Season 1: Samhain is now available for all Hood: Outlaws & Legends Players, bringing new surprises, upgrades, bug fixes, and a brand new character, Eidaa, to the game.
Hood’s newest outlaw, Eidaa, is a talented skirmisher who brings both sword and sorcery to the field. As a hybrid character, Eidaa is capable of both dodging and parrying, but she has lower health than the other melee characters, so careful stamina management is key. Eidaa can replenish gearboxes to keep her team up, as well as set tar bombs to slow and damage enemies. Her ultimate is a magic shield that blocks enemy projectiles, perfect for locking down key sightlines and protecting objectives. Like the other outlaws, she comes with several cosmetics and perks to customize her look and feel in game!
Make sure to watch the trailer to get the best look at Eidaa and her kit.
Season 1: Samhain also introduces a new rework for the Winch System. The final fight to the finish will now be score-based, with a certain number of completed Notches required to win. But completing early-game objectives, like pickpocketing the Sheriff, opening the vault, and placing the chest, will grant you a significant head start, rewarding teams that work quickly and quietly throughout the heist.
Finally, Season 1 adds three maps for State Heist, Hood’s new PvE co-op mode. You can attack a fortified, snow-tipped keep in Mountain, battle across the cliffy shores of Coastal, and assault the swampy wetlands of Marshland. Hood’s first Battle Pass is also now live, and players can unlock a wide variety of new outlaw appearances, weapons, and banners.
Additionally, players can purchase the premium battle pass which introduces new costumes, weapon skins, and more to the game. This pass is already owned by anyone who purchased the year one edition.
Currently, Hood: Outlaws & Legends is free to try out on Steam until September 5. It is also on sale only on Steam for 40% off for a limited time, though it is unclear whether this discount will last until September 5 as well.
