Game Informer was able to spend some time with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild recently and shared gameplay with their time with the game. This includes extensive footage of Link exploring snow-covered landscapes; locations haven’t seen outside of small shots during trailers. Unlike past games, Link has a clothing mechanic, where specific outfits determine resistance to weather. So if you are wearing heavy metal armor you might attract lightning for example. When in cold locations, Link needs to be warm otherwise he loses health.
Seeing this mechanic in action via Game Informer gameplay clip is really cool and we will see more of this shown of when we get closer to the games March 3rd release on the Wii U & Nintendo Switch.
