New Weapons and Characters are Coming

Hyrule Warriros: Age of Calamity expansion pass has been announced, meaning it is getting a series of paid DLC updates on Nintendo Switch.

 

The Age of Calamity expansion pass will cost $19.99 and will include the following: 

Available May 28, 2021: 

 
 
  • A new weapon for link 
  • A new costume for Link

Wave 1, Available June 2021: 

  • Expanded roster 
  • Newly added weapon types 
  • New challenges in the Royal Ancient Lab 
  • Newly added challenging enemies 

Wave 2, Available November 2021: 

  • New character vignettes 
  • New stages 
  • Expanded roster 
  • New battle skills for existing characters

Both Wave 1 and Wave 2 of the Age of Calamity DLC include new characters and new stages, though Nintendo has not yet released what specifically you'll see in this update. 

 Age of Calamity gives you a better look at the events that transpired before 2017's Breath of the Wild, and gives you the opportunity to play as many different heroes that you meet across Hyrule in Breath of the Wild. It does not currently look like this expansion adds to the story in any way, but gives Hyrule Warriors players additional challenges to look forward to throughout 2021. There are currently dozens upon dozens of challenges included with the main game for you to play through, so the promise of even more may help justify the $20 price tag for this Zelda DLC. 

Have you been enjoying Hyrule Warriors on Switch? Excited to return to Hyrule once again as Nintendo remains mostly silent on development updates for Breath of the Wild 2? Let us know if you're planning to pick up the Age of Calamity DLC for $19.99!
