God of War’s New Game+ Arrives on August 20

God of War New Game+ PS4 Play Station 4

God of War is one of the most critically acclaimed games this year, and Sony Santa Monica is working on a reason to revisit the frigid environs of Norse mythology.

The God of War New Game Plus option has been dated, and with it comes news about what people can expect after being the game and starting the journey over again.

The much-requested feature can only be unlocked after completing the epic daddy simulator, after which it'll be waiting for you once the game has updated. In order to play through the mode, you'll need to have completed the game on any difficulty - which is a requirement that should seem obvious.

The mode won't just toss players back into the game they just beat with some now-overpowered gear, though.

Test your skills against higher level enemies, some of which might even have a few unsafe new tricks up their sleeves!

As posted over on the PlayStation Blog, New Game Plus lets Kratos and Atreus keep their previous armors, enchantments, talismans, resources, and abilities.

Kaufman also promises that as well as being harder to take down, some of the bigger enemies will also have some new tricks up their blood-stained sleeves. There is even a new rarity level. Speaking of armors, you can collect a new type of resource called "Skap Slag" to give your gear the highest upgrade possible.

This is something fans have been asking for since God of War launched. Lastly, users can now skip all of the in-game cinematics in normal and New Game Plus after they've beaten the game once.
