New game plus mode won’t be a first for God of War when it comes to Ragnarok. 2018’s God of War received its own new game plus mode about four months after its April 2018 launch date. In that entry, the feature allowed players to start the game over from the beginning, but keeping their earned equipment and abilities. The mode also unlocked new crafted armor sets for the father-son pair and refreshed the attack patterns of the Valkyries. Even new content, like timed Realm Tears, was introduced to challenge experienced players.

Besides God of War Ragnarok, new game plus modes are a common feature in games. They allow players to repeat content while benefitting from the effort they put in completing the game the first time. New game plus modes can also be used to heighten challenge for veteran players who “have it all.” For example, the new game plus mode in Demon’s Souls features significantly strengthened enemies, and on the first few cycles is considered more difficult than the base game overall.

God of War Ragnarok is available for the PS4 and PS5. The original game is available on the PS4 and PC.
