After a few months in silent, finally, a new paid DLC is coming to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild". According to Nintendo, they will contain new clothes and useful items. The first DLC pack is scheduled to arrive in Summer 2017, and will include a number of features including the "Trial of the Sword', a new Hard Mode, and a Travel Medallion".
"The Trial of the Sword" will be a gauntlet in which Link has to fight again a horde of enemies, one room at a time, in order to progress. The trial may seem hard; however, if all rooms are conquered, players will be allowed to use the Master Sword in its most powerful state. Players will have to defeat the foes in the room to keep going and finish the battle.
In Hard Mode, enemies gradually regain health, so take them out as quickly as possible. The waypoint will disappearwhen a new one is created.
Wearing the mask, if you pass by a Korok or Korok puzzle, it will begin to vibrate, indicating their presence. And lastly, the new equipment will be themed on characters like Midna and Tingle, as well as games like Phantom Hourglass and Majora's Mask.
Somewhere as yet unknown in Hyrule, a trasure chest will appear, holding within it the Travel Medallion.
We don't know a huge amount about this yet, but we do know that there will be a maximum of one Travel Medallion point available at a time.
The Korok Mask sounds like a pretty great tool for completionists, as it acts as a kind of Korok alarm whenever one of the little hidden creatures is nearby. This series of challenges will have Link fighting off a succession of enemies while starting stripped of his equipment. After doing so, Hestu will give Link "Hestu's Gift", and apparently, it does not do much more than make Hestu dance.
Hero's Path mode is a new tracking system that will be available to players with the DLC on release.
Hero's Path Mode This new map feature shows the path Link has walked through Hyrule from the last 200 hours of gameplay. Having a record of places that have been visited will allow players to fully explore the world in Breath of the Wild, including Shrines that remain unconquered and potential Korok locations. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Season Pass is now available for $19.99 and includes two DLC packs.
The game will now support French, Canadian French, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and English.
Players are somewhat uninspired by Nintendo's choice to use DLC to provide new content on existing games, although Nintendo has had enough experience concerning expansions and add-ons to their games and consoles. The first of two planned DLCs will be released for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game this Summer with the second planned for a holiday release.
