It’s a perfect opportunity to meet up with your team of outlaws and try your hand at the nerve-cracking multiplayer Hood. If you are new to the game, here is everything you need to know.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a multiplayer medieval heist game released in 2021. Faced with a ruthless and unchecked nation, rival gangs engage in daring heists to strike the rich as they hurt and gain influence with an oppressed people. The popular hero or outlaw thirsting for gold, only the best would escape with their hard-earned fortunes. Assemble your team of four, perform nail-biting heists in different PvP modes, PvP modes, and hybrid modes, and infiltrate large medieval environments to find and extract treasure.

Choose your character from five unique classes based on your preferred play style, or what best suits your team’s strategy. In this game where cooperation is key, your team formation can suit a stealthy, long-range approach, brutal close combat, or a more balanced cookie-cutter approach. Form your team and jump into one of the available modes from PvE State Heist where you compete against dangerous AI Rangers, to PvPvE Heist or Gold Rush.

In Heist, the standard PvPvE mode in Hood, beat or beat an opposing team of 4 outlaws to find, steal and extract the heavily guarded fortunes. Incognito will be your best friend when you locate the fearsome mayor of the state who holds the key to the vault and steals it from him. Then, get ready to be chased by the guards and the enemy team as you do your best to extract the loot using one of the cranes located on the many extraction points on the map.

In Gold Rush, your team must bring a certain amount of gold to one of the controlled spawn points before your opponents. But be careful, carrying too much gold will weigh you down, making you run slower, so make sure you secure it regularly or you’re moving as a team in case the rival gang ambushes you along the way. Blood will be shed. Riches will be stolen. Legends will be reborn!

In between burglaries, visit the bunker to spend some of your stolen fortune. Returning money to people will increase the range of items available to you. Upgrade, tweak and polish your characters’ skills through a range of perks, or personalize your heroes with an array of new weapon skins and outfits. Each character has access to unique perks that can drastically affect their playing style, so feel free to experiment.

Hood is available on PS5 and PS4 and features cross-generational game matching and makes it easy to play with your friends on any platform. PS5 players can enjoy a variety of features such as exciting 4K/60FPS visuals and highly responsive haptic feedback. Feel each chord’s tension subtly change in relation to your level of endurance, each hit on the ground, and each slide, run or fall on different surfaces. In a game where accuracy is key, every bit of information is precious.

Since the game’s launch in 2021, tons of content have been added in the form of new maps like Mountain, new modes and two chapters. Season 1: Samhain, bring a new sword-skilled outlaw named Eidaa who is deadly in toe-to-toe combat. Season 2: Yule introduced the Gold Rush mode. And today, to coincide with the launch of the game on PlayStation Plus, we launch the third season: Ostara. A taste of what to expect in the all-new trailer which you can watch below:

Season 3 comes with a new Battle Pass packed with content to pull off heists in style, and as in previous seasons, some balance tweaks as we keep iterating on Hood with feedback from our awesome community of outlaws. Best of all, additional gameplay content for the three seasons, as well as a large amount of cosmetics, are included in the basic package of the game.

Are you ready to become legends?
