Breath of the Wild Dominates The Game Awards 2017

Posted December 10, 2017

The most anticipated moment came and we finally knew who won the game of the year at The Game Awards 2017 and, as many expected, the night culminated on a Nintendo triumph as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won the Best Game of the Year Award.

Though fanboys like to make it out like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft are all enemies, this is undoubtedly not the truth. If you want to re-experience what it was like to watch the show, check out our Game Awards liveblog. Then, on Thursday evening, "Breath of the Wild" producer Eiji Aonuma announced its sudden availability during The Game Awards - an annual game awards show held in Los Angeles.

Fans were treated to several "big reveals", including teasers for Bayonetta 3 (which will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive), a video game adaptation of World War Z (Saber Interactive), and Death Stranding, the much-anticipated title from Kojima that features the voice of actor Norman Reedus.

The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack 2 marks the second and final DLC update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Or has it been carried to success thanks to a familiar name brand, and the fact that it simultaneously kicked off the Nintendo Switch, earning the game more goodwill than it might have otherwise enjoyed if it had only been released on the horrendously unpopular Wii U console?

Thankfully, picking up the new Royal Guard Uniform in Breath of the Wild's Champions' Ballad DLC is nowhere near as complicated as fulfilling the requirements to unlock the new Master Cycle Zero motorcycle.

The Ancient Bridle and Saddle can also be found in hidden chests. To get the new content in "Breath of the Wild", you must first purchase the expansion pass for the game; it costs $20, and gets you the previously-released expansion as well as the new one. It beat games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and family favorite Super Mario Odyssey.
