In gaming world, Nintendo has at last outlined what is included in the first batch of the DLC content, part of that $20 expansion pass for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So, there are 6 features that will be the part of the first DLC update.
Let’s take a look at the first three, most notably of them is the Trials of Sword challenge previously named Cave of Trials. Players completing this 45 room challenge will be rewarded with the true power of the massive sword and on top of that the sword will always be in it’s power-up state. So, finally an unbreakable weapon that you can carry around. No more switching and no more hunting down weapons.
There’s also going to be a new mask added to the game, most notably the Korok Mask.
This mask will make it easier to find those pesky Korok seeds spread out to the world of Zelda. There’s 900 of them and it’s really frustrating to finding them. It’s truly one of those pesky part of the games that should be simplified or just left out of the game completely.
Then there’s New Equipment that players can collect allow them to look like other characters from past Zelda games like; Midna, Tingle, Phantom and Majora’s Mask.
There’s also other three batch of contents; first of is Hard Mode. Basically enemies will gain in rank i.e: harder version of the same enemies like White and Purple Bokoblins in place of Red Bokoblins. Places that normally wouldn’t have enemies will now see hard, enemies spawn there to encourage player to kill enemies faster. They will now slowly restore health as the fight progresses which sucks for being a paid DLC.
Another part of the DLC is the Travel Medallion, first player have to find this Medallion in the game. This new item will let you basically pin on a map where you want to set a fast travel point and from there players can almost fast travel to their pin point. Player can go anywhere when he wants to anywhere where the pin is to save his time by actually going there. This also sucks that this has to be part of the paid DLC.
The next one is Hero’s Path, players can now retrace their steps taking in the game via and outline on the map showing where they have traveled up to the last 200 hours of gameplay. This is pretty great for identifying where you haven’t explored.
It’s frustrating to see that these DLC features are being left out of the main game and that you have to pay $20 or a DLC to get it.
