Focus Home Interactive have released a new gameplay trailer for Hood: Outlaws & Legends, focused on The Hunter class.
As previously reported, the game is a PvPvE multiplayer game. Set in a dark fantasy medieval world that has become corrupt and cruel, thieves and rogues have come to claim riches, and win favor among the people.
Two teams must attempt to outwit AI guards, and each other. Each character has their own skills and abilities, letting them sneak unseen, or fight it out in combat; some through magic.
The press release (via email) explains that the Hunter class focuses on being even more stealthy than other classes; with access to invisibilty magic, quick takedowns, and smoke grenades. The latter prevents not only AI enemies from finding your allies, but the opposing team from tagging your teammates.
In close and mid-range, the Hunter can also use an arm-mounted crossbow to shoot up to three bolts at once. Her ultimate skill is the Shoud, rending her nigh-invisible.
You can find the Hunter gameplay trailer below.
This is the second of the four class videos. You can find our coverage on the Ranger here.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
We are all Outlaws… but some of us will become Legends.

Folk hero or gold-hungry outlaw, only the best will escape with hard-earned riches.

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.
