Despite having a brief amount of time to play the first set of DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players are already pulling back the curtain to see what secrets and glitches are hiding in the update. While one YouTuber already completed the sixty levels within the Trial of the Sword challenge in one sitting, another player has found a hidden area that gives a peculiar look at the trials themselves.
Reddit user sharkystheshotty posted their strange discovery on the Nintendo Switch subreddit with picture evidence, seen above, that shows off Link standing in an open field in front of several large cubes that look like they house the interior of Shrines. When asked by a user how they managed to get to this purgatory of sorts, sharkystheshotty said they were “on trial three on the Medium trials and flew up near the chest on the floating platform and just went through a wall. Couldn’t get back in.. so I didn’t make it.” The user shared additional screenshots showing off more open fields and unusual floating water formations.
This “new area” is most likely is just uncleared data from building the trials expansion, as the open field seems to offer nothing more than a look at the challenge rooms from the outside.
Of course, glitches and exploits are routinely discovered whenever games launch, and Breath of the Wild has had many of its own, including players finding a way to lose the Master Sword and spawn dozens of enemies or items.
Real content provided by Nintendo in the first DLC packs, available for Switch and Wii U, also includes a new Hard mode for players hoping to revisit the open world of Hyrule with an added challenge. The Master Mode doesn’t disappoint either, as players have already discovered some of the game’s hardest enemies are waiting to kill Link right when he starts the game.
