Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a PvPvE heist game from developer Sumo Newcastle, is out this week. If you’re looking to try out a game loosely based on the legend of Robin Hood, you’ll be able to do so first on PC and a few hours later on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The game’s official Twitter account has revealed that players can try their hand at robbing from the rich and giving some of their loot to the poor–or all of it if you’re feeling very charitable–from these times:

When it launches, Hood: Outlaws & Legends will pit two teams of thieves against each other in a race to claim the heavily-guarded treasure. Four playable characters will make up each team, loosely inspired by Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Little John, and Friar Tuck: the Ranger, the Hunter, the Brawler, and the Mystic.
The game also has a few interesting ideas for its PS5 release, as the developers have used the adaptive triggers on the DualSense controller to accurately recreate the feeling of drawing an arrow with a bow or feeling when a character is fatigued when they engage in melee combat by making it harder to swing their weapon.
For a quick preview on what to expect from the game, there’s a deep dive preview video of Hood: Outlaws & Legends that not only reveals more of its multiplayer heist action, it’s also narrated by Hitman and Returnal voice actress Jane Perry.
