Here's Everything New In God of War's 'New Game+' Mode
OMG (OF WAR)!
A whole new mode is coming to Sony's smash hit God of War later this month: New Game+.
We knew the mode was planned, but now we have a release date - August 20, 2018.
"This is easily our biggest update to God of War," Aaron Kaufman said on the PS Blog. "We’re certainly looking forward to seeing who completes Give Me God of War New Game+ mode first. That’s a feat! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your patience and allowing us the development time necessary to create New Game+. It arrives August 20th."
Driven by fan feedback, the New Game+ mode includes new gear, more difficult enemies, and the ability to skip those cinematics (although they're so awesome, we don't know why you would, even if you've seen it already!)
Here's what else we get:
Relive the journey of Kratos and Atreus with all of your previous armours, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities on the difficulty of your choosing.
Test your skills against higher level enemies; some of which might even have a few new tricks up their sleeves!
Unique to New Game+ is a brand new rarity level of equipment to craft and upgrade! Collect ‘Skap Slag’, a new resource to upgrade your gear to the best of the best from our finest blacksmiths.
Play the game in a whole new way by exploring new customisation options with extremely powerful new armour sets and enchantments.
Finally, get right back into the action with the newly added ability to skip through cinematics in both normal and New Game+ modes once a full play through has been completed.
