First Zelda's Breath Of The Wild DLC Gets Detailed

As the first DLC pack in the Zelda series, The Master Trials has a lot riding on it.

Information about the second DLC pack, which is set to be released in the holiday season.

It sounds like a pretty good expansion all around- now we just need to know when it will be available. They resort to such methods as it is easier to distribute additional content through downloads, but previous Nintendo attempts at DLCs ended up with losses on their side.

There are also rumours of a new Nintendo Direct next week, at least in Japan, which may have something to do with the DLC. In this trial, Link must take on groups of enemies in 45 rooms starting. Players can also slide through a timeline to track footsteps from specific times. The best part is that this even works retroactively, so players that have already put many hours into the game will be able to see where they have traveled. Basically, what this feature does is help players discover more places and shrines, since this will show the locations where Link has only been to. Found in a chest, the Travel Medallion lets you register your current location as a fast travel point on the map. Using this, players can make a temporary travel point on the map where they are standing. The player can transport to that point at any time. The details have been a bit sparse as to what these DLCs include, but now we have them in full for The Master Trials. These items are the Travel Medallion for quick travel, the Korok Mask to locate and find Koroks, and the Themed Equipment, which included the Midna, Tingle, Phantom, and Majora's Mask items.

No release date beyond summer was announced for The Master Trials.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Here's what's included in the game's first DLC pack
Breath of the Wild — Trial of the Sword

Are you excited for Breath of the Wild's DLC?

And it features a horde-like mode called Trial of the Sword where you take on waves of enemies - with a sword. Link starts with no armor and weapons, so you'll have to eliminate all those who cross your path to upgrade your equipment, until you reach the last round. Completing this awakens the true power of the Master Sword.

If you're planning to buy (or already bought) a Nintendo Switch, consider The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild an essential purchase to go along with your new console. Enemies in this mode will also slowly recover health during battle and will be able to more easily spot Link as he approaches. All enemies are also powered up by one level. Floating planks have been scattered throughout the world, with loot and enemies on them.

Another addition is the Hero's Path mode.

A new treasure chest in the world will contain the Travel Medallion. The Medallion will createa new temporary travel point where the player is now standing. There's carrots too, not just sticks: Hard Mode will feature enemies on flying, balloon-supoorted platforms that feature rare treasure-but also make it more risky to glide around with impunity.
