Zelda: Breath Of The Wild DLC Fail To Convince Fans

Adjust Comment Print

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have two DLC packs, with the first dropping sometime during northern summer. It costs £17.99 and launches "this summer", with a second DLC pack then landing "winter 2017".

In a detailed overview of the upcoming DLC pack, Nintendo shed light on what can fans expect from the new content that comes with a new mode, new equipment and so much more. Enemies all increase in strength, and it will introduce a new tier of enemies that were not in the standard mode. For example, they regain health over time and Red Bokoblins will be Blue Bokoblins, which are slightly bigger and stronger. Players are also bound to encounter enemies with higher maximum levels that were not present in normal play. Once he clears a room of enemies, he'll proceed to the next, all en route to awakening the "true power of the Master Sword".

A lot of the extras are based around completing the game 100%, with the Hero's Path mode allowing you to see everywhere you've been in the last 200 hours, and thereby get an idea of where you might have missed something. This even works retroactively, so players that have already put many hours into the game will be able to see where they have traveled. There will also be a new item called the Korok Mask.

Korok Mask Majora's Mask Tingle's Outfit Phantom Armor Midna's Helmet Nintendo also announced (via Polygon) a multi-language audio patch, which allows fans to play the game with a subtitle language different from the audio output language without changing their system settings. This include Tingle and majora's mask and more.


Nintendo of America has just unveiled the first of two DLC packs coming to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild later this year. Hidden in a chest somewhere in Hyrule, this medallion has the power to create one (and only one) temporary new travel point on the map.

To make exploration a bit easier, you'll be able to find a Travel Medallion. The Medallion will createa new temporary travel point where the player is now standing. It has a one-off use, which places a fast travel point on the map. There are 900 in the game and collecting them all earns you a pile of poop. It is unknown if these will have special features, but the Korok Mask will shake if you're close to the location of a Korok Seed.

And it features a horde-like mode called Trial of the Sword where you take on waves of enemies - with a sword.

The DLC is headlined by the Trial of the Sword, which consists 45 rooms of enemies to defeat. Link starts the challenge without any equipment or weapons.
