The first DLC package is already available with the purchase of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC release date: DLC Pack 1 details

The next additional content package, DLC Pack 1, will come out at some point this summer, though there's no a definitive release date as yet. It will include a "Cave of Trials" challenge, a hard difficulty mode and an additional map feature. Yes, you'll have to shell out cash for a more challenging mode, but that's sure to give Breath of the Wild even more of an impressive shelf life. 

Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC release date: DLC Pack 2 details

DLC Pack 2 is the second package of content for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and it will include a new original story, an additional dungeon and a list of challenges players will be able to tackle. It's set to launch in late 2017.

If you're interested in picking up these additional content packs, you'll have to pay for the Expansion Pass, as you cannot purchase the content piecemeal. Luckily it's only $20, with quite a bit of content you can tackle once you think you've found all there is to see in the land of Hyrule.
