Essential information about Gangs of Sherwood
During the last Crusades, King Richard of England and his army discovered a miraculous stone: the Lionheart. The stone was endowed with extraordinary properties, which helped the kingdom to undergo tremendous technological advancement. As the Lionheart was the source of immense prosperity and power, it obviously became the subject of terrible greed. The Sheriff of Nottingham eventually seized it, so he could assert his authority and oppress the English people.
To rebel against this tyranny, a resistance movement forms to defeat the sheriff's armies and liberate the people from his merciless rule. Four iconic heroes from the legend of Robin Hood lead this rebellion, and in Gangs of Sherwood you can play as Maid Marian, the sheriff's daughter and expert assassin; Friar Tuck, a monk and healer; Little John, a warrior with a steel fist; and, of course, the famous archer Robin of Locksley.
All the characters have their own gameplay styles as well as a wide range of unique and customizable abilities. As you progress, you unlock new combos and fragments, which allow you to pull off increasingly powerful and spectacular combos. Although Gangs of Sherwood can be played solo from start to finish, it has been primarily designed as a co-op multiplayer experience for up to four players. Tailor your heroes to suit your fighting style and take into account your team-mates' strengths, so you can create devastating synergies and triumph over the Sheriff of Nottingham's armies!
