New Game Plus lets you replay the game with your late-game unlocks and weapons, and tougher enemies compared to a normal replay. God of War Ragnarok has not featured the New Game Plus mode yet.

Details regarding how New Game Plus will work in God of War Ragnarök haven’t been disclosed yet. However, here’s how it functioned in the previous game.

  • Replay Kratos and Atreus’ adventure with all earned equipment and abilities intact, including armor, talismans, enchantments, runic attacks, skills, and weapons.
  • Discover enhanced customization choices with more potent iterations of present armors, talismans, and enchantments.

  • Gather scrap slag, a novel resource to create perfect rarity-level gear with the help of our blacksmithing team.
  • On the “Give Me a Challenge+” difficulty, enemies can now become elite, introducing a fresh layer to battles.

And many more. You can replay the New Game Plus experience to your heart’s content by initiating another NG+ game from a completed one.

When is God of War Ragnarok New Game Plus mode releasing?

  • Santa Monica, the studio responsible for God of War, tweeted that New Game Plus would be launched in Spring 2023. Although we weren’t given a specific date.
  • Given that it’s almost March, and the studio has only given a vague release window of “Spring,” we anticipate that New Game Plus will be launched in April at the earliest.

Your sole alternative is to begin the experience anew, maybe choosing a higher difficulty level if you seek a more arduous trial. Consequently, there is no additional loot to pursue on subsequent playthroughs. Instead, all the rarest gear is obtainable during a single journey.

Kratos’ maximum power level in Ragnarok is currently limited to nine, achieved only when all weapons, armor, and modifications are upgraded to their fullest. If New Game Plus becomes available, there’s a high possibility of surpassing this limit.
