Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Expansion Pass Wave 1 release date revealed

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is about to release the first piece of its Expansion Pass.


Tuesday's Nintendo E3 Direct looked to wrap up with The Legend of Zelda. No, not that one. It's not Breath of the Wild 2. No, instead it's the Expansion Pass for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a first look at its gameplay, and what's coming.

Wave 1 of the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Expansion Pass is called Pulse of the Ancients and will add the playable Battle-Tested Guardian, for anybody looking to blow enemies away in style. For existing characters, Link can pick up the new Flail weapon type and Zelda can ride around on the Master Cycle.

That's not all that's coming with the Expansion Pass. Wave 2: Guardian of Remembrance will release before the end of November and will add new character vignettes, new stages, an even bigger roster, and new battle skills for the existing characters. More information on this piece of the Expansion Pass is expected at a later date.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity's Expansion Pass will kick off with Wave 1 on Friday, June 18. Both pieces of the Expansion Pass can be purchased for $19.99 USD. More information on the expansions can be found on the Legend of Zelda website. This is just one of many E3 2021 announcements from the last week, so be sure to follow Shacknews for anything you might have missed.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
