Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s massive success have left fans speculating about the game’s DLC release. As of now, no DLC release date for Zelda ToTK has been announced. But we can expect DLC updates for the game to be released, similar to BOTW, because not only is TOTK a sequel to BOTW and is similar in many aspects, but it is also just as successful as BOTW, if not more.
In this article, we venture into the release dates of the DLCs of BOTW and predict possible release dates for the DLCs of Tears of the Kingdom. BOTW had two DLCs announced shortly after its release. So, how long will Nintendo take to release DLCs for TOTK, which already has 10 million sales worldwide in its first few days of release? Well, let’s find out.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (ToTK) DLC Release Date: When is it coming out
No Official Announcement
Nintendo has made no official announcement regarding the release dates of any DLC for Zelda ToTK. There has been no confirmation on whether the title will even receive a DLC or not.
DLC Content Likely To Be Released In The Future
However, as with BOTW, TOTK is likely to be Nintendo’s most-grossing release of the year. The game is probably on its way to being a nominee for Game of the Year. With such massive success in the bag, TOTK is highly likely to receive DLCs in the future.
DLCs for Breath of the Wild
Zelda BOTW was released in March 2017. Its first DLC was “Expansion Pass DLC Pack 1: The Master Trials” which was released in June 2017, three months after the initial release of the base game. The second DLC “Expansion Pass DLC Pack 2: The Champions’ Ballad” was released in Dec 2017, 9 months after the release of the base game.
Based on this, we can correlate and predict that Zelda TOTK might be getting the same treatment, with DLCs releasing within a few months of its release. One DLC might release in August or September 2023 and another might release in January or February 2024. But do note that this is just speculation from our side and not a confirmed update. So take this information with a pinch of salt.
New Challenges And Rewards
BOTW’s first DLC pack, “The Master Trials” introduced a horde mode with cranked-up difficulty, permanent upgrade mechanics to the Master Sword, and a few additional exploration tools. TOTK might also receive additional dungeon-style modes with harder difficulty and tougher enemies.
New Outfits and Armor
BOTW’s Champions Ballad DLC was a lore-expansion DLC, with new main story quests surrounding the Four Divine Beasts. This DLC also introduced new sets of armor and provided new effects when worn. Hence, TOTK might also receive similar treatment with the introduction of new armor, weapons, shrine puzzles, etc.
Potential Collaboration with Other Nintendo Releases
BOTW had collaborated with other Nintendo titles, such as Xenoblade Chronicles 2. A DLC side quest of the same name was introduced in BOTW that enabled players to acquire the Salvager Set. Hence, TOTK might also receive collaborations with other popular Nintendo titles in a DLC in the future.
Although there are many speculations and rumors relating to the DLCs for ToTK, none of them are confirmed. We will update this article once we get official information on the same.
