Zelda Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass Detailed, Includes Two Content Packs Launching This Year
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, the new entry in the series launching next month on Wii U and Switch, is going to receive additional content after launch, with two Content Packs launching before the end of 2017.
On its official UK website, Nintendo confirmed that a Zelda Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass will be available for purchase starting from March 3rd, granting access to two different Content packs launching this Summer and during Holiday 2017. The two packs will include new items, new locations and much more. Interestingly enough, the two packs cannot be bought individually.
Starting when the game launches on 3rd March, players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for £17.99/€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 which Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass. The other two Treasure Chests 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.
Zelda Breath of the Wild launches on March 3rd in North America and Europe on Wii U and Nintendo Switch. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
