Trial of the Sword

When you get to a certain sacred location, you can take on the new "Trial of the Sword" challenge. Face an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another. Link starts the challenge without any equipment or weapons. When all the enemies in a room are defeated, Link proceeds to the next. Clear all the trials (about 45 rooms in total), and the true power of the Master Sword awakens.
Hero's Path Mode

This new map feature shows the path Link has walked through Hyrule from the last 200 hours of gameplay. Use the time tracker bar to see where you've spent the most time and where you have yet to explore. There's bound to be more adventures and maybe a shrine or two on the road less traveled.

Hard Mode

In Hard Mode, enemies gradually regain health, so take them out as quickly as possible. All enemies are also powered up by one level. For example, Red Bokoblins in Normal mode are now Blue Bokoblins. Enemies can also have higher maximum levels than they would in Normal mode. Look up, and you may also find enemies and treasure chests in the sky!

Travel Medallion

Somewhere in the world, there is a chest with a Travel Medallion inside. When you use this, you can register your current location as a fast travel point on the map. You can only register one location using the Travel Medallion.

More Armor

There are 8 treasure chests placed around Hyrule containing armor themed after previous The Legend of Zelda titles. Watch for tips as to the whereabouts of these chests as you travel around Hyrule.

Korok Mask

The Korok Mask is also hidden in a treasure chest somewhere in the world. While wearing this mask, it shakes whenever Link is near a hidden Korok location. There are 900 Koroks hiding in Hyrule, so this should help you discover quite a few of them.

New Zelda BotW Update 1.2.0 - voice toggle for all languages (text via system)

Dual language support.

"players will be able to experience the game in one of nine audio languages - with a different language used for on-screen text"

On the Switch:
Download the update, then go into the game's option. No need to change your system settings, just change the audio on the game's options. However, if you want the game's text to be in another language, you do need to change your language in the system's settings.

On WiiU, you need to download the audio pack before you can change the audio.

reminds me of Eventide Island. Looks really interesting and for me the highlight of DLC pack 1. I haven't bought it yet though.

Anyone bought it, or plan to?

I wonder if the other masks(outside of korok seed) will have special powers/effects also. hmm

I really like those callback armor pieces. Like...actually all of them.

shit that's a lot of tracking, would be neat to look at

haven't really planned on buying the DLC, though, and I'm not sure that has changed. I mean, I finished the game and am in no hurry to replay it.

I haven't played the game for 8 days now. Not sure why. ._. 60 hours and discovered like half of hyrule.

If it makes you feel better it's been a couple weeks since I've played the game. Been super busy.

Lol I haven't been playing Zelda as much as I used to either. :/ I just need 10 more hearts for the whole set. I haven't been exploring much so I dunno what Eventide is. I still have a lot of quests to finish and shrines to find. (Found a total of 64 so far) I'm trying to upgrade my armor for Ganon. Like, dragon horn hunting, for example. siiiiiiigh. It's becoming a nightmare for me. But, the DLC looks really nice.

Eventude island is south of hateno village. You know the beach area? Its on the lower end of the map in the middle of the water. You can get there by raft or Para sailing, though you need like 4/5th of an extra stamina wheel(or some stamina potions). Its by far my favorite shrine challenge.
