The New Game Plus mode introduces a few new features and challenges as well. If you've already finished the game, New Game+ will be waiting for you once you download the upcoming patch.

This update sounds like a fantastic addition to one of the best games of the year (decade?), but we can't help but wonder just how hard this will make the game's most challenging moments. A New Game Plus mode, originally announced at E3 2018, is coming on August 20. But perhaps NG+ will allow players to bypass or quickly get through entire sections with equipment and skills they shouldn't have. Kratos and Atreus' abilities, enchantments, pieces of equipment, resources, and talismans from your previous run will remain with you. The mode comes with a new resource, "Skap Slag" - which Google Translate tells me means "Cabinet Battle" in Norwegian, that can be used to craft gear and weapons from a new rarity tier. You can use new customization options to upgrade your gear, and use it to take on tougher enemies. Lastly, users can now skip all of the in-game cinematics in normal and New Game Plus after they've beaten the game once.
