God of War's New Game+ mode gets a release date

Sony's Santa Monica Studio is giving players a great reason to replay the PS4 exclusive when it launches New Game Plus. "Remember, to access all the greatness of New Game+, you'll need to complete the story campaign of God of War on any difficulty".

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. The update also allows players to skip cutscenes once they've played through the game. As for what else will be included in this update, Santa Monica Studios stated that there will be new gear, resources, more hard enemies with "trick up their sleeves", and the ability to now skip through cinematics - but seriously though, who would do that?

Details and a release date for the promised God of War New Game+ have been provided by Sony.

Test your skills against higher level enemies; some of which might even have a few new tricks up their sleeves! Assuming you've done that, you can dive into New Game Plus, which allows you to start with "all of your previous armors, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities on the difficulty of your choosing", according to a post on the PlayStation Blog today. It'll also feature tougher enemies with switched up attacks, a new tier of armour rarity to discover, and a new resource called Skap Slag you can use to fully upgrade your equipment. Make sure to play around with the new armors and enchantments, as well, to explore the new customization options.
