Earlier this year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released on the Wii U and the new Nintendo Switch to universal acclaim. Later, Expansion Pass holders gained access to the game’s first major DLC, The Master Trials. The second major DLC, The Champions’ Ballad, has been scheduled for a holiday 2017 release for some time now, but we haven’t gotten a specific release date until now. And it’s out now.
At this year’s Game Awards, a trailer for the Breath of the Wild The Champions’ Ballad DLC was shown, after which it was announced that the DLC will be available tonight (December 7). The trailer also showed off some cinematics, which focused on the DLC’s new original story, which will center on the four Champions before Link awoke from his one hundred year sleep. The DLC will also include a new dungeon as well as new challenges. It was also revealed that after the various new activities that The Champions’ Ballad offers have been completed, players will be able to unlock the Master Cycle Zero, a motorcycle that Link can ride on in the game’s immense open world. Series producer Eiji Aonuma explained that Link is the one Champion without a Divine Beast, so the Master Cycle Zero will sort of act as his.
