Hood: Outlaws & Legends is an online heist game where two teams of four compete for the same treasure. Each team must infiltrate an area using stealth and other tactics while avoiding the other team and additional enemy AI. Meanwhile, the treasure is guarded by the Sheriff—who can instant kill anyone—and a squad of elite knights. If at any point you are detected, the rival team learns your exact location. Who will steal the treasure first?

Teamwork is required to infiltrate each map. Every teammate is assigned a role, and each player must adhere to that playstyle. If all goes as planned, you’ll pull off some nail-biting heists. But first: which character and class will you choose?
