It seems like no major AAA release these days is complete without giving the players the option to purchase a season pass for upcoming DLC, and now it looks like the latest Zelda will be joining that bandwagon. Those looking to spend more time with Breath of the Wild will have two sets of content to keep their adventure going.
Purchasing the game’s “expansion” pass will instantly unlock a few goodies before any of the DLC is released. Players will find three extra treasure chests early in the game; two containing various useful goods, and the third a shirt for Link featuring the Switch logo. The real meat of the season pass will start sometime in the summer with the first major content release, which includes a new Cave of Trials, a hard mode for the game, and a “new feature for the in-game map.” The second batch will launch sometime during the holidays this year and it will feature additional challenges, a brand new dungeon, and even new story content.
The season pass will be available for purchase alongside the game when it, and the Switch, launch on March 3. The new content will cost $20.00 and will not be available separately.
