Like a lot of big games these days, the soon to be released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have a season pass (or expansion pass, as Nintendo are calling it) released alongside it, although the difference is that this will be the first DLC ever released for a major Zelda game.

£17.99 will get you the expansion pass, and with it you’ll receive access to two upcoming packs, the first of which arrives in summer. None of the content packs will be available separately.

DLC Pack 1 includes a new hard mode, an additional map feature, and a new Cave of Trials challenge. DLC Pack 2, on the other hand, is due in winter and will include a new original story, a brand new dungeon, and additional challenges.

While you’ll have to wait for the DLC packs to be released, purchasing the expansion pass will instantly unlock three chests in the game’s open-world location. Inside the chests you’ll be able to find useful items as well as a Switch t-shirt for Link to wear.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is launching alongside Nintendo’s new Switch console on March 3rd. The game will also be released on the Wii U in what will be Nintendo’s final game for the console.
