The second major DLC in Pokemon Sword and Shield, arriving through the Expansion Pass, is called 'The Crown Tundra'. The Crown Tundra, one of two new adventures, is a new location within the Galar region where players can continue their path to glory as they aim to become a Pokemon Master; it will towards the end of 2020.
After releasing back in November 2019 Pokemon Sword and Shield it has already announced new content. The game was criticised initially for being "shorter" than previous titles, but with these expansions, it will greatly increase the gameplay that will exceed even the original games.

What Is The Crown Tundra?
The theme for this expansion is 'Exploration'.
Your next adventure sees you in the snow-swept realm of The Crown Tundra, where you'll be exploring snowy and mountainous regions.

As was the case in the previous DLC, you will find new Pokemon, characters and costumes as well as strange environments filled with temples.
You'll set out as the leader of an exploration team as you gear up for a brand new adventure.
As you can expect, you will be able to pick up from where they left off in the main game.
