‘Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ to get DLC pass for $20
Zelda: Breath of the Wild is not even released yet and already a season pass DLC (downloadable content) has been announced for it.
The season pass will go on sale on March 3, the same time as the Nintendo Switch and Breath of the Wild are scheduled to be released, and will be priced at $19.99 (almost P1,000). This will be inclusive of two DLC packs that will be released in different times within 2017, reports Engadget.
DLC Pack One will add a new Cave of Trials level, a hard “difficulty setting,” and “additional map feature.” Pack Two on the other hand will add a new original story, as well as a new dungeon and “additional challenges.”
As bonus to the $20 expansion pass, players who avail will get a special in-game Switch logo-emblazoned shirt, that can be worn by the game’s protagonist Wolf Link for the Switch and Wii U versions of the game.
“The world of Hyrule, which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it,” said long-time Zelda game producer Eiji Aonuma.
Exploration is one of the key tenets for Zelda games and the added content from the DLC packs should equate to more hours of gameplay for one of the most anticipated games this year. Alfred Bayle/JB
