The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials DLC is the first DLC apart of the Expansion Pass. It is more of a simple DLC, giving you some armor and weapons, but the main draw here is the new Master Mode and The Trial of the Sword challenge mode. The question is, is it worth the asking price?
Now the main draw is the Trial of the Sword. Which can be described as one of the best additions I have ever seen added to a game post launch. Similar to a trial in the main game on an island, Trial of the Sword takes away all of your gear and equipment, making things tense. Although your runes do remain intact. You fight through floors of enemies, going through obstacles and challenges that can make anyone want to quit. But if you stick with it and manage to conquer the Trial of the Sword, your Master Sword will have something special happen to it. Sorry no spoilers here.
Now for some of these little side add-ons here. We have the travel medallion that allows you to make your current location a place to where you teleport to. So you need to get back to a specific area later but you don’t have the correct gear? No problem use the travel medallion. The Korok Mask allows you to see Koroks and find them easier, still won’t make me find all 900 though. Misko’s Treasure is a side quest which involves you finding all of the DLC’s outfits such as Majora’s Mask. The new armor is appreciated and I am glad you have to go on quest to find them. Hero’s Path Mode lets you see the progress you have made through the world, seeing your previous footsteps, allowing some help if you get lost. Last but not least Master Mode. Which makes the game much harder. Mixes up enemy placement, adds new enemies to the world, let’s them regenerate health, and more. The game is certainly much more of a challenge which I love.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials DLC is a great addition to the game. The main draw here is the Trial of the Sword, and Master Mode, which both increase re-play ability. I am fine with the rest of the additions but once you get the armor and other little add-ons there’s not much outside of that. I would hope for the next DLC to have some more meaningful story quest, but this DLC is worth it I would say. The Master Trials gets a 8 out of 10. Now bring on Splatoon 2.

Prepare for Platinum. The hardest mode from Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer is now returning to Mass Effect Andromeda. It also appears that the Batarians are going to be making a return as well. Of course this multiplayer update will be completely free which is great. No word on singleplayer DLC yet, and I wanted to say that our site has not covered the story that is running about. The story that says the DLC is cancelled, which I can’t comment on, but there seems to be many misconceptions and we don’t want to report “fake news.”
Player Unknowns Battlegrounds has gotten a new tease at one of the upcoming maps. This one is the desert map, it seems to be going with more a western United States approach instead of the middle eastern desert. The other map we know they are making is a winter snow map which is the one I am greatly interested in.

Nintendo’s Japanese website now shows how much space is needed for the DLC. On Switch, The Master Trials is a 456MB download. The Wii U version oddly requires 3.7GB of free space. Possibly a clue at maybe Switch file compression being better? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials launches this friday as apart of the Expansion Pass.
