Age of Calamity Expansion Pass is group of paid downloadable content (DLC) for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Announced during a Nintendo Direct on February 17th, 2021, it consists of two waves, released on separate dates for a single price of $19.99 USD. Preorders became available on May 28, 2021.


Purchase Bonus

Purchases came with a new weapon (Prototype Ancient Short Sword) and outfit (Prototype Ancient Helm, Prototype Ancient Cuirass, Prototype Ancient Greaves) for Link, which were available for download before the two full waves were released.

Owing to an eShop error, users in Europe were briefly able to download the purchase bonus and equip them without having purchased the DLC. Nintendo announced that they would be allowed to keep them until the release of Wave 1 of the DLC, but would need to purchase the Expansion Pass to continue using them thereafter[1]
