Hood: Outlaws & Legends’ Third Season, Ostara, Has Arrived and Introduces Cross-Platform Squads

Hood Outlaws & Legends 1

Multiplayer rob-em-up Hood: Outlaws & Legends’ third season has kicked off and you can now create your own cross-platform gang.

That’s not the only development Season 3 brings, but it’s the most significant. You can now arrange heists, grouping up beforehand, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Though it’s arrived with the launch of Season 3: Ostara, the cross-play update is free. The rest of the Season 3 content, however, is not. You need to have purchased the Season 3 battle pass or the Year 1 battle pass. Season 3 is the final chunk of Year 1 content (the game launched last May).

And if you’re wondering why Ostara sounds like Easter, it’s been suggested that, originally a celebration of the Spring Equinox, Ostara became Easter and that’s why we have bunnies delivering Easter Eggs. Whether that’s true is harder to determine – it’s an interesting idea (Christmas is definitely on top of a Pagan festival) – but yet to be absolutely proven.

The content that’s added, and available now, includes:

  • Over 100 new cosmetics.

That’s it and yes, we wasted a bullet point on that. There’s no new maps, new modes or anything else. Admittedly, we haven’t exactly embraced Hood: Outlaws & Legends (it didn’t steal our hearts when we reviewed it) but for £7.99, the price of the Ostara pass, you’d expect much more. You might be better off spending that money on chocolate Easter Eggs or sending it to Ukraine.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
