The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a DLC season pass

Nintendo has announced that its upcoming Wii U/Switch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have an optional expansion pass which will grant access to two major DLC packs and other minor DLC additions.

Full details on the content included in the pass can be found below courtesy of a statement from Nintendo:

“Starting when the game launches on March 3, players will be able to purchase an expansion pass for $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 that Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the expansion pass. The other two 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.”

In addition to the above text, Nintendo also released a video of Breath of the Wild producer Eiji Aonuma announcing the expansion pass which you can watch below.
