It’s finally here! Today marks the release of the first DLC pack from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Expansion Pass, the Master Trials, on Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The new features in the Master Trials pack include:

  • The Trial of the Sword challenge
  • Master (Hard) Mode
  • Hero’s Path
  • Travel Medallion
  • Eight new armor items
  • Korok Mask

Here’s what Nintendo had to say in a press release:

“More adventures await in the Master Trials pack, available June 30. By completing the Trial of the Sword challenge, Link will prove that he has grown worthy, and the Master Sword will be awakened to always be in its glowing, powered-up state while usable. Master Mode ups the challenge, Hero’s Path mode tracks 200 hours of footsteps on the map, the Travel Medallion creates a warp point, eight new armor items offer unique effects, and the Korok Mask helps locate Koroks. This content can only be obtained by purchasing the $19.99 Expansion Pass, which also includes The Champion’s Ballad, the second DLC Pack that will be available this holiday season. Full version of the game is required to use this DLC.”

Did you purchase the $19.99 Expansion Pass, or are you waiting to see how the content pans out? Let us know in the comments. I’m definitely excited to jump back into Breath of the Wild this weekend to check out the new features.

The next DLC pack, The Champion’s Ballad, will launch on Nintendo Switch and Wii U later this holiday season.
