Over the weekend Nintendo has revealed details about the first expansion for the awesome Zelda Breath Of The Wild game which is available to play exclusively on their new console the Nintendo Switch.
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild DLC will include a Horde Mode called Trial By The Sword, during which you have to take on an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another to add extra difficulty to the challenge Link starts without any equipment or weapons.
The new content will also provide players with a Hard Mode as well as a ‘Travel Medallion,’ which allows you to place a single fast travel marker anywhere on the map. The expansion pack will include 8 new chests filled with armour pieces for players to find, several of them referencing other Legend of Zelda games. The armours include:
• Majora’s mask
• Tingle’s Outfit
• Midna’s Helmet
• Phantom Armor
• Korok Mask
Nintendo explains a little more about the Hero’s Path Mode, Hard mode and equipment:
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.
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!
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.
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.
Unfortunately, no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Nintendo, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
