Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Here’s what’s included in the game’s first DLC pack


Majora's Mask content incoming.

Nintendo today detailed the contents of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s first DLC pack.

The content includes a nod to The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask alongside fast travel, hard mode and more.

Here a listing of all the content inside the first DLC pack:

  • Trial of the Sword: When you get to a certain sacred location, you can take on the new “Trial of the Sword” challenge. Face an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another. Link starts the challenge without any equipment or weapons. When all the enemies in a room are defeated, Link proceeds to the next. Clear all the trials (about 45 rooms in total), and the true power of the Master Sword awakens.
  • Hero’s Path Mode: This new map feature shows the path Link has walked through Hyrule from the last 200 hours of gameplay. Use the time tracker bar to see where you’ve spent the most time and where you have yet to explore. There’s bound to be more adventures and maybe a shrine or two on the road less traveled.
  • Hard Mode: In Hard Mode, enemies gradually regain health, so take them out as quickly as possible. All enemies are also powered up by one level. For example, Red Bokoblins in Normal mode are now Blue Bokoblins. Enemies can also have higher maximum levels than they would in Normal mode. Look up, and you may also find enemies and treasure chests in the sky!
  • Travel Medallion: Somewhere in the world, there is a chest with a Travel Medallion inside. When you use this, you can register your current location as a fast travel point on the map. You can only register one location using the Travel Medallion.
  • More Armor: There are 8 treasure chests placed around Hyrule containing armor themed after previous The Legend of Zelda titles. Watch for tips as to the whereabouts of these chests as you travel around Hyrule.
  • Korok Mask: The Korok Mask is also hidden in a treasure chest somewhere in the world. While wearing this mask, it shakes whenever Link is near a hidden Korok location. There are 900 Koroks hiding in Hyrule, so this should help you discover quite a few of them.

You can see some of the new armor sets above.

The content is available as part of the game’s “Season Pass”, confirmed to cost $30 AUD or $34 NZD locally.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available on both Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
