Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild Receives an Expansion Pass

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will be getting, for the first time in my memory for the Zelda franchise, downloadable content. Players will be able to grab the upcoming downloads with a $20 Season Pass option.

The two downloads will be available later in the year, and will be available for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game. For those of you thinking that maybe you can grab online one of the uploads, stop that thought right there. As Nintendo has stated quite clearly you can’t grab them individually – and that they come as a set. Though for only $20 dollars, it’s hardly a huge cost.

Nintendo had this to say on their website about the downloads:

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 other two will deliver useful items. 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 and are identical. Content packs cannot be purchased individually.

If you glazed over the information above, listen to our favourite producer deliver it himself: Eiji Aonuma.
