Gangs of Sherwood Characters

Today publisher Nacon released a new video dedicated to Gangs of Sherwood, the upcoming co-op action-adventure game inspired by the adventures of the most iconic man in tights, Robin Hood.

The video stars Game Director Andrea Di Stefano and Art Director Michael Defroyennes, as they explain the setting of the game and its characters, who include familiar faces from the legends and folklore behind Robin Hood. 

The game's setting is much less familiar, as it's much more technologically advanced compared to the middle ages we're used to. 

You can watch the video below. If you want to see more gameplay, you can also check out a previous trailer from the latest Nacon Connect

Gangs of Sherwood is coming this fall for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Strore.

The accompanying press release also includes a comment from Di Stefano. 

The new technology was made possible by the Lionheart, a unique stone brought back from the Crusades, which can be used to transform metal and give it magical properties. This swift technological progress has led to a revolution in transportation and the way the war unfolds. In our case, it is having a big impact on combat, on the way the characters interact with enemies and the power they can unleash, which results in explosive and spectacular battles.

 We then hear more from Defroyennes.

For example, we start in the village of Locksley, which is under siege, and there will be other iconic places, of course, such as Sherwood Forest and the city of Nottingham. We also wanted to highlight the bleak aspect of the various regions to show how the world is war-torn and the how pollution from technology has impacted the environment.
