Gameplay

The game is designed to be a large open world game with the emphasis on giving you various things you can do. There are various tasks you can do including story missions, side missions, favors, enemy camps, Hylian Towers and monster contracts. Main and side missions are as you expect, favors are very small things you can do for money and exp including cleaning a house or finding a certain item, enemy camps are bases that various types of enemies hide out in, Hylian Towers are giant towers usually guarded by some sort of enemies or natural obstacles that give you more of the map and monster contracts are missions that force you to hunt down a buffed enemy for cash and experience. The game ditches the stamina and weapon breaking mechanic for various purchasable or findable weapons and armor that can give Link boosts as some require a certain level to wear.
