Fans Offered $10,000 To Create Multiplayer Breath Of The Wild Mod

Fans Offered $10,000 To Create Multiplayer Breath Of The Wild Mod
Nintendo

Grab your gliders and get ready to tackle Calamity Ganon all over again, as we head back to save Hyrule one more time. We're obviously talking about Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and although the game is now four years old, one Zelda superfan has an amazing offer to tempt you back.

Most of us might be looking ahead to the upcoming release of Breath of the Wild 2 in 2022, but that doesn't mean we should just chuck the OG into the Death Mountain volcano. There's been a renewed interest in BotW thanks to modding, and now, YOU could be the lucky recipient of $10,000 if you can mod multiplayer into the beloved game.

What Is The Breath Of The Wild Modding Offer?

Posting on Twitter, popular Zelda YouTuber PointCrow has offered a hefty $10,000 prize fund to anyone who can add a multiplayer mod to Breath of the Wild. Sceptics are obviously unconvinced by the offer, but by the looks of it, PointCrow is actually legitimately offering this huge sum. 

Be warned though, there are some terms and conditions if you fancy yourself as something of a Great Deku Tree. Conditions include the mod must be playable anywhere on the sprawling BotW map, it has to be free-to-play to others, and PointCrow needs at least a week's exclusivity access - presumably to check it out.

The rules have already changed, and although the OG terms said it needed to support four players, PointCrow says the Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod only needs to work for two players. Not everyone was convinced, one cynic wrote, "Just letting you know that $10k isn’t nearly what it would take to make a mod like this. You have to rewrite a significant portion of the game for that to work, which would cost millions to do. It’s great that you’re willing to pay someone, but $10k is just pocket change here."

Can You Mod Multiplayer Into Breath Of The Wild?

The fact PointCrow is offering such a large prize fund suggests they might think it's possible to mod multiplier into Breath of the Wild. Then again, the hype being generated by the competition could earn them that sum back and then some. Finally, the clock is ticking. PointCrow says the mod has to be finished at least two months before Breath of the Wild 2 launches at some point in 2022

There's still no concrete release date for BotW 2, but if you want to claim PointCrow's booty, you'd better get cracking. Although Nintendo makes it notoriously hard to mod its games, the BotW community has taken it in its stride. From the classic of putting Thomas the Tank Engine in the game, you can also swap Link for Waluigi as justice for his Smash Bros. exile, and even a Super Mario Odyssey mod for the ultimate crossover.

Whether a Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod is possible remains to be seen, but if some crafty coder can break open Breath of the Wild, imagine a Hyrule Warriors-inspired game where you can suit up as Daruk and beat the living snot out of Kass - someone needs to make it happen.
