A YouTuber has offered a ten thousand dollar reward to anyone who can successfully create a multiplayer mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The content creator, who goes by the YouTube handle PointCrow and runs a channel featuring a range of Zelda-based content, has announced a five-figure reward on Twitter for anyone who can make a Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod.
I’M PUTTING A $10,000 BOUNTY ON THE CREATION OF A BREATH OF THE WILD MULTIPLAYER MOD

While cash promises can often be found around social media, it seems that PointCrow is pretty serious when it comes to getting the mod made. Alongside a tweet notifying fans of the mod-based bounty, the creator has laid out a number of stipulations that people must follow in order to claim the prize.
While a full list of terms and conditions can be found in the tweet above, highlights include the fact that the mod must be playable anywhere on the map, grant PoinCrow access to the mod exclusively a week or two prior to release and be free to play for anyone who wishes to access it. Initially, the terms of the bounty also stated that the mod would need to host multiplayer for up to four people, however, in a recent update to the terms, PointCrow lowered this requirement meaning that it now only needs to support two players.
For those hoping to claim the $10,000 reward, it should be noted that PointCrow has also stipulated that the mod must be finished at least two months before the release date of Breath of the Wild’s sequel. As Breath of the Wild 2 is currently aiming for a release window sometime in 2022, technically that means the bounty could already have expired – though it’s far more likely that you’ve got a good few months still left on the clock.
