Breath of the Wild gets even bigger with a new look at its upcoming DLC

Matt Sayer 14 June 2017 NEWS

New enemies, new challenges, and new armour on the way.

New details on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's upcoming DLC were revealed at Nintendo's E3 Spotlight event this morning. The first half of the Expansion pass, the Master Trials pack, will include the Trial of the Sword challenge shown off in the trailer above, as well as the Hero Path feature which shows where Link has travelled across the game's map. A new Hard Mode will power up enemies with regenerating health, while a handy Travel Medallion will give Link the ability to fast travel across Breath of the Wild's massive world.

The second half of the Expansion pass, dubbed The Champions' Ballad, is also teased in the trailer, showing how each of the original game's four champions will make their return for a new story.

The first half of Breath of the Wild's DLC will be available on both Switch and Wii U on June 30. The second half is slated for release in holiday 2017.
