Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been out for four years now, but fans are still finding new ways to enjoy what is still one of the best open-world RPGs of the last decade.
Like any game that sticks around for long enough, a big part of that continued enjoyment is based in the modding community.
As amazing as Breath of the Wild is, there are some mechanics that could use a little tweaking. If you’re in the business of nitpicking those mechanical idiosyncrasies, then this mod is for you. For example, Rebalance makes loot proportional to enemy strength, reconfigures armor and enemy power for a “flatter difficulty curve” during the course of the game, and gives weapons and bows more varied characteristics.
Let’s be real, Breath of the Wild’s soundtrack is flawless, so to modify the game’s music in any way seemingly borders on unnecessary — that is unless you modify the game with this “faithful” music pack. Are these tunes “better”? Probably not. Are they pretty damn enjoyable? Just have a listen for yourself.
Perhaps even more jarring than changing the music is removing the music entirely. Though drastic, this mod helps bring a whole new ambiance to Breath of the Wild, kind of like watching a movie scene with and without a soundtrack. More practically it also helps reduce the game file size and gives an ideal noise level for screen recording.
