The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Guide: How To Access Master Trials DLC

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has finally received its first official DLC called Master Trials. This DLC is available to those who have purchased the Season Pass for the game and in addition to offering a new difficulty option, the DLC also finally updates the Master Sword so that it can no longer feel limited in power.

The DLC will feature Master Trials that is a wave-based challenge with 45 different rooms to clear in all. You will start with default weapons and armor and get new items as you clear each challenge. It is obviously aimed at those who are skilled enough in combat and while the DLC can be attempted by those who have already finished the game, you can also attempt it if you are currently in the middle of it.

How To Access Master Trials DLC

During any point in the game, you can return to Korok Forest, North of Hyrule Castle and East of Death Mountain. To start the Master Trials, you will need to locate the place where you get your Master Sword which is in front of the Great Deku Tree. Once there, you will have to return the Master Sword and put it back in the Pedestal to being the challenge.

How To Unlock True Power of Master Sword

The true power of the Master Sword can only be unlocked by completing the Master Trials. This means you will have to beat all 45 rooms in the wave-based challenge from this new DLC. There are plenty of puzzles in the rooms and each wave is divided in a set of 3 rooms so you can attempt to tackle all challenges in one go or take a break in between them. Once you are done with the Master Trials, you will unlock the true power of the Master Sword which means you don’t have to wait for the sword to recharge each time you use it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U.
