The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - The Champions' Ballad DLC Released

The second DLC expansion for Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been released, bringing with it new story elements, environments, items, and even a motorcycle.

Following the release of the Master Trials expansion to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild back in June, the second and last major expansion to the game included in the expansion pass, The Champions' Ballad, has been released on both Wii U and Switch as of yesterday. The DLC features a number of new additions to the game, including new weapons, armor, story elements, means of transportation, and even a new dungeon and shrines.

The expansion presents new armor sets that further reference past Zelda games, such as the Phantom Ganon armor from Ocarina of Time, the Island Lobster shirt from Wind Waker, and so on. Link will take on a new dungeon with a weapon called the One-Hit Obliterator, whose name makes its strength pretty clear, and will also gain access to the Ancient Saddle and Ancient Bridle, which will allow your horse to be summoned from far away and gain more stamina respectively.  

Most eye-catching of all, Link will in fact be able to unlock what is for all intents and purposes a fully functional motorcycle upon completing the expansion's newly presented challenges. The vehicle is called The Master Cycle Zero, and players can only obtain it once they have completed both the new dungeon as well as the new shrines in the expansion, as well as reached a point of progress in the main game where they have freed every Divine Beast. The Divine Beast and dungeon requirement also applies to the newfound story elements, where the player can learn further from Kass the Bard what became of the four champions as well as Princess Zelda, presumably before and after the invasion of Calamity Ganon. 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as all of its DLC is available now for both Wii U and Switch. You can watch a trailer for The Champion's Ballad expansion right here:


I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
