The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of this year’s most anticipated games and will also be a launch title for the equally anticipated new console from Nintendo, the Switch. If you can’t wait to go on an adventure with Link then you will be interested to learn Nintendo has announced an expansion pass for the game.
Similar to a season pass, the expansion pass will cost $20 and will give owners access to all future DLC that is released for Breath of the Wild as it becomes available. As you can see from the image below, purchasing the expansion pass will instantly grant you access to three treasure chests that will give you useful items and new clothes. Two new expansions will then be released that include new challenges, a hard mode, new map features, and new stories.
A video has also been released announcing the expansion pass. As it states, a lot of effort has gone into making the world of Hyrule a vast place full of things to see and do, but this expansion is for players who want to make sure they get everything they can from the game.
It would be fair to say that season passes can be a controversial topic in the gaming industry, especially when they include day one DLC like this one does. Will you be buying the expansion pass for Breath of the Wild, or will you wait and see what the content is like first?
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to be released on March 3 as a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. It will also be available on the Wii U.
