How to Play the New Zelda DLC Right Now

It received critical acclaim and even won several Game of the Year awards.

Nintendo surprised everyone over the night by releasing the second major DLC expansion for the incredibly popular Switch and Wii:U game: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

That said, 2017 was a pretty spectacular year for gaming (leaving aside all that messy business with loot boxes).

Nintendo was quick to reciprocate after being showered with praise, giving back to its fans by releasing announcements for the future of the Bayonetta series as well as the unveiling of a new DLC for the freshly crowned Game of the Year available Thursday night. Yet clearly, in the many versions of Link the team went through before designing him and this version of Hyrule for Breath of the Wild, a motorcycle being available to ride in Hyrule has been on the minds of BotW's development team since its early iterations.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild competed with great games like Super Mario Odyssey, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Persona 5 and PUBG; true heavyweights in the industry during 2017.

So did "Breath of the Wild" genuinely deserve to win? It sadly debuted at just the wrong time to be able to overthrow Nintendo's current reigning champion.

As expected, Nintendo released a new update for Breath of the Wild on the Switch to support the new expansion. If you want to re-experience what it was like to watch the show, check out our Game Awards liveblog. The Game Awards aren't legally binding, and while recognition is nice, it doesn't matter if "NieR: Automata" or any other game got overlooked in all the commotion surrounding "Breath of the Wild".

Unless your favorite game this year is "Star Wars: Battlefront II", in which case you're probably wrong.
