Enough dawdling, let’s jump off the Great Plateau and paraglide in our Breath of the Wild wallpaper guide.
A great adventure awaits…
The opening moments of Breath of the Wild are unlike any other game. Seconds after Link wakes up from a 100-year slumber, he’s out into the open world of Hyrule, looking out over adventure as far as the eye can see. Not only that, but you can go wherever you want. The almost daunting scale or Hyrule is part of what makes this opening so mesmerising, so relive those iconic moments with this beautiful wallpaper.
This official artwork is a stunning recreation of the Master Sword, waiting for Link to pull it from its plinth in Great Hyrule Forest. For many players, reaching this area is treacherous, and retrieving the Master Sword takes a lot of heart. However, the blue blade is one of the best weapons in the game (obviously), becoming even more powerful if you complete the Trial of the Sword from the Breath of the Wild DLC.
A tranquil retreat – @Jeremy Fenske
It might seem like Breath of the Wild is all about action, but the game also presents a quiet and sometimes sombre loneliness. Here, artist Jeremy Fenske paints a slower moment in this action adventure, as Link and his horse take a minute to rest at a stream.
A horseback attack @Eternal Legend
Alright, sometimes Breath of the Wild IS about action. This dynamic piece from artist Eternal Legend shows Link on horseback, barreling through the landscape of Hyrule. One of those pesky Guardians is right behind him, ready to fire a laser (that sounds haunts my nightmares), and even the spectre of Calamity Ganon is lurking in the skies above. Alright, I need to start another BotW playthrough.
Duel of the peaks @Surendra Rajawat
The land of Hyrule has countless mesmerising and iconic landmarks. After Link escapes the Great Plateau, he explores the surrounding area, and the imposing Duelling Peaks could be one of the first things you see. The peaks are piercing the sky, and not only serve as a great way to track your location but also a challenge. Good luck to players trying to find the shrines on the tip of each peak!
It’s time to climb
Can an image give you goosebumps? Nintendo itself created this iconic key art, an epic glimpse into Breath of the Wild’s massive world. It’s still mind-blowing that Link can climb any surface in Breath of the Wild, and this art perfectly conveys both the scale of the world and the excitement this feature brings.
Alright, folks, that’s all the Breath of the Wild wallpaper we have for now! But, if you need even more amazing images for your devices, be sure to check out our guide to The Witcher 3 wallpaper next.
