshots, the Ranger can turn the tides of battle with deadly efficiency.
Carrying out the perfect heist can require pulling off every trick in the book. Shoot down climbing ropes to allow your teammates to scale castle walls, use your unique gear to blind foes in a flash, use your special ability to tag enemies longer and help your team spot State soldiers and opposing players, or fire off special explosive arrows to unleash destruction in a wide area.
More info from the press release:
A master of the longbow, the Ranger specializes in scouting key areas of the map from the shadows and sniping foes from a distance with game-winning headshots. Carrying out the perfect heist often means using every trick in the book: deploy ropes to help your team scale castle walls, tag or blind enemies to create opportunities, and rain down explosive arrows to unleash total destruction in a wide area. In a game where cooperation is key, the stealthy Ranger is just one strategy as you work with your team to plan and execute your victory.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends will be released this May 10, though those who pre-order the game can exclusive early access on May 7, and will also get the “Forest Lords” pack for free, which features unique outfits and weapon skins for your characters.
The PvPvE heist game will rob players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
