Sony and Santa Monica Studio have announced that the free update for God of War that adds New Game+ will be available to download on August 20 which just so happens to be the four month anniversary of the title.
To access it, you’ll have to have finished the story campaign of the game on any difficulty. New Game+ adds new gear, more difficult enemies and the ability to skip cinematics. You’ll carry over all of your armors, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities from your previous playthrough.
Enemies will be higher level and some will have new tricks to them. There is also a new resource in this mode called Skap Slag that you can use to upgrade your gear to the best of the best. There are also new armor sets and enchantments.
I know I’ll be jumping back in to play more but let us know if you will in the comments below.
