Possible Future DLC and Expansion Pass Speculation

Note: The following section includes speculation, and may not reflect the actual content of the DLC

New Playable Characters

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Playable Characters
The previous Hyrule Warriors game has a total of 32 playable characters, some of which were added later on as part of an update or as a DLC (with all included in the Definitive Edition release on Switch).

There are currently 18 characters in the base game, but with the announcement of the expansion pass, we can expect a roster increase soon. Given the image shown from the official Youtube video, we can expect that at least Purah and Robbie will be made playable, and we might have a chance to play as other characters from the Zelda series as well!

New Costumes

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Attire Menu

The previous Hyrule Warriors game included additional costumes that the playable characters can wear. These are usually attires seen in other Zelda games.

The upcoming DLC has confirmed a new costume for those who pre-order the game!

But we can look forward to costumes for other playable characters, since most attires are simply armor for Link from BotW.

New Battles and Challenges

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Mipha and Zelda
In the previous Hyrule Warriors game, there are 5 story episodes, which add additional lore to the game, and a Boss Challenge mode.

The expansion pass has confirmed our prior speculation that the DLC will add more challenges and stages.
