   However, In Breath of the Wild, there are almost no fixed order of attack, so you can enjoy the game as you like. For example, you can prepare a lot of weapons and items well before attacking a dungeon. On the other hand, if you want to see the story as quickly as possible, you can attack dungeons one after the other. In fact, for experts, it is possible to fight the final BOSS after the tutorial. As you can see, there is a very high degree of freedom. Besides this, there are lots of other situations you can feel high level of freedom.
