Spoilers for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity below. Please read at your own risk.
Upon finishing the final chapter in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, the player unlocks a unique game mode that is reminiscent of Breath of the Wild‘s random event, the Blood Moon. In Breath of the Wild, the Blood Moon re-spawned defeated enemies, mini-bosses, and found items. In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, the Blood Moon gives the player the opportunity to try a more challenging battlefield that will net the player better rewards in comparison to the regular battles. So, did you enjoy the greater challenge of Blood Moon battlefields?
Personally, I did, though admittedly the Blood Moon was not much of a challenge on some of the lower level scenarios that you play at the start of the game. The Blood Moon battlefields feature harder enemies to defeat, which in turn does put a strain on your weapons. These battles also have a higher level recommendation, so before you play be sure that your character are up to par. One must be prepared to partake in these challenges because the Blood Moon difficulty applied to some of the later chapters is downright hard, especially if you’re playing alone. The risk is definitely worth the reward though; the experience and weapon drops that you get are far better than what you get playing through the scenarios normally.
I enjoyed having more of a challenge on the later chapters and even on the easier chapters too, despite it not being too much more of a challenge on the early chapters. The Blood Moon battlefields are just another cool unlockable after the main story that make grinding through Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity so much fun! Some of the other hidden challenges in the game benefit from the better weapons dropped during Blood Moon battlefields, so be sure to try the challenges out and see what rewards you can reap.
