The mode will come to the game via an update “at a later date,” and will be completely free. Kratos and Atreus will restart the game with “many” of the upgrades earned from the previous title, including armor, pommels and talismans.
But New Game+ will also increase the game’s difficulty.
The reimagined game pairs an evolved version of series stalwart protagonist Kratos with his son, Atreus, in a third-person action game.
Considering the title already has a large amount of post-game, this will likely keep people playing well through the year.
The God of War New Game+ mode will be available on Aug. 20, 2018, according to the PlayStationBlog. There will be new customization options for armor and enchantments, as well as a brand new rarity level of equipment. Additionally, you will be able to skip through cinematics once the full game has been completed.
