No kingdom. No memories. After a 100-year slumber, Link wakes up alone in a world he no longer remembers. Now the legendary hero must explore a vast and dangerous land and regain his memories before Hyrule is lost forever.
Armed only with what he can scavenge, Link sets out to find answers and the resources needed to survive.
Explore the landscape of Hyrule any way you like. Climb up towers and mountain peaks in search of new destinations, then set your own path and plunge into the wilderness.
By land, air and sea
- Towers - Before Link ventures out into the wild, he can climb to the top of a tower to survey the land.
- Shrines - There are more than 100 Shrines of Trials scattered throughout Hyrule. Link must solve the puzzles inside to prove his heroism and earn rewards.
- Villages - Link visits many different villages on his journey, each with a unique look and feel.
- Stables - Stables aren’t just for horses anymore. Link can also rest there to restore his health or prepare food or Elixirs before his next adventure.
With this much real estate to explore, Link will need some help in his travels. Luckily, there are plenty of transportation options to unlock. Link can cover a lot of ground quickly on horseback, navigate the waters of Hyrule on a raft, or hit the slopes and surf down a mountain on his shield. And the sky’s the limit when Link soars through the sky with his paraglider
Fight for your Kingdom
When Link first wakes up, he's unarmed and defenceless. Relying on his wits and resourcefulness, though, he can acquire many different weapons to use in combat. However, these items will wear out over time, so he must always be on the lookout for more.
There's more to fighting than just weapons, of course. Link will also have to learn a variety of different attacks – like high-flying bow shots and how to handle explosives – in order to prevail.
