For gamers who have already completed "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", Nintendo is teasing the first downloadable content that will add more play time to the action-adventure video game. Players using the Wii U version will need to download a Voice Pack from the Nintendo eShop. This one is due this Summer, while the second-which includes an expansion of the story-is coming later.
Nintendo has unveiled the first DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The latter will include a few new modes: The Trail of the Sword, Hard Mode, and Hero's Path Mode.
The new feature will allow players to track their pathing around the map, which will prove useful to identify areas that might have been missed. Hidden in a chest somewhere in Hyrule, this medallion has the power to create one (and only one) temporary new travel point on the map. Majora's Mask, Midna's Helmet, Phantom Armor and a whole Tingle outfit will be up for grabs (the benefits of which have yet to be revealed), while there's also a Korok mask that let's you find the game's elusive leaf people.
The horde mode is available at a certain sacred location within Breath of the Wild (where you first pulled out the Master Sword) and requires you to face off against an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another. There will be 45 rooms in which waves of increasing more hard enemies will need to be vanquished.
Players will begin without any weapons or armor, and pitted against forty-five rooms full of different enemies.
When all enemies are defeated, Link moves to the next room.

Cassini spacecraft poised to dive beneath Saturn rings
Cassini's particle detectors will sample icy ring particles being funneled into the atmosphere by Saturn's magnetic field. The spacecraft will make similar manoeuvres during its subsequent dives, the next of which is scheduled for Tuesday.
The biggest addition is the Trials of the Sword, which adds 45 challenges that will awaken the "true power of the Master Sword". The new Korok mask will allow players to more easily locate the forest spirits by shaking when one is nearby. The player can transport to that point at any time.
There just feels like there's so much more that Nintendo could have done to make Breath of the Wild the ultimate survival game.
Which part of the expansion sounds most exciting to you? With more people finishing the game each day, fans are turning their heads toward the upcoming DLC. There's also a Korok Mask to discover hidden in a treasure chest.
Korok Mask: By finding the new Korok Mask, players will have a much easier time finding Korok locations in the game. With this medallion, you can set a travel point on the map, even if you aren't at a Shrine or tower.
