The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild departs from most games in the The Legend of Zelda series, as it features an open-world environment which is twelve times larger than the overworld in Twilight Princess, with less emphasis on defined entrances and exits to areas. Similar to the original The Legend of Zelda, the player is placed into the games world with very little instruction, and is allowed to explore freely at their own pace.
Players control Link, who can jump and climb almost any surface, and can find various items in the world, including weapons, shields, clothing, and food that can be eaten to restore health. Weapons break after excessive use, but many have multiple uses, for example, tree branches can be used to light fires, and shields can be used as makeshift snowboards. Throughout the game, Link possesses a piece of technology known as the Sheikah Slate, which provides players with a map and allows Link to create waypoints and investigate enemy stats. By discovering various runes, the Slate can be upgraded with various powers, including creating bombs, controlling magnetic objects, and stopping time around objects and enemies. Players keep track of both main and side quests given to them through the use of a quest log, which is called an Adventure Log within the game. If the player fulfills certain conditions, they are able to unlock an alternative ending of the game.
