'God of War's' New Game+ arrives on August 20th

'God of War's' New Game+ arrives on August 20th

Today, Sony Santa Monica revealed when New Game Plus will arrive, and it's going to be here in just a couple of weeks.

In order to access New Game+ in God of War, you'll need to complete the story campaign on any difficulty.

All things considered, it's great to see Santa Monica Studio following through with yet another solid piece of post-launch support for God of War, as director Cory Barlog initially wasn't promising New Game Plus would even make it into the title.

Unique to New Game+ is a brand new rarity level of equipment to craft and upgrade! If you already did, New Game+ will be ready and waiting for you on August 20th once you've patched. It's not entirely clear whether that means that we'll see new enemies on top of old ones, but the team did suggest that numerous game's old enemies will be packing some "new tricks up their sleeves". Speaking of armors, you can collect a new type of resource called "Skap Slag" to give your gear the highest upgrade possible. New Game+ will also sport new armor sets and enchantments.

This update has resulted in a bit of a wait for fans who rushed through God of War (I don't blame 'em), but it sounds like the time was put to good use. Will you be picking up your Leviathan Axe once again for New Game+ in God of War?

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.
