The player controls the main character,which is Link,(not Zelda!)and explores the open world. A unique thing about the breath of the wild is that when you finish the first main quest, you have a choice,you can go straight to the final bosses at Hyrule Castle with the terrible armor and weapons you have or you can go and explore the world and get stronger before you fight the final bosses at Hyrule Castle.
