Nacon has released an extensive gameplay video of its upcoming co-op action-adventure game Gangs of Sherwood, inspired by the adventures of the most iconic man in tights, Robin Hood.
The video showcases two chapters of the game, '"The Fall of Locksley" and "Edwinstowe," specifically focusing on Robin and Tuck. While Robin is fast and mobile, kiting enemies with deadly long-range attacks, Tuck is a brawler, using a massive sledgehammer and staying in the thick of things.
You can watch it below.
Gangs of Sherwood is coming on October 19, 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy a previous trailer showcased at the latest Nacon Connect and another video, in which the creators talk about the setting, characters, and more.
While Gangs of Sherwood includes familiar characters from the legends and folklore behind Robin Hood, its setting is much less familiar, as it's a much more technologically advanced world compared to the middle ages we're used to. Here's how Nacon describes the game.
"Play as Robin, Marian, Friar Tuck or Little John, four heroes with unique, fully customizable gameplay styles, and set out in search of riches to plunder so you can give them to the poor. From Sherwood Forest to the Sheriff's flying castle, the way forward is blocked by hordes of enemies. Combine the different heroes' combat styles to foil the tyrant's plans and fight performance-enhanced soldiers, formidable war machines and terrifying bosses that you meet as you advance."
