PlayStation have revealed today that an upcoming free patch will be bringing new game plus as well as a bunch of new upgrades and tweaks to God Of War. The patch will go live on August 20th and if you have completed God Of War on any difficulty before that date a new game plus option will be waiting for you on the main menu.
The patch upgrades were inspired by feedback from God of War fans, players can expect higher level enemies, new gear upgrades and cinematic skipping! This is the biggest update the game has received yet, and it’s expected to provide quite the challenge.
New game plus will also allow players to:
Relive the journey of Kratos and Atreus with all of your previous armors, 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 armor 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.
If you are still yet to play God Of War, you should really check it out. It’s one of the best games to release this year, earning the highest score we’ve ever given a game in our review here. We’ll be jumping back in soon to give God Of War new game plus mode a try and finish earning that Platinum trophy.
