Gangs of Sherwood is a third-person, co-op action game that sees you take on a variety of missions, facing off against tough bosses and enemies.

Each hero has a different playstyle and you will need to combine their powers to perform devastating combos and attacks. As you complete missions you will improve your reputation and save lives, spending gold to upgrade your equipment.
