Granted, if you have finished The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and don't want to spend any more time in that world, I don't blame you. However there are plenty of people who would look for virtually any excuse to dive back into that version of Hyrule with its unbelievable open world and interacting systems.

Nintendo released some details for the first DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will be released this summer.

Dubbed "The Master Trials" (available exclusively as part of a $20 expansion pass), this new add-on introduces Trial of the Sword: a new challenge area where Link must slice his way through roughly 45 rooms of enemies with limited resources. The Trial of the Sword challenge sounds incredibly intriguing- it has Link take on a gauntlet of enemies and trials, one after the other, without any break. Some enemies will also regain health if you don't defeat them quickly enough, you'll also be easier to spot if you plan on sneaking by so be extra careful. The reward seems like it will be worth the effort: When you make it all the way through, "the true power of the Master Sword will awaken and always be in its glowing powered-up state", says Nintendo.

Hero's Path Mode: This map option will show players everywhere they've been on the map.

If you've already spent the ungodly amount of time it takes to see everything The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has to offer, fret not - more content is on the way.

Venkaiah applauds Baahubali 2, says Rajamouli has broken barriers of Indian cinema
In just 3 days, the movie has shattered many box office records and is well on way to become the highest grossing Indian movie . The film features Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sathyaraj and Rama Krishnan in pivotal roles.

Meanwhile, the said new armor sets will not add new abilities for Link, according to Eurogamer. This can come in real handy if you have been trying for hours to find the last few Shrines or worse... Also, they introduced new challenges and tougher enemies which do not occur during the normal difficulty mode. And on top of it all, enemies can have higher levels.

If that isn't tough enough for you, you insane person, Hard Mode ranks up all the enemies and even adds some higher-ranking enemies that you can't see in a normal game.

Additionally, some new enemies will appear in the world with Hard Mode enabled, as well as floating planks where you can battle enemies and collect treasure.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (review diary) is a meaty adventure of note, but Nintendo already confirmed that it was getting downloadable content (DLC).

One of the coolest new features is the addition of a smart map. This unique item allows Link to create a new fast-travel point anywhere in the world. You will be limited to one location at a time though.
