The first set of DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available, and despite its Trial of the Sword challenge touted as an experience only for seasoned players, a streamer has already completed the quest.
The four-and-half-hour stream by AbdallahSmash026 gives a full play through of the Trial of the Sword, which seems to be packed with progressively more difficult enemies after the next. On top of it all, Link will be forced only to use equipment and items that he picks up within the dungeon, leaving all of his accumulated inventory behind.
Despite being underground, the variety of rooms makes the entire trial feel as fantastical as possible, as Link can move from one floor that looks exactly like a Shrine to a dark space filled with trees and grass only lit by torch light. Abdallah holds his own with the quest, but, of course, as the time goes on his stamina decreases. During the entire run, the viewers warned Abdallah of a Golden Lynel waiting in the final room, which evidently gave him anxiety. The portion of flying Guardians repetitively spawning was his darkest point, but thankfully, he powered through to claim his prize of the permanently powered Master Sword. It could have been a trolling move, but there was no Golden Lynel to defeat, but the trial seemed hard enough without it.
As Abdallah points out in the opening of his stream, The Master Trials DLC is packed with more new content apart from the Trial of the Sword, including a Hard Mode, new armor, and the quest to find a Travel Medallion, which will make exploration even more in-depth. While the second set of DLC and its contents remain a mystery, Nintendo revealed four new Amiibo of each of the Champions—Mipha, Dark, Revali, and Urbosa—will launch at a later date to add even more content to the game.
