Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Expansion Pass Detailed

The Age of Calamity expansion pass is bringing lots more Hyrule Warriors goodness to the Breath of the Wild prequel.

If you thought saving the kingdom was the end of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, you were wrong. Nintendo announced the Age of Calamity expansion pass with new characters, weapons, and more during the February Nintendo Direct.

Age of Calamity's expansion pass will cost $19.99, and the new content starts rolling out May 28 with a purchase bonus of:

  • New weapon for Link
  • New costume for Link

The first proper wave in the Age of Calamity expansion pass hits in June 2021. It'll bring the following to the game:

  • New character(s)
  • New weapon types
  • More Ancient Lab challenges
  • More challenging enemies

It's not yet clear how many new characters the first wave includes or who they might be.

Wave 2 lands in November 2021, and with it comes:

  • New character vignettes
  • New stages
  • More new characters
  • New skills for existing characters

Naturally, the expansion pass needs the full version of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity to work, and it's definitely worth it for Zelda fans and Warriors fans alike.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
