First 'Zelda: Breath of the Wild' DLC adds more reasons to replay

This summer, DLC will add 'Tingle' and 'Majora's Mask' to Link's clothing choices, as well as a new Hard Mode.


Nintendo's latest Zelda game is such a smash hit that copies of the Switch version outsold the console itself. Now, for players who've already traversed every corner of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's open world, the company has revealed details of its first planned DLC expansion. Due sometime this summer, DLC will add the promised 'Hard Mode' where enemies are powered up by one level, have higher maximum levels and they slowly regain health -- oh, and enemies and chests can be found in the sky.

A new Korok mask that shakes whenever Link nears one of their hidden locations will help players find all 900 of them, while new armor sets recall outfits from previous games (yes, Tingle is back, and so is Majora's Mask). A "Trial of the Sword" challenge will let Link take out enemies to awaken "the true power of the Master Sword," while the Hero's Path mode will help keep an eye on where you've been in the last 200 hours. Finally, a new Travel Medallion will let players designate their current location as a place that they can instantly fast travel back to.

If you're already interested, a season pass for both planned expansions is available for $20/£18.
