The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's First DLC Pack Detailed

When all enemies are defeated, Link moves to the next room.

First things first is a new mode dubbed Trial of the Sword. This sounds extremely useful for looking at where you've been in Breath of the Wild's very big world, allowing you to see what areas of the map you've yet to explore on your journey. Then we have the Travel Medallion, which will be hidden in some treasure chest within the game world, and will serve to create a new temporary travel spot on the map. The player can transport to that point at any time. You will be limited to one location at a time though.

There are also new masks, including a Korosk mask. There are 900 Koroks hiding in Hyrule, so this should help you discover quite a few of them. Once it is out, you will have to search for the newly added items in the game's world since their location still remains a surprise for now.

No release date beyond summer was announced for The Master Trials.

Breath of the Wild has cemented its place in history with record-breaking success and rave reviews. Link begins without any weapons or armor in a room full of enemies.

Trial of the Sword: A wave-based survival mode, which will charge up the strength of the Master Sword if you complete it.

Known as The Master Trials, the downloadable content pack is the first of two planned add-ons for Breath of the Wild.

The best part is that this even works retroactively, so players that have already put many hours into the game will be able to see where they have traveled. And on top of it all, enemies can have higher levels. In addition, there will also be floating platforms found through out the world, which will have some very tough enemies atop them, but also, some great loot as well.

Hard Mode: Hard Mode increases ranks for enemies in the game. This lets players see where they've walked from the last 200 hours of gameplay.

After downloading the DLC, a treasure chest with a Travel Medallion inside it will appear somewhere in Hyrule. Lotting this item allows to you can register one location on Zelda: Breath of the Wild's map and fast travel there.

The expansion also features some new equipment including the Korok mask and the travel medallion. The new Korok mask will allow players to more easily locate the forest spirits by shaking when one is nearby.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting two add-ons, and Nintendo has just offered details on what to expect in the first one.

Eight new pieces of equipment come with the pack, modeled after past The Legend of Zelda characters such as Tingle, Majora's Mask, and Midna.
