God Of War Is Getting A New Game Plus Mode

During the intermission between Sony’s first two conferences, they revealed that they were indeed working on a much requested new game plus mode for their best-selling title God of War.

There was no elaboration on when the mode might land or what you carry over into your next playthrough, but we’re looking forward to being given another reason to romp back through Midgard once more.

Hopefully more information on the mode trickles out sooner than later.

UPDATE: Over on the PlayStation blog, they’ve given us an idea of what changes will happen with New Game Plus. You’ll be able to keep your upgraded armour and weapons, but the difficulty will be harder.

Have you ever imagined that first test of strength defying battle with Baldur while adorning the Valkyrie Armor on Kratos? You can with New Game+. How about a fully upgraded Leviathan Axe at the start of the game? That will also be possible, and quite frankly, you may need it, New Game+ won’t just be a sunny stroll through Midgard.

In New Game+, you’ll start a new game with many upgrades you had from the completion of your last main quest, such as armors, pommels, talismans, and more…except your strength to open or kick down doors remains the same.
