Even if you've sunk 100 hours or more into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild already, your journey isn't over. Now that you've mastered Link's new techniques, vanquished enemies new and old, and cooked yourself a lot of campfire meals, it's nearly time for the first DLC Pack, "Master Trials." The DLC will hit on June 30, 2017, and it has a lot of new Zelda action for you.

Included in the first DLC pack is a new mode, Master Mode, which will force you to really show off your skills. This isn't an easy game by any stretch, so only experts need apply. You'll also get Trial of the Sword, Hero's Path, the Travel Medallion, a Korok Mask, and eight new armors for use in the game in the first pack.

DLC Pack 2 is "The Champions' Ballad," and that's coming Holiday 2017. No details were released for that one yet, but it will obviously feature the Champions from the game, Daruk, Mipha, Revali, and Urbosa. Nintendo promises a new dungeon, new original story, and more challenge modes. All four Champions will also be available as Amiibo (see above), likely timed with the launch of the DLC, though nothing beyond "soon" was specified.

Check out the new DLC trailer below. You can get both DLC packs with the $19.99 Expansion Pass, which also grants you three new chests in the Great Plateau instantly.
