The first season of Hood: Outlaws & Legends has arrived and brings with it a new character and three new co-op maps. It also makes adjustments to the game’s winch system and marks the release of the game’s battle pass, developer Sumo Digital has revealed.

Available now on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, Season 1 is dubbed Samhain, though it’s not exactly clear how it actually ties in with the Gaelic festival. 

Regardless, the new character is Eidaa, The Sellsword. She’s a nimble and aggressive, though very susceptible to damage. A hybrid outlaw, Eidaa can both “dodge and parry,” and her tar bomb slows enemies while dealing DPS in an area of effect. She also operates in a support capacity as her trait restocks gearboxes, and her ult is a magical shield. 

The winch system now “tracks the progress of both outlaw teams separately … now your team’s progress will be shown alongside the that of the enemy team’s…”

The co-op maps are for Hood’s PvE mode, State Heist. They include three new locales called Mountain, Coastal, and Marshland. Mountain is an overcast, dreary-looking map, while Coastal is rainy and dark. Marshland is adequately muddy. 

The new character, maps, and winch update are free to all players. 

The battle pass, of course, comes with a cavalcade of cosmetics. Those who one the Year One Edition of Hood: Outlaws & Legends will get immediate access to the battle pass, and those who wish to purchase it separately have two options.

The Year One Battle Pass Pack includes passes for Seasons 1-3 for $24.99, though it’s currently on sale for $19.99. Or they can purchase just the Season 1 Battle Pass for $9.99.
