Who Won Big at the 2017 Game Awards?

Breath Of The Wild’s Second Major DLC Has A Bike And Releases Tonight Shannon Grixti

Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the night's big victor as it took home the coveted Game of the Year Award despite facing stiff competition from titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Persona 5 and Horizon Zero Dawn. These four champions are the ones who were defeated in a grand battle in Hyrule exactly a century before the game's main story starts. One of those Link's was a more realistic, bike-riding version of the character. The motorcycle blends the mystical and technological aesthetic very well.

Players who want to play "The Champions Ballad" and ride around Hyrule in a Master Cycle Zero need not wait long.

Gamers were so excited by the announcement during the Game Awards, they forgot they were being broadcast from the west coast, so "tonight" wasn't fast enough.

The second major expansion to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" surprise-launched overnight.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild competed with great games like Super Mario Odyssey, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Persona 5 and PUBG; true heavyweights in the industry during 2017.

The second expansion for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has finally hit Switch and Wii U, giving Link new armor, new quests, and. a motorcycle?

Winners in most of the show's categories were decided through a vote split 90/10 between The Game Awards' jury and TGA website visitors. The game was praised for its open-ended nature and for its physics-driven gameplay.

Upon release, it was received as one of the best games in the 30-year-old Zelda franchise and therefore one of the best games of all time. The first expansion content, "The Master Trials", offered challenges aimed at dedicated players.
