Hood: Outlaws & Legends: The Brawler slams into action with new character gameplay trailer!
Hood: Outlaws and Legends, the multiplayer PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home interactive, has launched the third entry in a series of in-depth gameplay trailers for each of the four playable classes available at launch. Matchmaking in opposing teams of four, choose your character based on your preferred playstyle, or what best fits your team’s strategy. In this game where cooperation is key, your team’s composition can suit a stealthy long-range approach, a brutal close combat heist or a balanced band of Outlaws prepared for anything. Today’s trailer introduces The Brawler - join game director Andrew Willans in the Character gameplay trailer! This is the third of a 4-episode series of gameplay trailers covering each of the four classes, so get ready for the fourth and final video next week!
Dominate your foes with brute force
The Brawler is a man who exchanged his blacksmith’s hammer for a sledgehammer, vowing to battle against the corruption that plagues his country. A master of melee combat, the Brawler excels at holding defensive lines, creating new paths for allies, and of course, team fights. His powerful weapon is capable of wide sweeps to clear groups of enemies, overhead attacks to instant-kill unarmored targets, and a sprint attack which knocks nearby targets off their feet.
The Brawler can also lift open portcullises for allies when areas have gone under lockdown - perfect for making an escape from alerted guards, or to further punish the enemy team for getting caught. Explosive grenades bring even more destruction, capable of taking out a group of elite knights, eliminating a sniper hiding in a crow’s nest, or putting the Sheriff down. His Ultimate Ability, Wrath, calls on the Brawler’s bestial fury to push his physical strengths to their limits, gaining increased durability and infinite stamina to relentlessly chase and defeat targets.
