The expansion will be released individually and as part of a $29.99 / £26.99 expansion pass, which will grant access to second add-on The Crown Tundra (due fall 2020).
Each expansion will add new environments, new (and old) Pokémon and fresh player customisation options.
The expansions will include the addition of more than 200 legacy Pokémon. Players who don’t purchase the DLC will be able to obtain these via other means such as trading.
The Isle of Armor features a Pokémon Dojo where players become an apprentice. Sword and Shield players will each train with a different partner.
Key to the add-on’s story is the new legendary Pokémon Kubfu, which will evolve into two different styles, according to Game Freak.
Meanwhile, The Crown Tundra is set in a snowy environment and focused more on exploration. This DLC pack will add a new co-op mode which will have players exploring underground Pokémon dens featuring previous (and new) legendary monsters – some of which players will be able to catch.
Both of the new maps allow for seamless exploration like the original game’s Wild Area.
