Zelda Breath of the Wild ‘The Master Trials’ DLC guide and walkthrough

New armor and items, Trial of the Sword, Master Mode, the Travel Medallion and the Hero’s Path

The Master Trials, the first expansion to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, brings a new gameplay mode (Master Mode), a horde mode-style challenge (Trial of the Sword), a couple new tools for exploring Hyrule (the Travel Medallion and Hero’s Path) and some new outfits and armor. In Polygon’s guide to The Master Trials, we’ll show you how to get all of the new items and conquer Breath of the Wild’s biggest challenges yet.

We’ve organized this table of contents based on the categories of additions in the DLC. The headings above each bulleted list will take you to an overview of everything that’s underneath them. If you’re looking for help with just one item, click on its text and you’ll find a specialized guide.

Great Plateau Season Pass bonus chests locations

When you purchase the Season Pass for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s DLC, you’ll get a “Purchase Bonus” of three chests. The screen you see when you first fire up the game with the DLC installed will tell you that they’re scattered around the Great Plateau. In our Breath of the Wild DLC bonus chests guide, we’ll show you how to find them all.
