Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Is Discounted At Amazon For Black Friday – GameSpot

Black Friday 2020 has brought plenty of deals on games that released within the past month or so, including Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Gears Tactics. But the latest Black Friday deal we’ve stumbled across is on a game that launched just last week. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is available at Amazon for $50, which is a nice $10 savings off the price of the brand-new Nintendo Switch exclusive.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a spinoff prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It tells the story 100 years prior to the events of Breath of the Wild, chronicling the Great Calamity that leads to the prolonged period of darkness and ruin across Hyrule.

While Age of Calamity shares the same map as Breath of the Wild, it’s a linear adventure with a standard mission structure. Developed by Koei Tecmo, Age of Calamity follows the tradition of its predecessor Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. Despite the fact that it ties into Breath of the Wild, don’t expect a traditional Zelda experience. Age of Calamity is a hack-and-slash adventure that regularly sees Link and pals fighting off hundreds of enemies at once.

I’ve been playing Age of Calamity since launch and have really enjoyed it so far. Each character has a unique playstyle, and the combat offers a great mix of button-mashing and strategy.
