Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champion's Ballad DLC is Available Tonight

We know when we'll finally get a shot at Breath of the Wild's upcoming story content.

At the 2017 Game Awards, Nintendo finally revealed the release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's next downloadable content. That release date is right around the corner. Actually, it's right now. That's right, Champion's Ballad will be available this evening for download.

While the Master Trials were gameplay in focus, The Champion's Ballad is all about the story, focusing on the tale of the Link, Princess Zelda, and the original four Champions who fell in the fight against Ganon 100 years prior to the beginning of the game.

That means players get to spend more time with Daruk, Mipha, Revali and Urbosa. One of the issues I had with the original release of the game was a lack of time spent with the Champions, who seemed to be excellent characters in their own right.

The trailer showed off the new story content. It also offered up some new gameplay teases, like new dungeons, a new armored horse, and a damned motorcycle for Link. The motorcycle is your reward for finishing the new Champions Ballad content.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
