Tears of the Kingdom Releases Update 1.2.0
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has recently launched patch 1.2.0. The game has been available for a few months now and has been well-received by Switch owners. Tears of the Kingdom has received positive feedback for its improvements on Breath of the Wild‘s concepts and game world. However, like most games, patches are necessary to maintain balance, enjoyment, and fix any bugs that may affect the gameplay.
While some exploits and errors provide a humorous experience, others completely change the game’s difficulty, making it either too hard or too easy. This is the case with an exploit in Tears of the Kingdom that allows players to have an infinite number of items. Most of these glitches have been fixed in previous patches, but it is not uncommon for new issues to arise with updates. With the latest 1.2.0 patch, more issues have been resolved.
Update 1.2.0 includes fixes that are not fully detailed but are said to enhance the gameplay experience of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Players will be pleased to know that a fix has been provided for those who were unable to progress past a certain point in certain main quests. Several quests were affected by this issue, and after installing the patch, players can now continue their journey. Additionally, launching the game from specific Switch News channels allows players to receive in-game items as rewards.

One significant glitch in Tears of the Kingdom allows Link to clip below the map when using the Ancient Blade. While not very common, this problem can still occur and lead to frustrating gameplay, and it does not seem to have been addressed in Update 1.2.0.
Nevertheless, despite the current issues in the game, Tears of the Kingdom continues to be a top-selling title. Many Switch owners are eager to explore the new areas in Hyrule, and they continue to discover new secrets, glitches, and creations. Players will have to wait and see what improvements future

Tears of the Kingdom has received a lot of positive feedback for the way it improves on Breath of the Wild‘s concepts and game world. Still, as with most games, patches are necessary to maintain balance and enjoyment, as well as fix any bugs that may affect the gameplay.
