If you’re worried about ruining all of your best gear or spoiling any progress you have in your standard campaign for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it comes to fire up the hard mode DLC, take a breath. The new take on the game will afford players different save slots.
The hard mode is officially called Master Mode. You might not have noticed this, but the original quest in Breath of the Wild offers six save slots. Master Mode will have two.
What else will you see? There are no Red Bokoblins at all, the lowest tier of enemy. According to the mode’s description, “You’ll need to rethink your strategies too – foes will be better at detecting your approach and they’ll slowly recover health in battle.”
They even indicate that getting up high and battling enemies floating on planks will yield tougher fights and better loot.
Master Mode is part of the Master Trials DLC that’s set to launch on June 30, 2017.
