The Season 1 Pass for Skullgirls 2nd Encore has been announced. Annie of the Stars will be the first character that's part of this pass.

This Season Pass 1 will have four new DLC fighters in total. The second challenger is currently slated to be released before the end of 2021. We'll have to wait until 2022 for the third and fourth challengers.

According to the Skullgirls 2nd Encore Season 1 Pass FAQ, the plan right now is to have Annie available for early access in March 2021. Pending balance adjustments, Annie will see a final release on Steam and the PlayStation in May 2021.

Along with Annie will come a new stage and story mode focused on Annie's goals in the Skullgirls universe. Balance adjustments and bug fixes have also been announced for the game.

While the next three fighters after Annie have already been chosen, it seems that the team is open to the idea of releasing a fifth character depending on how well the Season 1 Pass sells.

"Depending on how well the Annie DLC and Season Pass does - we hope to add even more FREE stuff to the Season Pass list, up to and including a FIFTH Brand New Character! We are still working on the details for this, but if this does come to pass, we will also be exploring ways in which players can also participate in the selection process," said the Steam FAQ.

Skullgirls 2nd Encore and all previous DLC are being discounted to $9.99. The Season 1 Pass will be priced at $29.99. Each new character will add 25+ color palettes, a new stage and a new story mode.

Season 1 Pass characters can also be purchased individually for $9.99 each. If you plan to buy all of them, it really is a good deal to just purchase the pass at $29.99.
