This PvPvE title is hugely reminiscent of Assassin’s Creed franchise because of the way it looks. Hooded figures attacking from the shadows in a medieval title? It is all too familiar. However, there is more to the game than that.

Hood: Outlaws and Legends pits two teams of outlaws on a race against each other in order to find a coveted treasure. Each team consists of four players. Furthermore, players in the game are divided into four classes based on their combat styles. The Ranger, as the name suggests, is good with arrows and ranged weapons.

Next up is the Brawler, which is basically a medieval version of the tank class of MMORPG titles. The Mystic is obviously the mage, and the Hunter is a close-quarters combat specialist.
