At long last, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild expansion Champion's Ballad has a release date: today.

It's been a lengthy wait to find out, but our prayers were answered tonight during the Game Awards 2017 livestream.

And just after we'd caught our breath from the instant release - there was Link riding a motorbike.

The bike is named the Master Cycle Zero, Zelda series boss Eiji Aounuma explained live on stage. You'll use it to explore Hyrule in new ways - jumping over into previously inaccessible areas, perhaps? We don't have to wait long to find out.

The Champion's Ballad will chart Link's story with the original Champions - you know the ones who, er, aren't around anymore. Among other things shown were a series of new outfits, including Twilight Princess enemy Zant.


The DLC is only available as part of Breath of the Wild's Expansion Pass, which if you don't have already you probably should do. If not, though, Champion's Ballad may prompt your purchase - it is the meat in the Hearty Wild Fried Greens meal of the whole offering.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
