10 Best Fan Service DLC Packs In Video Games

9. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - The Champions' Ballad

Breath Of The Wild Champion's Ballad

Link on a motorcycle - need I say more? I should probably say more, here’s the other great stuff about it.

The Champions’ Ballad DLC has far more to offer than just a cool way to get around Hyrule. Despite offering an already massive open world, there weren’t a lot of people who got stuck into Breath of the Wild and didn’t want more of it. Luckily that’s where DLC comes in, and this particular offering included a new main quest encompassing four paths associated with each of the Champions, a bunch of side quests, new bosses, and items.

Much like the DLC for Borderlands 2, The Champions’ Ballad is proof that the developers knew what gamers wanted to see more of.

It offers up some excellent puzzle shrines, and a compelling continuation of the narrative that draws on the best narrative and mechanical elements of the base game. While its difficulty is something that deserves to be mentioned, it serves as something of a victory lap for fans who could handle it with ample rewards. Also, the motorcycle thing.

Epona is absolutely Link’s number one horse but one horse equals one horsepower and a motorcycle has many horsepower. Probably. That’s just math.
