Koei Tecmo have revealed some more information surrounding the upcoming Master Quest DLC pack for their newest title, Hyrule Warriors. As if the game didn’t offer enough content, there will soon be more playable characters, more characters skins, more weapons, and more additions to various game modes.
Before you continue, please be aware that the following information and footage may contain minor spoilers for those who don’t wish to see the new campaign missions, though very few plot details are shared here.
Still reading? Okay, then!
According to Siliconera, Cia’s new scenario shows “how she meets is a side story of how she meets Volga and Wizzro, and how they close in on Hyrule Kingdom.” It will “will have five episodes, which will conclude with something waiting for her at the end.”
Cia utilizes her dark staff as a weapon, which appears to also morph into a whip of sorts. But it doesn’t stop there: Cia can call on the help of various Dark Link figures to unleash massive amounts of damage to any enemies in their way.
Volga’s weapon of choice is a type of staff, with a large blade on the end of it. His staff looks very useful for clearing out a wide range of enemies very quickly. What is even more interesting is when he morphs into his dragon-like form, which unleashes some of his finishing combo sets.
Wizzro is much different than the previous two villains. While both Cia and Volga focus more on physical attacks, Wizzro’s attacks seem based on magic and ranged attacks. This will add even more depth to the play styles within the cast of characters.
As for fighting with Epona, the player can utilize Link’s weapon, as well all of Epona’s legs. What is most entertaining is watching Epona perform a special move and leap into the air, in order to drop down on the unsuspecting enemy below. It’s quite the spectacle!
And, of course, Epona will be a playable “weapon.”
Cia’s alternate costume, highlighted below, is quite a contradiction to what we’ve seen of her so far. In fact, she resembles the “White Witch” Lana more so than her normal dark side. Regardless, it is still awesome to see such a difference with the character skin!
As for Dark Link, the character skin is fairly straightforward. But, who isn’t excited to play as Dark Link?!
As stated above, Cia will have a complete overhaul with her latest DLC skin.
Lana will receive a similar costume; both will come in a set of two, titled the “Guardian of Time” costumes.
If videos aren’t your thing, you can also view some screenshots of the DLC’s addition to Adventure Mode, shared on NeoGAF.
Adventure Mode will now include a special set of “Master Quest Rules”, which won’t let you recover health or use items. Using these, players can acquire new powerful weapons for Cia, Volga, and Wizzro.
A new full challenge-style map will be added in Adventure Mode.
In addition, Cia will also get her own scenario added into Legend Mode.
The cost of the Season Pass for Hyrule Warriors was fairly high, when compared to any DLC Nintendo has created before, but with the amount of content packed into the DLC, they are shaping up to be quite the deal for any who choose to purchase them. The first pack of DLC to arrive will be on October 16.
