Hood: Outlaws & Legends With Decent Steam Debut

Hood: Outlaws & Legends recorded a fairly successful debut on Steam. Technical issues lowered user ratings, but the game achieved good activity scores.

  • 69% of user reviews on Steam are positive;
  • Launch day activity record on Steam is 11,500 players;
  • Twitch viewership record is 62,000.

Yesterday marked the launch of Hood: Outlaws & Legends. A lot of people were waiting for the game, which is best reflected by the fact that its pre-orders were the second biggest bestseller on Steam last week. We thought it was worth checking out how the project's debut went.

At the time of writing this message, the game has over 1.4 thousand user ratings on Steam and 69% of them are positive. This categorizes the game's reception as "mixed," but it's worth remembering that only one percent is missing for the Steam system to consider Hood: Outlaws & Legends a good received positively. Negative reviews complain mainly about technical issues, such as problems with connection or resetting options in the menu, so some patches should fix the situation.

Despite the problems, the game enjoys considerable popularity. Yesterday, at the hottest moment of the launch day, Hood: Outlaws & Legends was played by 11,536 people on Steam. New games usually improve their debut day activity scores on the first weekend after release, so we expect the game to boast a higher record soon. It is worth remembering that the PC version of the project is also available on Epic Games Store, so the above figures do not fully reflect the size of the game's community.

The title also generated a lot of interest on Twitch. At the peak of the launch day, broadcasts of the game in this service followed more than 62 thousand viewers.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends was released yesterday, not only on PC, but also on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
