Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass Announced, Brings Hard Mode And Original Story


Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC Expansion Pass

Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting an “Expansion Pass” for $19.99 when the game launches on March 3, with two sets of DLC that will be available later this year.


Upon purchasing the Expansion Pass, players will be given three new treasure chests that appear in the game’s Great Plateau area. One of the chests contain a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo for Link, exclusive to the Expansion Pass. The other two will deliver useful items.


Here’s what players will get from the Expansion Pass DLC:

  • The first content pack is scheduled to launch this summer and will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode, and a new feature for the in-game map.


  • The second content pack will launch in Holiday 2017, and adds new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story.


The expansion pass will be available for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game. It should also be noted that the content packs cannot be purchased individually.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild releases on March 3, 2017 for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
