How to Play the New Zelda DLC Right Now


A new trailer showcases the expansion, dubbed "The Champion's Ballad".

The 2017 edition of The Game Awards ended with Eiji Aonuma and Hidemaro Fujibayashi, producer and director of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild respectively, lifting the coveted prize and receiving a standing ovation from the audience.

There's also a quest from the travelling bard Kass, who if you help him finish his songs will uncover more of the story from the Champion's and Princess Zelda's past during Link's long slumber.

Gamers were so excited by the announcement during the Game Awards, they forgot they were being broadcast from the west coast, so "tonight" wasn't fast enough.

Host and event creator of The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley, presented the prestigious Game of the Year Award to Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at Thursday night's event. To get the new content in "Breath of the Wild", you must first purchase the expansion pass for the game; it costs $20, and gets you the previously-released expansion as well as the new one.

As you might have noticed in the trailer that announced the release of The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack 2, Link has access to a new motorbike, named the Master Cycle Zero. It looks kinda ridiculous, but it'll assuredly be a ton of fun to motor around Hyrule at high speeds.

The Champions' Ballad will be the second DLC released by Nintendo for the game and players will still continue the adventure by playing as Link, while also learning a lot more about Zelda this go-around.
