The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild gets DLC Pass
An expansion pass is planned for upcoming open world game
Nintendo has announced plans to release an Expansion Pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This will be the first-ever downloadable content for the main-line Legend of Zelda series.
Starting when the game launches on March 3, players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for $19.99, granting access to two new sets of downloadable content for the game when they become available later this year. Immediately upon pre-purchase or purchase of the Expansion Pass, three new treasure chests will appear in the game’s Great Plateau area. One of these treasure chests will contain a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo that Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass.
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 visit 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 and are identical. In a surprising move, the content packs cannot be purchased individually.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to release next month for Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
