Zelda: Breath Of The Wild's Day One Update Adds DLC Menu
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's day one update, which is out now, introduces a new menu option allowing you to see what DLC is available for the game. It is unclear what else is included in the patch.
The only DLC available right now is the content offered to those who've already purchased the game's season pass. This includes three new treasure chests, which contain "useful items" and "exclusive in-game clothing," according to Nintendo.
The season pass--which is available for both the Switch and Wii U versions of Breath of the Wild--will include two full expansions: one will launch in "Summer 2017" and one in "Holiday 2017." They'll include new challenges, difficulty settings, dungeons, and more. The add-ons cannot be purchased individually.
Breath of the Wild launches on March 3. Reviews have now gone live for the latest Zelda title, and it seems critics are more than impressed. In our Zelda: Breath of the Wild review, critic Peter Brown called the game "a defining moment for The Legend of Zelda series, and the most impressive game Nintendo has ever created."
He added: "No matter how gorgeous its environments are, how clever its enemies are, and how tricky its puzzles get, the fact that Breath of the Wild continues to surprise you with newfound rules and possibilities after dozens of hours is by far its most valuable quality. It's a game that allows you to feel gradually more and more empowered yet simultaneously manages to retain a sense of challenge and mystery--which, together, creates a steady, consistent feeling of gratification throughout the entire experience."
