Celebrate Samhain in Season 1 of Hood: Outlaws & Legends, coming September 2nd

From Press Release:

PARIS — Aug. 19, 2021 — Hood: Outlaws & Legends, the co-op PvPvE heist game from Sumo Digital and Focus Home Interactive, has announced that Season 1: Samhain will launch on September 2 featuring a wealth of new content. The game’s newest trailer offers a sneak peek at what’s to come, including the winch mechanic rework, new maps for the recently introduced State Heist PvE mode, new cosmetics through the first Battle Pass, and the first free new post-launch Outlaw, Eidaa.

To kick off the season, Hood will welcome its first new Outlaw, Eidaa, free for all players. An amazing toe-to-toe fighter, Eidaa’s abilities, unique moveset and customizable perks make her a fearsome opponent anywhere on the battlefield. The update will also introduce a game-changing rework to the winch system, improving and upping the intensity of each match’s critical final phase. This new system will allow both teams to winch for the treasure chest, leading to a fairer, more balanced experience in which every step of the heist counts.

Hood’s first Battle Pass also arrives with Season 1, bringing a huge variety of cosmetics to unlock. The Battle Pass represents a new, separate progression system in which players earn experience to unlock exclusive cosmetics for all Outlaws, including Eidaa. All players can progress in the Battle Pass, which includes free items at certain tiers.

Since launch, Hood has evolved with a number of exciting updates driven by community feedback. Most recently, the game rolled out the fully PvE State Heist mode, in which teams test their skills against a much more aggressive State, with unique death and respawn mechanics.

Xbox players can try out Hood: Outlaws & Legends for free with Xbox Free Play Days — from August 19-23 — and purchase the game for up to 40% off for a limited time.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is out now on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC. You can also buy the game’s Year 1 Edition, which includes three Battle Passes to be released post-launch. For more on Hood, visit www.focus-home.com/en-us/games/hood-outlaws-legends.
