Even more tidbits from hearing and / or watching Treehouse's ongoing exploration segment: Naturally Link can set waypoints on the map to give you a sense of direction. You also don't necessarily have to run the whole time. We know Link will get a horse of course, but also you can just go to a high place and use a glider to travel a long way. Amusing: if you have a shield you can use it to surf down terrain (this will help wear it out though). As they've said, the game is about going where you want to and doing what you want to. Link can hunt animals for food (however, you don't have to). It does look as though Link's blue tunic is standard, rather than the traditional green outfit (maybe later?). There are camps with foes all over. At night they sleep, at day they're up. Sneaking in at night to ninja their stuff is an option. The weather is "dynamic". Rain will put out campfires. The cold will affect Link if you don't have things to keep you warm, and cold mountains will get colder at night. Link can climb tons of things, though he is limited by a stamina gauge like in the past. It's possible this is the same voice talking to Link in the opening of the game. Voice acting is a first, that's totally right. I believe the rumors were Link would be kept silent but other characters wouldn't be.
